After seeing the interest expressed in my EQ frequency responses, I decided to take the HD500 back into the lab to measure gain. How much gain is there from the various inputs? How much gain thru the various EQ (my previous post lists some of that)? Perhaps look at gain thru some of the FX? Or maybe I shouldn't look at gain. I am soliciting other ideas to look at while I have it in the lab. Do any of you have any ideas?

I understand this would be a lot of work since you'd have to do every amp model, but could you look at the effect of the master volume DEP on a signal? E.g. frequency profile (warmth?), distortion, compression etc.


Also would be cool to see what each microphone model selection does to the frequency profile of the signal (normalize to flatten it out so we can just see the effect of the mic).
