Hey everyone, I recently acquired a 5150 head, man... she knows how to growl ! For fun but also for some practice for one of my band's ep coming up, i've done some recording using the preamp out and testing all kinds of IRs. My goal is to get a tone i like while keeping my recording simple such as : record from preamp out, throw some IRs, hp/lp, done. So for this IR comparison, i used a friend's ibanez s420-wk with a bill lawrence L-500XLB bridge pick up. Strings not so new but not used either. 5150 setting's are the same stated in the jason suecof's settings thread i.e. pre gain 4.7 ; low 8.8 ; mid 3 ; high 5 ; post 3 ; res 10 ; pre 9 I also used a maxon 808 = gain 0, volume 10, tone 5 and a isp decimator g string pedal. I then recorded two tracks 80% L & R. Drums are metal machine, no processing, just some leveling and i changed the snare to a ludwig suprasonic. Guitar tracks are sent to a group which has a stereo Q10 with a simple hp@70/lp@15,5k IRs used are made by JakeAC5253, because they rule. loaded with lepou cab 2. I love the metalcore B so i tried to blend it with other IRs from jake's minotaur pack I'm curious to know which one do you like best ? What else could i do to make it better ?

I know the playing isn't tight, i rushed a bit... lack of time. PS: it's kind of a stupid question about hp/lp but i never got a clear answer. for example if you say "hp @ 80hz" must the spectrum start going down progressively from 80hz or has it got to be 80hz on the spot like a wall ?
