Some of the premium Amazon cables look good. I use some in other applications and they work well.
Thanks Yek, I have mentioned in the thread I’m using the LT MIX 7; I have had to use those cuts and the 808 to try and tightened it up; I got the idea from a Leon Todd video.The preset uses a user cab. It's no use guessing / advising if you don't tell us what IR you are using.
Also, the Amp Boost in the Amp block is set to T808. Together with the Cut at 400 Hz this takes away all low end.
No I haven’t considered the cable. It is a dimarzio; had it for a while now.Have you tried a different guitar cable?
I recently had this issue with my Ernie Ball cable and changed to a Mogami Gold Silent cable.
I was reading about those whom claim the cable doesn't make a difference...they are wrong, it totally changed the high end and cleaned up the low end especially on my darker sounding guitars. It totally changed the way my Majesty and JEM-77 FP2 sounds. Cleaned up the sound on both guitars.
In my case $4000CAD guitar to $20 cable to $3000 AX3. Seems it was the weak link.
Yes I watch a lot of Leon’s videos and tried what you mentioned except the negative feedback.On the Freidman have you tried Leons tips
-use his TV mix
-use the low cut in the amp block has much as you have to
-switch to 5153 impedance curve
check the Negative feedback
turn it up if need be
Thanks for all your work helping me out, sounded good You are right about having to dig in to the strings with Cygnus, I think it will help improve my playing. I like tones that are not over saturated, in 15 i would run the gain on 3 and use preamp boost on 12 or 14 for rhythm and that would be good. I really like the modded marshall sound with a tight low end. I like that squishiness when you bounce off the strings. I hope this makes sense. I have been trying out different IR to. I think it will be a case of just getting used to it and just playing more.Ok, just came out of bass land and am going to play around with this now.
Edit- They're definitely stiff, I agree with ya there. Without knowing exactly what you're going for, it's hard to dial things in on my side, so I just played around with each one and tried not to deviate from the original sound. If you can name off some guitarists/songs that feature tones you're going for, I can help point in those directions a little more.
You've really gotta lay into the strings with these amps, which didn't seem to be the case previous to Cygnus. A light picking hand won't work going for a tight, percussive sound from these, not without boosting the shit out of them. A different IR will definitely lend itself to loosening up the feel a bit, but again, I didn't want to change too far from what you had going on.
Here's a couple minutes of slop and wankery, going through each scene, from 1 to 4. I didn't have a problem with definition and once I backed up the Depth, it cleaned up a lot of mud in the low end. On a couple I used the 5 band EQ in the Amp block to cut some mids. I really only found Scene 2 to lend itself to a more modern metal tone. My only guitar with Evolutions is in standard tuning and is a little stiff with the tension itself.
Post back with some examples of what you're going for and I'll see if I can be of any assistance.
2nd Edit- I plugged another guitar in with Fishman Fluence pickups, world of difference with the stiffness and felt like there's nothing that would stop the notes from ringing out. They play entirely differently as well. Tomorrow I'll try working with the JEM to get it comparable. Man, I'm glad I checked this thread because now I've got this preset ready to go!
Here's the preset with my tweaks-
