Well I'm starting to consider these things NADs since they are preamps but what ever. New module day it is.

I got this yesterday so it's a lie but this is what I got.





It's very recto like in the sense that it's got a lot of bottom end and isn't very tight but with a boost it tightens up nicely just like most rectos. I really like it but I like the module I built just a bit better. Still though this and the Baron in stereo would be interesting.

It's got both the Red and Orange channel just like a recto and if you don't know what they do it's basically the red channel is a bit more scooped while the orange has quite a bit more mids. I like the Red channel a bit better since I don't like extreme amounts of mids. The tight switch is awesome for cleaning up the bottom end but I kept it in the loosest position for the recording since it felt like I lost sustain.

and a clip

Alright all better. I just got superior drummer 2 and I really hate it compared to BFD2. So my drums sound like shit. Not to mention my sister moved my mic positioning and I didn't mark it. There goes a few days of setting up.

Pretty sweet clip you got there.
Definatly has that mesa tonality could probably use some bass in there to fill out the sound though.

^^ Thanks man! I like my little trill sweeps

^ Yeah I know what you mean. Listening to it more I could have done better but I think the low amount of bass was just bad micing.

Also adding a bass would help lol

Did you personally mod that Dragon module?

Because that thing is heavy as ****.

EDIT: Ha, sweet.

Dude, I heard that before and after the drums, and I gotta say; it sounded good without, but with the drums I could really tell what you were going for. Great tone, great playing.

Yeha that's my main mod at the moment. I've done the mod for about four people now all with good results it seems. I built it to be the ultimate metal machine haha but regret it and I'd rather not build over someone else's work. Kind of an insult since they spent the time figuring out what sounds best.

^^
Thanks man , I really got to learn how to get them to sound more natural. Right now they sound like crap to my ears haha.

I'll try later tonight

Ya the drums don't sound great, but at least they let you know how that tone would work in a mix, and the result is pretty damn good.

^^ Very true. I still like BFD2 better though. The drums sounded very natural for a drum program. It also had 25gigs of samples too lol.

I thought you were done with the RM stuff? I mean in your last thread, you still didn't seem to be satisfied with your custom module.

Are you planning on modding that Recto module btw?

Nah. Like I said it's just not proper to mod over someone else's work. Someone else is bound to like it out there but I'm going to keep it and throw some Tung-sols in there. I think it will sound a bit better. I hate JJs and Tung-sols have always been a great upgrade for the better.

But I might be moving on with the MTS stuff someday. I have something else in mind for a long term kind of thing but otherwise I'm sticking with it for a while.

So no more modding going on? I for one don't see anything wrong with tweaking something to your tastes...

Nah, the modder is very respectable and his work is good but I plan on reselling this in the future so it'd be worth more as well if I don't do anything to it. When he mods it the price almost doubles retail.

Take a listen to the clip again. I added bass. :/

I know what you mean. Whenever I try to record, it sounds great in the room, but like crap once it's recorded.

Your clips sound great though.

Nice clip, just like always

Sounds good, but it just sounds like somethings not right it's probably the drums...

Do you feel like your getting close to your desired tone?

I have my tone in my Baron. It's the exact one I want. But hey, what's wrong with searching for others? The recto was a tone I was never really for. It always had it's place and I knew where but it just wasn't for me. Why I traded for this is beyond me.
