There is no Aux in on the CabClone. I would recommend running the DI signal to a mixer/console where you can also input the MP3 signal, then use the headphone out on the mixer.

Hey there all...

New to the boards, but I have two Cab Clones and LOVE them. However, I hated it upon the initial 30 minutes or so... I had found great settings on my ISP Theta and the Cab Clone sounded quite bad. Decided to alter the snot out of Theta's EQ and man oh man I love the Cab Clone now. I run them both direct with the ISP Stealth driving them, no cabs, and it sounds amazing. Vintage setting on one side, Open back on the other. The Cab Clone made me get rid of my Torpedo CAB (mid trade for a Formula Pre!). :)

Nice!

I have had trouble with my CabClone at home on clean settings. It tends to come out distorted and scratchy even when the amp isn't sounding that way.

Have you noticed such a thing? I definitely get it with my full CC, and I think I remember that being an issue with the MV:25 when I had that.

I don't have an issue with it at my rehearsal studio with my RA100.

I tried a 20dB pad at the mic input of my board at home and it made no difference, so it is not overdriving the mic input.

^^^^^

Flip that ground/lift switch to see if that helps... running both of mine on separate channels connected to the power amp will give me weird scratchy sounds until I have the right one grounded and the other lifted.

Kinda interested in the CabClone and - like many - read some conflicting reviews about it. I've a Triaxis/2:90 setup and for attenuation I get on just great with the THD HotPlate. However, the headphone out and DI out of the CabClone are quite tempting! Anyone with a Tri/2:90 running the CabClone and willing to share their experience?

I was using a Triaxis and an ISP Stealth.

For the life of me, I didn't like the sound... but I've had the Triaxis twice now and eventually sold them. I've sort of found 'my' sound with the ISP Theta line. But, for folks who did the Triaxis, I think it should sound just swell!!

EDIT: I still love the CabClone with my ISP Theta rack preamp. It's very nice... it just took a lot of adjusting the EQ to taste.

I use a cab clone in a stereo setup with radial prodigy(Jdx with active EQ). I really, really like the cab clone with mesa amps.
