billlorentzen Posted July 26, 2015 Share Posted July 26, 2015 The mics used on the cabs change the amp sound so much, I sometimes don't know whether to start with the EQ on the amp or the mic selection when dialing in a sound. With a flat mic (no added or subtracted EQ or frequencies), you could start out with the sound of the amp in the room, so to speak, just the way you would with an actual amp and dial it in with the tone knobs how you like it, then put on your engineer hat and choose a mic that flatters the amp. Then if necessary add additional EQ. I'm afraid this idea doesn't get much traction because many people Haven't considered this concept, but I think they would really appreciate it if they could try it. There are lots of great ideas on ideascale, but this one is absolutely basic and could positively help every player and every choice you make when creating your sounds, so I really think it deserves attention! Vote it up! http://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/643613-23508 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
