    Atomic CLR Neo lost high end?

    Played a show tonight (Axe8), and suddenly my treble was gone. A typical Marshall patch that sounds mean and nasty suddenly sounded like a jazz guitar on the neck pickup. Switched to my backup guitar thinking the bridge pickup went out, but sound was the same. Has anyone experienced this? I...

    Great tone from CLR sounds like a blanket over a PRX712?

    Excellent tips, thank you, I really appreciate it! I'll also keep the program material running through the speakers for a few hours in case they need breaking in.

    Great tone from CLR sounds like a blanket over a PRX712?

    I appreciate the tip! I'm not as well versed in sound tech as I should be. I attached a screen shot of the EQ on my guitar mixer channel that I just added, is this what you mean?

    Great tone from CLR sounds like a blanket over a PRX712?

    Hi folks, I could use some advice: For years I've used a CLR Neo as a backline or personal monitor. We've been getting more requests for private events where there is no sound system, so instead of using the rehearsal PA , I bought a new setup, Behringer XR18 with JBL PRX712s. I was testing...

    Set List Maker vs BandHelper

    We've been using OnSong for 6 years. Early on it was buggy for us. In the last year or two, occasionally it crashes, but not very often. I haven't seen ads. Our biggest complaint is its 9 steps, which require technical skills, to share a set with the band - and you must use DropBox to do it...

    TDR Cornford was a Fremen preset, I should drop him a line. So Many Roads is an Axe preset.

    Decided to try some new lead patches. Normally, I can control squeal by keeping my hand on the strings. With these 2 patches, TDR Cornford and So Many Roads, nothing I do keeps it in check. I tried changing settings on the gate, but eventually the gate is so strong I lose dynamics and bloom. I...

    How to get vol inc/dec switches working for both outputs ?

    I've only recently started using both OUTs. So if you are using Vol INC/DEC to volume balance presets on OUT1, those changes will not carry over to out2 and out2 will still be out of whack?

    From (good) bedroom tone to (weak) live sound...

    Be patient, as others have said, you need to tweak at the volume you will be playing at, preferable at practice, or if not feasable, then with an MP3 playing to see how it sounds in the mix. I've now got 2 sets of identical patches, a low volume set and a high volume set.

    Problem after upgrade: boost volume not lowered by hitting another preset switch

    Question on routing OUT1 to FOH w/cab sim, OUT2 to Matrix/EVM12L without Cab sim

    AH, ok I think I understand. So, if I want CAB OFF sounds to come out of OUT1, I should split my last effect. One end, without CAB block, should go to the OUT block. The other end of the split, I insert the CAB block, and run it into the FXL block, and not into the OUT block. Is that correct?
