    The guitar sounds too quiet and the keys and bass too loud imho. The song is nice, just that. And well, maybe add a bit more mids to the guitar to make it sound more smooth, but dunno, maybe it's the guitar, with the low tuning of the 7th string and all.

    Well they are 500. It's a basic poweramp and from what i know should let the Preamp do most of the "how it sounds". It's all tube and if i remember right it should have the Class A/Class AB thing that you can split the power to 50 watts from 100.

    If you can squeeze out some ol' stuff to sell I'd reccomend you aiming for that.

    Ebay. Although from what i know it's just a power amp that does not make your tone better or anything...It's more like a Tube version of a Solid state. No sound character on its own but powerful.

    When I am getting a rack I am probably going to search for a used VHT 2/50/2 on Ebay...Maybe you could look into that aswell?

    Not fond of eBay, plus I don't and can't have atm a Paypal account, which narrows my options to almost 0. I guess I'll just go for the Rocktron.

    Well, It's cheap and then you can actually save to a better one. You could always use the poweramp on your randall head to power the GP1000. That is possible too.

    :kickass: I lack the Peavey 50/50 and my cab is a Randall but still it's going to be nice. I mean, if it sounds nice like I'm recording now (Yamaha solidstate weird power amp and Harley Benton cab), with the Velocity and a Randall cab should sound nice too.

    I don't have any of it :lol: Randall is long gone, and I'm getting an ADA MP-1 :lol: But yeah, Rocktron will do till I can afford something better.

    Put the Blackouts in the KH-502 and move over the EMG HZ to the EX-100. Problem solved, now both of your guitars sound a bit better.

    Curve EQ?

    I think that shitty ass excuse for a song "Punch Me, I bleed Faggots" on AYDY has just the guitar at the beginning

    I used curve EQ but it will apply a a slightly different EQ everytime (using the same preset of course)

    So i'll just loop a section and then just record, tweak, tweak more and repeat.

    There's also that part right before the first verse in living dead beat.

    I really think that weird scooped/phasey is either from narrow ass boosts or some weird micing combo using a 421 or sm7.

    I might sell you mine. But postage would be high, it's a heavy unit.

    Haha well I sorta use the real deal with the Gp1000

    RR24 > J50BC > SD-1 > GE1000 > 7band graphic EQ > Peavey CL 60/60 > Carvin legacy w/ gt75 > 57 clone > VTB-1 > Cubase > EQ plug

    Did a slight scoop with the graphic EQ. Cut the mids (-1 around 800hz) then boosted the lows and highs

    Then in post, I did some slight Eqing as well (like the most by +/- 2 on certain freq's)

    The key was the micing position, between the edge and dustcap.

    I need to get me a fucking i5 or something that has more highs and lows.
