    Hi guys

    Ive been recording with a lot less gain lately and feel it has helped improve my overall mix.

    Let me know what you think.

    Down the gain, up the volume has been my moto for a while now...

    Sounds pretty cool and punchy.

    In other news: Water is wet! :cool:

    No but seriously. Sounding pretty meat. Now try getting your bass tone bigger and watch people uncontrollably .... themselves.

    I've recently found that backing off a bit of the volume pot got rid of a lot of the annoying crap that I had going on with my EMGs.

    By the way, it would be really awesome if you could post the stem tracks. Why? Because I, personally, would like to give my HD500 a try on this one in particular, so would the others as well I supose. A little bit of mixing practice if nothing : )

    What does bringing up the volume helps with? Power amp distortion and compression?
