Re: Which module is closest to a gallien-krueger

IMO, the GK-ML250 combo is unique and of itself. The corresponding GK-250 head didn't sound like the combo, regardless of the cabinet, because the "sound" of the combo came from the stereo linked 6" speakers in conjunction with their built-in chorus/delay, which featured about 30ms of slapback echo ...

Re: Volume question/muffled tone (module volume affect EQ?)

The tube cage is easily removed and replaced. It's just two small Phillips head screws and removal will not void your warranty.

I don't have tube cages on any of my modules so it's easier to swap out tubes when necessary or when looking for a different tone.

Re: Volume question/muffled tone (module volume affect EQ?)

I can't hear the module due to the video camera picking up the sound of plucking strings. Have you opened the tube cage to verify that they're properly connected and didn't shift during shipping? If so, have you tried swapping the tubes in the Soldano module? FYI, I have four SYN-2's and nine module...

Re: Volume question/muffled tone (module volume affect EQ?)

As far as I know, this is all one issue I'm reporting. Again, when I run this through my power amp, the exact same thing happens through the power amp. Anything more than about 50% level on the SLO starts to get muddy. As I mentioned, my interface isn't clipping. I an put the same 'load' (straight ...

Re: Volume question/muffled tone (module volume affect EQ?)

In my tests, the 2i2 gain was set to 0, same with my DAW (Tested with both Acid 10 and Audacity to be safe). I start to get a little clipping without the cab sim, but the EQ is affected far before the clipping starts. Just to be clear too, this isn't just the DI, it's also the 4 cable method to my ...

Re: Volume question/muffled tone (module volume affect EQ?)

Without being in the same room and seeing how all of this is connected, it sounds like a Gain Staging issue to me. 1. Disengage all of the 2i2's front panel buttons, including the Inst, 48V button and Air 2. Set your Gain knob on the 2i2 fully counter-clockwise (approximately 7 O'Clock) 3. Verify th...

Re: Friedman BE50 or SYN50 and BB/BE and DS modules

Let me say first of I have had SG Marshall module, Jaded Faith RR Platinum,J-Plex,JFM800 and the Salvation Mashall and none of these to my ears gave me a totally accurate Marshall tone. What do you think? If none of those modules are providing you with an "accurate Marshall tone", then there's no w...

Re: VAI Dual EQ Module!!!

Hope so but haven't heard what the price will be. $400 is already steep so I'll cross my fingers that it is the same price as the rest of the modules. I'm surprised it hasn't been released yet since Vai has had one for at least 6 months. Wonder if he's still tweaking it. Will definitely have to get...

Re: NAMM and Modules

Fryette sneak peak #2 on fb: deliverance Coming in 2025 :). Too bad nobody is reading this forum. FWIW, I had a month long dialog with the guys at Fryette from mid-October to mid-November about the best method for chaining together four SYN-2 modules. It was mentioned in November that the first VHT...

Re: Anyone using their Axe-Fx 2 as a cabsim?

is it right or not? because it sounds "muddy"/"overcompressed" when im playing my 8 string . :? :? :? 1. There's a Hi/Lo Gain switch next to the Main L XLR Out (as well as the FX Send). Where is it set? It sounds like it's set to Hi Gain, so try setting it to Lo Gain. If so, it's a Gain Structure i...

Synergy MIDI Pedal-SYN R5?

Hey All, Does anyone own the SYN R5 MIDI pedal and if so, is it easy to set up and use? I work in the studio only, so I don't need elaborate programming or awesome programmable gear like the Voodoo Lab Hex or GCX, just a simpler way to switch between the modules. I currently have four SYN-2's that I...

Re: SYN 30 Combo IR of creamback cabinet ?

So, who has any IR's for the cabs and combos ??? Celestion offers excellent IR's of each and every speaker, along with every speaker cabinet combo as well as multiple mic options (R121, 421, SM57, etc.). I've linked below to the Creamback 65 and 75 watt versions: https://www.celestionplus.com/produ...

Re: Metroplex, VH4 and another SYN-2

How os the Diezel compared to the SLO? My apologies for the vague description but in the short period of time that I've been able to compare, they're very "different". I could probably dial them in to sound very similar (especially in a mix). But overall, the mids, bass and treble on the Diezel are...

Metroplex, VH4 and another SYN-2

I picked up another SYN-2 today along with a Metroplex and VH4 late this afternoon and I've only had about 30 minutes to run through both modules but once I get them dialed in, I'll post some clips. First impressions: The VH4 is just outright awesome. I mean, good grief, what a tone machine! I can d...
