So, I play in a Praise and Worship band each Wednesday and Sunday. I send directly to the board via mono XLR. Problem 1: I use a MiM Strat with stock pickups fairly often. The volume cuts in HALF when I use it. The "gain" also cuts out a ton. My clean sounds great, my dirty sounds clean and my big boisterous solo sounds like a hint of overdrive with some delay.... Never had this issue with my Mustang 4 and "real pedals." Problem 2: Guitar 2 has an Invader in the Bridge...which I love...But that thing is TOO HOT for the Helix, in my opinion. Cleans are dirty, and dirty is just raw. Yes, I roll back the volume, but never had to with my Mustang IV, OCD, MojoMojo Holy Grail and Flashback delay. Problem 3: Guitar 3 has active EMGs. Sounds beautiful on everything I do, but It is a baritone that I have tuned up to D standard. E standard is too tight and makes it feel like an acoustic.....Leads on an acoustic? Tuning inaccuracies? Damage to the guitar? nah..... and No I don't want to capo or play everything on this guitar "transposed" and stuff (I majored in music...it isn't hard. I know what you're thinking) So, since I'm a newbie at this thing (one week/performance), What can I do to help level the dynamics (volumes) of each guitar? Should I just put up the guitar with the Invader? I'm clueless about EQ'ing these things btw. I understand frequencies, but not how to get the sound I want. Does anyone have some awesome patches. I've already gotten the ones from the Worship Tutorials website. Anyone have any Super clean..no grit, then Chunky, then solo/lead tones? I plan on setting snapshot 4 as an ambient swell. Thanks so much for all you guys do! PS: I've tried the Pad, and a few other little things.
Q: Why do presets I built from scratch sound different than similar factory presets? A: When creating new presets from scratch and comparing the tone to an existing factory preset with the same settings, please remember to check the mixer settings of that preset to see if they may be different than how you have it set in your own preset.? If the mixer settings of the factory preset are different than the mixer settings of another identical preset, they can both sound different than each other even though they share the same amp model and tone settings. The mixer settings are saved per preset and are NOT global.
