I might have stumbled on a rookie mistake but: how come my acoustic sounds are so lousy, meaning sounding very boomy, digital and nasal, and not nearly as good as I hear others?
My setup is the following:
- JTV 89, updated to HD models
- using normal Jack-Jack cable to
- Boss GT8
On the GT8, I can select (for instance) the Full Range model, which should basically entail the same as plugging straight into a PA (where the GT8 then simply functions as DI)
Attached is a short sound sample
- First: the JTV89, Acoustic position 5 (Gibson model) straight into the GT8, Full Range model, all EQ at 50%, no other processing than a little bit of hall reverb-
- Then: similar, but with the 'Acoustic Processor' of the GT8 engaged. It does get brighter, but it doesn't get much nicer beautiful.
In both cases, the acoustic 'feel' is there, especially with single notes, but it doesn't get nearly as realistic as I've heard other people have their JTV sounding (on Youtube for instance, next to the Line6 Demos)
What do you think? Is it a cable problem i.e. should I use the VDI cable for acoustic stuff?ps
Ps, I had some trouble updating to the HD models, but everything else seems to be fine.
