    Post some samples!! Do the MD421 IRs live up to your expectations? Pretty interesting mic. In my opinion it's shoddily built and wickedly over-priced, but if it sounds good that's all that matters, hahah.

    From my experience the presence 2 IRs are the "ideal" ones to be using. They have the presence knob on the 6505+ set to 8, which is where I always end up setting it when I run guitars through it for re-amping, etc. It seems the most balanced to me. The presence 3 IRs have the 6505+ presence knob set to nine, which is the highest I ever set the presence. Beyond that it becomes to fizzy for me. So I tend to avoid using pres_4 and pres_5 IRs, except maybe for rooms and special fx.

    I see a lot of people using the presence 4 or 5 IRs which is pretty extreme and potentially fizzy. If those IRs sound the best, you should probably turn the treble and presence on your amp head sim up and try to get it down to using a 1, 2 or 3 IR for best results. Obviously there are no rules and you can use what you want, but pres_2 IRs generally will best reflect the true balance of your amp head settings.

    Another tip is don't run a tube screamer plug before the TS impulses, or LePou's Legion plug-in (it has a built in TS I believe). However, you might want to try a tube screamer plug-in before using the non-TS impulses to tighten them up. :)

    I have access to tonnes of great gear, the problem is the cost of renting the microphones is not even close to being offset by donations. Total cost of this whole project so far is about $180 (mic rentals, buying voxengo deconvolver, etc), total donations is literally $12 total from two people, haha.

    Do you have access to a MF280 cab ? That would make me donate for sure and be something not as run of the mill as a mesa cab impulse. (Yours are good, no problem, issue is, you have so many mesa and 1960 impulses around few people are going to get interested)

    I think you're probably right, however we're talking 40+ hours of work to find out, haha. If I recuperate my costs I'll definitely look at some more exotic cabs.

    Someone did just donate $25 though, which is awesome!

    Aw man, MD421 IRs, thank you so much! Currently my favorite mic, so I'm very happy to see this. I'll try them out in my next mix.

    I'm working on some pre-pro for a local band, and I'm using God's Cab for all of it. Programmed drums.

    This is pretty early on - Not even done all the tracking yet. I'll post updates as it gets refined.

    Mesa Dual Rec Roadster --> Weber Mass 200 attenuator --> Weber Mass 200 line out --> mixer --> gods cab (all SM7B irs in edge position right now).
