So I was recording some stuff today from my 6505. Rhythm stuff sounded pretty darn good (go listen in my profile to the top song) but when it came time for recording some solo stuff or more intricate rhythm work the volume would roll off. Like simple chugging and stuff sounded pretty good but higher stuff just didn't come through.

I'm wondering if a compressor would help this or what I should do.

[Edit] Also what is a good distance to have the mic away from the cone? I'm using a shure SM58 if that makes any difference.

a sm57 would be better.
try experimenting with micplacement, alot goes into it, so just try some things.
i would think, if your highs are as loud as the rest of your notes, then maybe a compressor would help.
