Re: Recto Recording Preamp

Do you guys have any tips for overdrive pedals over clean channel on Recto Preamp? I'm thinking of buying Roctron Patchmate 8 looper and I'm looking for a nice overdriven tones other than Recto. I already have now BB Preamp, EH Nano booster and Marshall Guv'nor. Do you have any thoughts of Radial To...

Re: Recto Recording Preamp

As I mentioned on other post, I really like my Recto Preamp with live outputs to Mesa 2:50 poweramps. When I first bought it, I put EQ controls in "marshall" position ->bass and treble high, mid low. And I remember that I thought what the F#%¤. It's unlike my bandmate's Triaxis where you get almost ...

Re: Recto Recording Pre

I have one myself with the 2:Fifty poweramp. I like it, sounds very good with a V30 cabinet. I'm looking forward to have a Roctron Patchmate 8 looper with Midi switching so I can have boosters/overdrives on and off with one push of a button. My bandmate has a Triaxis/2:90 and I have nothing to be sh...

Re: G-major switching Recto Pre channels?

Fear not! I am here to tell you the GMajor will do the relay switching for the Recto pre. I know, because I have been doing it for a couple years. You will need a "Y" cable. Stereo 1/4" to L and R mono. The stereo/balanced end goes to the Recto Pre and the other two come out of the GMajor. Program ...

Well, what happens is that I do everything as written on those intructions to update 1.27 OS, the count on G-major stops at 140 and message "downl...

Re: G-major switching Recto Pre channels?

Recto Pre's 2nd channel can be set to switch between modes, if modern mode is selected. Solo boost-function is only working on Vintage mode (if selected on a switch). And because G-major can handle solo boosting, I'm looking forward to use both modes live. Gain and EQ settings are of course the same...

Re: G-major switching Recto Pre channels?

So I'll be safe using both of G-major relays with the Recto Pre? 8)

Thanks a lot for your answer! I thought that I would be limited to use only one relay as suggested there and on other forums... so I have no problem with this in my setup.

G-major switching Recto Pre channels?

I've heard rumors that G-major relays cannot be used to switch channels on Mesa Rectifier series amps? How about Rectifier Preamp? Anyone here using G-major with Recto Preamp for switching channels and vintage/modern mode, just bought G-major and heard these bad news...

Re: Mesa preamps?

Last night I finally had my sound completed, boosting Recto Pre with TS-9 Gain 0, Level max... said it to my bandmates when: All of a sudden, right side of the Rec Pre lost it's volume, not completely, but you could hear only silent sound. Record out's were both as silent as right live output. Stron...

Re: Mesa preamps?

Hi, thanks for the tips. I have TS9 which I intend to try boosting the Rec Pre.. btw I just found out a video in youtube where Mark Snyder builds John Petrucci a live rig on Train of Thought tour and there's three Road King heads..

Re: Mesa preamps?

Ok,

must see if I can find a decent lead-tone with boosting preamp, otherwise I must buy Triaxis. It can take some time though.. those are awfully pricey in Europe.

Re: Mesa preamps?

Does Triaxis have more gain than Recto Pre? :shock:

Is it that way Rectifier head vs. MarkIV also? I'm surprised if so.. I realise they are different, but it seems that Rectifier Preamp doesn't have enough gain for solos..
