Is there a way to decrease the bass levels? I get way too much bass When I play/record the guitar with the output connected to my PC. I have the bass knob turned all the way down in the pedal AND my guitar. And i still get a little too much of bass.. Any help here?

I have an ESP LTD AX-260.

Go to cabin's DEP and increase the bass cut off up to 80hz about.

Some of the models can be really boomy/muddy, as with many things HD there are lots of options, not all of which will work for your specific set-up.


Try reading http://foobazaar.com/podhd/toneGuide/ which is a really deep guide


Some things you might try include:


  • Increase the "Lo Cut" in the Amp Deep Editing Parameters (DEP)
  • Change to a different Mic model
  • Change to a different Cab model - open back are less boomy than closed back cabs
  • Reduce the model master volume (DEP) - the cab when pushed really hard adds som
  • The real world technique often uses a Tube Screamer with low gain (including zero) before the Amp but other stomps can do as well
  • Add an EQ before the Amp (same as the above really)
  • Add an EQ after the Amp
