    At 26 seconds and onward, it sounds like the guitar has a weird filter on it. Was that intentional?

    I'd have that looked into, bro. It doesn't sound good. Not trying to be rude.

    Nah I hear what he's talking about, there's a pokey/ringy frequency in the middle that's really obvious on the open notes. I think it's in the grind on the bass guitar. You could notch that out really easily.

    I found the krank line really fun but temperamental as a whole. In a studio environment they're a killer option. Live the interactivity between volume, eq and distortion can be frustrating.

    Ah right I was wondering what he ment, the bass stringy sound? I guess its very 'Fieldy'... next mix, less stringy bass :p

    Yeah, that's what my first thoughts were. Just wasn't 100% sure.
    Yup. I guess that's what I was hearing.

    Other than the bass thingy the others mentioned, I think it sounds pissed off!

    I have a Rev Jr. which I love, but yeah, its knobs' sweet spots are REALLY REALLY narrow. The amp loves the mic, though.

    Pretty sure 1 is the KPA; the pick attack is a little more forward and the upper midrange seems a little less squishy in general. I tend to find the KPA does this to all amps but it's a very subtle change.
