Here is the overloud patch from Lesson 117

and this is the Amplitude Patch

Both are "Djentish", which sounds better?

First take sounds much better! It has a lot of low and mid range and very "meaty" sound! Take 2 I didn't like at all sounded very weak and wasn't very clear sounded like notes were on top of each other! I don't know if my explanation make sense but that's how I heard it smile.gif LOL

You nailed it smile.gif The first one is OVERLOUD the second is AMPLITUDE. I've found OVERLOUD to generally sound better and work better in a mix.

The Overloud one sounds great, I like all your patches. I've noticed on a number of your patches though, that they add at least 12dB to the signal, so the output clips like crazy. I have to edit them to work with a "normal" input level to make them usable. What are you using for input that requires that much level adjustment?

Good question. My signal path is

Guitar>Behringer Direct Box (20DB gain)>Tascam Mixer Interface (slider at half unity gain) Line Input.

I didn't even think about that. Sorry about that!

What is the input level when the guitar signal reaches your DAW? If it's so low that it needs a 12dB boost in TH1, you might want to consider boosting it in the analog domain before it reaches your computer. Otherwise, your patches won't sound the same for anyone who is using a more typical input signal level.

Believe it or not it reads around unity gain at the daw, bumping yellow, not quite red. But yeah thanks for letting me know about the variances. Let me know if the next few patches do this as well.
