Clean voice super quietI’m an acoustic guitar player just picking guitar up again after around 10 years or so. Decided to get an electric (Squire Classic Vibes 70’s Thinline Tele and an amp (Catalyst 60) as well. Played the guitar through my dad’s modeling amp (Fender) and had no problems. Got my Cat today and turned it on to tried the Clean voicing (the whole reason I got the amp was for clean playing, and I thought it had gotten broke in shipping. Pretty much had to crank channel and master volume on the amp and volume on guitar to even hear it. Tried with headphone and again, it was like the volume was at 10-20 percent. you change to the other voicing and they just about blow you away. I know nothing about amplifiers, am I missing something? I got the foot pedal to be able to switch channels, but with voice volume being so wildly different there is no way I could switch it without blowing the roof off the house. I will play with it more tonight, but feel like something is wrong. you can add some boost, but then it just makes it sound overdriven and is not the sound I am after. Any insight anyone might have would be greatly appreciated.
CELESTION G12H90 vs. VINTAGE 30
mtreehugger posted a topic in DT50 / DT25I've been wanting to add another speaker to my DT50-112 for some time, and I'm about ready to take action very soon, but I'm not sure which way to go. The easy option would be to pick up a DT25 bottom from my local music store, which would then give me a total of two G12H90's. Alternatively, I could save some money if I bought a Vintage 30 cone, then put it, along with the G12H90 currently in my DT, into a spare 2X12 cab I have. (This obviously would be kinda weird having the head actually be a combo w/o a speaker, but all I care about is the tone, and I might ultimately pick up a used head on down line to make it all nice and pretty.) We know that In the DT50 cab and the Dt50-212 they use both rather than one or the other. I understand that the 2 speakers are similar, but the G12H90 is custom-voiced for line 6. The Vintage 30 is of course the #1 selling speaker currently. Does anybody know what differences might I experience with one versus the other? Anybody? THANKS!
DT25 Voicing&Class settings for LongTubeLife
jegler posted a topic in DT50 / DT25DT25 Voicing&Class settings for LongTubeLife Can anyone tell me if the voicing and/or class settings on the DT25 are any harder or easier on the tube life of the amp? That is: if I had every patch play Class A/B Pentode, would that shorten tube life compared to Class A Triode? or viseversa? Does switching back and forth voice/class settings stress the amp or tubes? After getting my amp back from service, my tubes were factory replaced and re-biased, sounded glorious, but tubes are wearing out after <100 hours. I set all patches to Class A/B Pentode and tubes are EH I bought a stash of EH replacement pre's and power tubes. I can just plunk those in and expect to be up and running. Right?
JTV/VDI>PODHD500/L6>DT25 Using different models with different voicings, I've never, ever been able to get my patches level across both the DT speaker and the DT D.I. in the year that I've had it. I spend most of my time in LVM but this also is the case in Full Vol. w/preamps It's mostly the models that use voicing 3 on the DT. Matched at speaker volume (AND matched listening through the pod's own headphone jack), they become way quieter in the DI (relative to the other voices in all cases). (See my test settings below) After emailing tech support numerous times I finally got a useable answer as to why this was, and I was NOT happy. "Unfortunately on DT25 amp the Master Vol on the DT25 does not control DI at all. The DI is controlled by the output of the modeling amps used on the POD. Sorry if this isn't ideal for your set up." How would that be ideal for anyone's setup? If the DI on your amp doesn't actually reflect what's coming out of your amp, that is, well, I guess I can't get my head around that. Totally not ideal. I'm guessing that this all is reflective of a L6 hookup between the pod and the dt? I also guess that's why the the pent/tri or class switches do nothing to the DI sound. What about when the dt is used standalone? Is the DI signal pre-master vol? Is it the same situation for LVM and Full Vol? Can I set the master vol on the dt so it will at least be closer matched to the pod's output? Or vice versa? The patches are level at the DT speaker. The patches are level at the POD hedphone out. Why in the holy f*%k are they not level at the DT's DI?!?!?!??? Because the sonics that come from your amp, which you're trying to duplicate via an output on that very same amp is not actually being controlled from nor does it sound like your amp. Absolutely brilliant. Anyone have anything to add? Please have something to add... System settings: (for all patches) Input 1: guitar+variax Input 2: variax Mixer block: Path A +0dB center panned Path B mute I also set every single patch to Class A/B Pentode and an identical JTV setting. POD mstr vol: 75% DT mstr vol: 75%
