    Kind of, the idea is if you reamp these DI signals, you can hear the 'guitar' and pickups through your own rig.

    I really enjoyed doing these recordings. Check out how tight DiMarzio Virtual PAF is. My favorite ones are MCP Solutions anyway :)

    thanks for these Joao, incidentally what do you think to the X2N? I had one in a 6 string strat rip off for a while and although the bottom end was huge, it was a bit brittle in the highs

    I have always heard about it being overkill, that it doesn't clean and such, and now I'm pretty sure all of these statements are true. Even with a really low gain setting, X2N distorts. If it's a good or bad thing, well, it's up to you.

    Personally I liked it for heavy sounds only, definitely not an overall pickup. It does have a huge bottom end indeed, but doesn't cut through good enough. There are far better options around when it comes to extreme output, like the BKP Warpig.

    This thread's getting pretty cool!

    I'll be adding Crunch Lab, Liquifire, Mo'Joe, PAF Joe, and possibly the Fender pickups in my strat tomorrow hopefully.

    Yeah, I should!

    EDIT: Done, I'll keep putting members' contributions in the OP until it gets a bit excessive then I'll start just listing them by brand and model with a link to the post here they are taken from for more info. EVERYONE will be credited for their contributions in the OP next to the clip, and I've repped everyone who's contributed thus far :)

    I'll get the other one this weekend as this is just an awesome idea for us to have. Playing regardless it is like a mini demo spot.

    I'll be able to get DI's of my Evolution neck pickup and my Seymour Duncan SH5 bridge pickup soon.
    Its in a Michael Kelly Patriot Custom guitar.
    After that i'll get you a DI of the Evolution 7 bridge and Liquifire 7 neck in an alder body guitar with maple neck.

    Hey guys, my DIs are done. I've kept it very simple just palm mutes and open power chords. Can someone instruct me on how to upload them?

    Get a soundcloud account and link it to here :)

    Look forward to it, keep 'em coming folks. Unfortunately I can't edit the OP further, I'll see if a mod can.

    Another good way is using Dropbox (which serves for A LOT of other useful stuff). You can create an account following my referral link: http://db.tt/HcP2pgo
