So i built my standard "play-along" tone on Toneport using the Mesa Boogie amp model to get some good powerful distortion, but the thing has no definition. i would like to be able to hear all the notes, instead when i play something like Holy Wars or some equally fast/picked riff it all blends together to mush. It's really messing with my recordings. I've tried turning down the gain but that doesnt do much. Any ideas on how to give the tone more definition?

ya, the mesa model on that thing is horrible. Try using some of the other amp models with with the overdrive pedal. Might be able to find something a little better.

try the spinal puppet with a treadplate cab, with the screamer to clean it up a bit, some compression and EQ. and some Reverb.

Try using different Cab/Mic combinations.

Play a Cort ?

Play with V-Picks ?

which Treadplate are you using TS? theres the single and the dual.

i was just out the Dual Treadplate and i got a good thrash metal tone. i don't know how to play Holy Wars, but i was playing a little bit of Angry Again, some Anthrax and Slayer, It could of been better but i didn't tweak it. i actually used all the pedals and EQ for my other setting and just switched the amp model to the Duel Treadplate, cut the mids a little and gave it a tad more gain. it sounded pretty damn nice given that i didn't do anything.
