Just messing around with the DI's you posted.. these Arc300's were stupid easy to dial in. Every amp-sim I tried, it just had a way better starting point for my ear and likewise better ending tone.

The 707 clip on the other hand, took a lot of tweaking for me to get a sound I like from them. It's a combination of trying to tighten it's slightly squishy nature (not muddy) to get a good chunk out of them and trying to keep the tone focused and clear enough. Quite a balancing act, though some people love that fat chunk tone they naturally have, I guess you either like it for you playing or you don't. I agree though.

So, if given I had to pick one to play with, it'd be the Arc for sure in this case. But on the otherhand, I wasn't big on the 707's myself in my old Hellraiser and ended up with switching them out, so the results are not surprising to me. I'd say swap 'em.

Definitely give the EMG X-series(81-7x)/Blackouts a try though if you can find some to play, you might just change your mind a bit as far as actives go.
You should here the ARC now that I've actually set it up properly. I've set the action up a little higher and it sounds even thicker now, I love it.

I'm going to be selling the Loomis down the road anyways though so no point in ....ing with it now.

Hey, any progress?
I'd really love to have DI tracks of the Crunch Lab/LiquiFire!

Hi I think you may not have posted these in your public folder on dropbox. No one can access them until you put them in the public folder and repost. Thanks.

Someone should post a DI of the crappy RGA8 stock pickups so we could know just how bad they really are.

I'd love to contribute but had a couple questions. First is do you want to stick to just DI's specifically? Just asking because there's a line out on my Blackstar head that I use for recording. Using the clean channel with everything set to noon is close to a DI, especially considering there's still no mics or pushed air to deal with or think about, but it could still be tonally biased. The other is... well nevermind I think I just had one question. I'm tired. I've probably forgotten.

That would be very different from a DI. Don't you have anything to match the impedances? A POD or almost any multieffect would do the job.

Nice deals with: zimbloth, Leon, slimegod, TMM, angus, 7 Dying Trees, OrsusMetal, iondestroyer1527, mgcasella, lobee, zomb13, Elysian, Toshiro, smith10210, tecniq, maxident213, code001, Galius, turmoil, highlordmugfug, Revan132, beneharris, MastrXploder, jordanky, Jstring, myampslouder, Michael T, Levi79, Aurochs34

Just asking for my own reference, not for use with this thread.

I'll still use a DI for anything like this for sure.

I'll be posting a DI of a Walnut Carvin DC727 with a Crunchlab Bridge (Both positions) and a Liquifire neck as soon as my PC is up and running. I've also got a Seymour Duncan Invader laying around if anyone wants me to make a DI of that.

First of all, I must say that this is interesting and as soon as I find time to, I will contribute some DIs of Dimarzios 7 on basswood (freted and fretless) and on mahogany guitars. Yes, I found this forum only recently so...

This may be a stupid question, but a guitar's tone starts on its' strings. I am sure you all have experienced the ecstasy of new strings on a guitar. Some may have also tried different gauges and string types, I am now experiencing flatwound mix with D-Activators. Shouldn't it be referenced?

Also, for those who have the possibility, different pickup wiring allows for... errr... new musical ideas and sound landscapes. As I understand (and I read the last 2 pages on a flash), most, if not all these clips are in serial wiring, for a full humbucker sound. On another thread I was asked for the difference between parallel and coil spliting/tapping. I believe that THIS is the place for those answers. Serial, Parallel, Coil Split/Tap and Out of phase wirings are interesting themes to upload.

Last but not least, I have been reading lots of questions for pairing pickups, which combines well with which for this and that. This opens the door to... err... a huge database, but is it not the purpose?

Once again, thumbs up for the initiative.

I wish this thread got more attention and more clips added to our "database".
It's not much, but if I get the time to, I'll contribute my stock PRS Tremonti pickups.

The signature is a lie!

agreed, for those of us with the ability to reamp guitar tracks, I think its a much better idea than pickup demos on youtube or something.

Granted its still someone else's guitar and hands, atleast we can eliminate their amp setup and hear how the pickups sound through our amplification.

or any 8 string DI's at all, really.

So, I finally found some time to do a quick recording.

This is on an Ibanez RG2027X (mahogany body with maple top, maple neck with rosewood fingerboard) equipped with DiMarzio Blaze Neck and Custom, on Neck and Bridge.

The wiring on this guitar is: Neck Serial; Neck Coil split (North coil); Neck Serial + Bridge Serial (in Neck in parallel with bridge); Bridge Coil split (North coil?); Bridge Serial.

The recording features some different types of playing styles (badly executed sorry): Emajor chording, Blues riff, Heavy chugging riff, Chord struming riff. Pickup selection goes always from Neck to Bridge, on all 5 positions previously mentioned,except on last, which is piezo!

I played all riff with all pickups at 44.1kHz sample rate with a Presomus AudioBox 1818VSL.

Last but not least, new strings were used: D'Addario XL Nickel Roundwound -.009, .011, .016, .024, .032, .042, .054

... and here is the mp3 file!...
