Digitech Death Metal

Level: 6
Low: 8
Mid: 4
High: 7



My death metal pedal always has too much high end no matter what, through the clean channel, and putting it on the drive channel is only asking for more static and ear rape. I'll try this to see if its still all nasty.

Yes, I do use overdrive pedals like plain distortion pedals. I like my amps to stay perminantly as clean as possible, so I don't use their own gain and the volume increase from using an OD as an OD is worthless to me, so everything gets used as a straight distortion. For the record, I do prefer the tone of OD pedals than most distortion pedals, which is why I don't just buy actual distortion pedals.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

i have an American Metal FX56.. what's the best setting for this pedal? =] i want that thick rich sound..
#23
The best setting I found for a DS-1 going into a clean amp is:

Tone: around 10 o'clock
Level: around 10 o'clock also
Dist.: around 2 o'clock

for the Satchurator I'm all over the place with varying Gain and Level depending on what I'm after but the Tone usually stays between 9-10:30. Having the More switch on it is a great feature.
