I'm liking your tone personally smile.gif Very organic and "Amp Sounding" not "processor sounding". Just keep pushing it smile.gif Adding a compressor is a great idea on lead stuff. Is there a Multiband Compressor on the unit?

This is my favorite solo on Youtube. I watch this every time I feel down about my playing, it lifts my spirits. Danny Roffe managed get an amazing tone from relatively average equipment - a Vox Tonelab and an Alesis Quadraverb. He also uses a DiMarzio Pro 54 noiseless single coil. This is equipment tone snobs will turn their noses up to in dismissal.

It just so happens that Danny Roffe is a beast on guitar, which helps laugh.gif

Thanks Todd. Im trying my best smile.gif Im considering adding a couple of tone city overdrive pedals in with the pod to see how it sounds.
It has a few compressors in the pod -
Tube Comp
Red Comp
Blue Comp
Vetta Comp
Boost Comp
might be one more, cant remember offhand.

I had a Line 6 amp head (VETTA) that had a line 6 processor built in to it which was handy smile.gif The guys in Meshuggah used this same head on tour for a couple of years. It had the same exact set of compressors. I liked the boost comp and tube comp but they all did the job smile.gif Here is a quick tone test I did with the VETTA using some high/low gain bits.

It did a sort of DIME tone pretty well wink.gif It did cleans very well. Just couldn't make it Djent.

The clean tones were my fave thing about VETTA smile.gif I did like that you could do two amp sims at once and have each do something different. It did a great job on Dimebag type tones but I couldn't get it to tighten up without using a actual stomp box overdrive for boost and then pulling back the gain on the amp sim. I"ve owned the Vetta and the Pod XT so I've been able to get somewhat familiar with their internal options. If I remember correctly, the vetta had a graphic eq with sliders though which is a bit different and the XT used the older EDIT software which was a bit different than the HD edit.

Both of mine were previous gen units and the HD series is the generation after. Now they are on to yet another generation of algorithms with the HELIX. I did notice that many of the bits from the Vetta/XT seem to be still part of the HD in terms of what they are called, like the list of compressors. I wonder if it will stay the same on the helix?

Thanks! smile.gif Yup, it's just the preamp going through a power amp and into the Randall 4x12. It's an ancient cab with the original Jaguar speakers in it (the ones DIME used waaay back when). I did another vid with it in the FX LOOP of my 11 rack. Turned off the amp section in the 11 and just used the cam sim. I was pretty shocked how well it worked. smile.gif

LOL! probably not biggrin.gif He is a little bit good rolleyes.gif

I would also give a shout out to Steve Rothery. He's clearly went to the school of Gilmour but that's no bad thing cool.gif
Im not a massive fan of 'post fish' Marillion but I do like Mr Rothery's playing and tone.

Shawn Lane had killer tone smile.gif Most of it really was in his hands. He had a cool way of using fx too. He was a fellow Southerner and Georiga native smile.gif It was very sad to watch him slowly eat/drink himself to death though sad.gif

Didn't he suffer from some sort of disease or something that he got medicine for that caused his weight to increase? Can't remember exactly now.
