Hi, one of my friends has a JTV-59 which he bought because he liked the Variax concept after seeing/hearing me playing with my Variax 700. I tried his 59 and I noticed on all strings a remarkable and quite annoying sort of limiter/compression effect with every model available which affects in a bad way especially the attack of the notes (trying to pluck the strings with fingers the issue is even worse).. But when switching from models to mag PUPs (which sound louder) the guitar sounds just perfect.. which thing makes me think that the guitar physical setup doesn't need to be re-done, and it's not the culprit of the models signal compression I mentioned above.. My old 700 doesn't have and never had this sort of compression issue. Doing my searches I've read somewhere that a solution to get rid of the unwanted compression could be to lower the strings global level and turn up the models levels to compensate, and probably I will suggest this type of solution to my friend. But if this should be the best solution (waiting for confirmation), I still wonder why it is necessary to do this type of adjustment with JTV, where it has never been necessary with my old tech Variax. Official (but not exclusively) answers/ideas would be very appreciated.
Recording questionSo the way I've been recording is I use the Helix into an interface which then goes into my Mac. On the Helix I have the guitar patch EQ'd and Compressed. I was wondering if I would get better mixing results by bypassing the EQ and Compression on the guitar patch for when I record, and then do the EQ'ing and Compression on my DAW.
I Think I'm Stuck On The CompressionHi all, I haven't posted in a million years, but I'm looking for some help. I have a tone I love from back when I played through a PodxtPro. It looks pretty simple, but I've never been able to reproduce that tone on my HD500. I can set everything on the HD500 to match the settings on the PodxtPro except for the Compressor. I can't seem to dial in the compressor with any of the options we have on the HD500 here's the tone Any Ideas would be appreciated. I was hoping the conversion app pinned at the top of the HD Forum would help me make the jump, but it looks like it only converts between the HD models. (which would make sense) Thanks in advance Millerman Basic HiwattLDSC.l6t
