just a question I've been pondering all day (but I can't make any noise at home at the moment, so just thinking out loud...)
I have two guitars that I want to use with my HD500X. I don't want different effects for each guitar, just the tonality and feel changes just by swapping guitars...
1. PRS Custom 22 - Dragon 2 pickups.....seem quite hot.
2. Fender Strat - factory pickups....seem a lot weaker.
If I want to have both guitars connected to allow me to choose which guitar to play for which song, is this how I go about doing it??
Assuming that because the PRS is my main guitar, and the strat would only be used on some clean tones...
On all of my patches I duplicate another amp chain (only using single amp chains at the moment), while keeping all other fx in a more conventional single chain approach, then pan both signal paths to the center, and then I could use the mixer to compensate for the quieter pickups of the strat?
So for example a patch might look like:
Noise Gate >> Overdrive >> split into amp A (PRS) and amp B (strat) >>mixer straight after both amp chains meet again >> delay and mod fx etc....>> output.
Then maybe add 5db or whatever required, to the lower amp chain (amp in the mixer panel to bring the strat up to the level of the PRS?
Is that how I would do it?
