Re: Live recording - tweed this time

Here is the signal chain: Suhr Modern Pro Boogie Mark V MESA Rectifier 2x12" Shure SM57 (close miked where the dustcap meets the cone) Interface (...

Thank you!

Are you using the GEQ for your crunch sound?
Thanks. Yes, classic Boogie V with the top two flattened off a bit. No EQ on the clean channel.

Re: More Mark V live - shred time!

Thanks dude. Settings are explained here http://forum.grailtone.com/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=72170

For this recording I mic'd my MESA 2x12" though. It's V30-loaded and the mic was an SM57.

Re: Any Mark IV owners compared directly to the JP2C?

I prefer the gorgeous mids and the detailed highs of the JP-2C. I feel like I can hear the strings better with that amp. I'd be happy to sacrifice the bed of extreme lows that the Mark IV has for those qualities. Ultimately though, I'd be happy with either. Great work, cheers.

Re: Mark V No No's!

Perfect posts so far. I'd add: Make sure the rear of the head is free from obstruction and well ventilated. Make sure the internal fan is on. Always warm up the amp on standby for at least 30 seconds. Check your speakers are all OK. If you have for example one blown speaker in a 4x12 it will throw o...

Re: Mark V live again... VH time!

I was surprised how little bleed there was actually. We were on grass and in a marquee which helps I guess. There was a bit of guitar down the vocal mic, and obviously a little bit of snare in almost everything, but other than that it was pretty separated. We were all pretty close together so no pha...

Re: Mark V live again... VH time!

Thanks. A lot of work went into the drums which are always the hardest to get right in this type of scenario. I went with a constructive approach on the EQ; looking at what was bleeding where and instead of trying to gate or EQ it out, complementing it with a corresponding EQ cut somewhere else. A g...

Re: Mark V live again... VH time!

I normally go to around 80% of the volume I want and use the PA to add a little clarity and spread. I find it helps my singing a little bit if have the guitar a little quieter. It's still pretty loud though :) Glad you liked the sound. Our keys player runs a great studio; he recorded the whole gig a...

Re: Mark V live again... VH time!

It was recorded dry down a SM57 into a portable Pro Tools rig. Then I imported it into a Logic project for mixing. There is a fair bit of bleed down the vocal and snare mics as it was all done in very close quarters, but I managed to get the tone pretty much where I wanted. There's a stereo verb bus...

Re: Boogie Mark V brown sound

I'm playing quite loud and I dig in pretty hard. I think that's a big part of this equation.
