    Agreed. Also love the smooth lead tone in A Savior In the Square, and the lead in The Rload to Revolution.

    Dream Theater - The Astonishing

    So far I'm really enjoying this album, and I'm excited to see them live in February. The thing I'm concerned about is LaBrie having such a big role. I think he's doing a great job on the album, but he often struggles live and I'm afraid his performance won't be satisfactory this time either. I...

    Patch for nylon string guitar

    Yeah I remember some of those threads several years ago, but any patches made then won't be compatible with the new hardware / firmware. But I guess I can get some tips in those threads anyway. Thanks for your input, I'll mess around with the Tube Preamp and some comp. I might be better off just...

    Patch for nylon string guitar

    I have a pretty cheap classical guitar with nylon strings and crappy pickups. It doesn't sound any good straight in, so maybe an amp and cab sim and some effects and EQ will help, but I have no idea where to start. Does anyone have a patch made for nylon strings that I could take a look at? Thanks.

    The Enemy Inside Dream Theater Patch

    Didn't find the preset either, so I tried to get a smiliar sound to the original: I don't have a 7-string so I had to cheat with my 6-string. Added the patch if anyones interested.

    Double vs Quad tracked

    Totally agree about the 2 tracks sounding too thin. And I do play at fairly low levels since I'm at home. So maybe that's the reason the original sounds more massive, because he plays at intense high volume?
  28. T

    Double vs Quad tracked

    And yeah, volume is obviously a difference here, I was just too lazy to adjust when I muted the other two tracks :) But still, I think the massiveness of the guitar in the original is better reproduced in the quad-version than the double-version..

    Double vs Quad tracked

    But is the original clip really only double tracked? It doesn't sound like it. When splitting the original track to mono tracks and listening to the either one of them, it doesn't sound like a single track. I guess if it was panned only partly left/right they would bleed into eachother, but to...

    Thanks for your input. One turn at the truss rod seemed to fix the problem. It's tuned in E standard so I don't know why I said C-string, it was the B-string that was missing. As I have only one guitar, I have been changing both gauge and tuning from time to time over the years. But 95% of...

    Mark IV / V Graphic EQ

    The Mesa EQ is after the pre amp but before the power amp section, correct? If we use a PEQ to replicate the exact bands and Q values and place it after the amp block, should it basically do the same thing as the real thing or should we expect a big difference in the sound?
