    Tony’s Heaven & Hell Live tone?

    Has anyone tried or bee successful at getting Tony’s modern tone? I know most would start with a Marshall but having had a Laney GH50 20 years ago I can say that the mids don’t seem to sit in the same range as a Marshall, among other differences. A good example is around 5:30 in this video.

    Export Impulse Responses with Eq baked in.

    I know there are plugins like Mikko & Libra (both I own) that will allow you to export Impulse Response mixes but I still find the need to EQ these often. Does anyone here know if there is a way to create an IR from these exported mixes with your eq'ing included? That would save me from having...

    FRFR in live sound from stage scenario?

    Hi all. Has anyone been into a situation where you’re playing gigs where the guitar sound to the crowd will be from the stage? In the past with these types of gigs my sound has come from either a 4x12 or 2x12 cab pushed by my Axe FXII running into the fx return of a tube amp. I am thinking of...

    This Three Days Grace Tone

    I am trying to get a certain kind of guitar tone for a project I am working on. We are tying for a more industrial tone which is something I am not used to. If you listen to the tone at :30 in this video where the distorted guitars kick in that's pretty spot on to what I am trying to get. It...

    Switches rough.

    Ventilation space on pedalboard with FM9

    I am starting to put together a pedal board for jamming and some gigs. Beside of my FM9 I have an expression and a whammy. Since the unit vents to the side, how much space you reckon I need to leave for proper heat venting and to not overheat the unit?

    How are you drawing your wah automation in DAW?

    if you are doing this how are you? Ideally I'd like to do it with my foot for it to be more authentic. Of course I've thought of recording with a way but I really like the idea of using one in my FM9 during reamping so I can really sculpt the sound.
