This is my first post on this forum. I need to find a solution for this problem.
My equipement - ESP ltd ex400 (emg 80/61), BOSS ME 70, FLEXTONE III XL
I decided to use BOSS ME-70 as my whole effect point.... so to make it. I avoiding preamp of Flextone III XL, so i can use only speakers of the amp.. so BOSS ME 70 doing whole job about creating my tone.
The problem is.. that i can't get decent distorted sound, which won't be hurting ears becaues of weird HIGH TONES... even if i will reduce treble pot on BOSS ME70 to minimal ammounts... amp keeps producing weird thin, high sound... it is pretty feel-able at around 7 meters from amplifier. Any solutions? Maybe i shouldn't avoid preamp... so i would try to set a "cleanest clean" on flextone possible.... How to make it then? I can't just switch off of simulations on the amp.
Please. Don't ask me why i'm using multieffect, while i have amp with bunch of effects... i just like much more ME70 instead of Flextone simulation and effects.
Some say, these high, ear-attacking sounds, are just affected by my active EMG pickups... but i don't think so this sounds coming out of the pickups.. just because it's have additionall power.
Btw. when i'm avoiding preamp in flextone, i just have to plug "dummy jack"... which is weirdest thing i ever saw about amps... is it.. "legit" in musical sense.
Greetings and i hope someone will answer here.
