Can one really have TOO MUCH gain? I used to always max my gain out but found that I get a better tone for my style with less gain. Now I try to use as little as I can get away with.

You can absolutely have too much gain. After a certain saturation point it's completely diminishing returns. The signal will be so squared off and compressed that you lose dynamics. You will have all the gain in the world but a tiny, squashed feel with no life or variety.

I think if a lot of people would figure that out, they'd be on the road to much better tone.

I try to roughly dial in the tone at half volume, then I turn it up to where I'd be playing it with a drummer next to me. The gain is usually too high and the sound usually still needs a lot of tweaking. Then I turn the gain down to where it starts to loose the feel and harmonic content. Then I start turning it back up until I find the amount of harmonic content that I'm looking for. There is definitely a point where all you're adding is noise. This is when I start to think about whether this is the right module or not ;) Play it for about 1/2hr and I usually have a pretty good idea about that.

Mids @ 7 o'clock? what position do you run the shift switch in? I'm a mid scoop guy, but I find the mids very usable and unique on this module, and run them higher on this module than pretty much any other module I own. You must REALLY like a mid scooped sound :P

That's why I stick with MTS, something for everyone :)

Gain 1 O'Clock
Bass 9 O'Clock
Mids 9 O'Clock
Treble 1 O'Clock
Edge ON
Bottom=Middle
Shift=Down

I only use the Ubersonic for super high gain stuff.
But for me it's the best module in that category.
