Hi there, I've been trying to get better at recording and positioning the mic.

I did some quickies to see how it would sound.. I'm not completely happy with the recordings, but it give the idea.

I just learned today that recording requires different EQ adjustments than playing live. So the presence sounds a bit high.

In XXX 3-way I cut back on the presence and gain to make it sound more tool-ish.

...and I'm really happy with the XXX cleans!

Enjoy.

I'm really glad you'll never own one of these too.

You'll probably never be successful at guitar skills, but you'll always be successful at being a dick.

Cheers!

Ouch and Zing for you mister.

I'm sure it probably sounds better in person, but it sounds so muddy and just EQ'd strange...did you really scoop the mids for every sound clip?

Just wondering, but nice peavey anyway.

I really didnt like those tones too much. The metal one sounded way too thin for me and it seemed to have almost too much gain. The 3 way and mystic death sounded alright, but not amazing. I have a few soundclips that I have recorded of my XXX if anyone wants to check those out as well.

You were almost irritating me until I opened your profile to see that your just a young kid.

So how has trolling for attention been working for ya?
