hey guys, been looking into getting a mesa dual rectifier head for some good heavy tones. My previous set up had a line out that i could go through a DI into my recording set up and it seemed to produce a cleaner sound than micing the cab. Noticed to Mesa has a 'slave out' that is mostly used for hooking into another amp. Just seeing if this can be used as a 'line out' for recording purposes, has anyone tried this? Also ive heard people taking the Fx loop (send or return?) signal out and into their recording rig, can anyone shed some light on this from experience?

mhhh...to me the best way to record is micing the cab. Maybe you were putting the mic directly in the middle of the cone wich you shouldn't do. I like to have my sm57 half on the middle of the cone and the other half next to it.. Otherwise you'll get a fuzzy grainy tone.

People often complain about the rectos but when you know how to propertly tweak them (they have active EQ) and use them, they're awesome amps.

Impulses can get you some good results but there's a learning curve.

If you're EQ'd loose, you'll sound loose anyway.

yea thats about the position i use as well, u leave space or right against the grill cloth? also any EQ tips to 'beef' up the sound? had been recording with a 57 or EV N/D 468 (ball looking mic). the set up i was looking at was a dual rec with an avatar cab with 2 v30s and 2 g12t-75s in an X pattern. Trying to get a heavy modern gain avenged sevenfold type of tone, any thoughts are appreciated

I leave space between the mic and the cloth.
