    DiMarzio D-Activator Noise Quesiton

    Hi lewis, I'm using POD HD300 as effects board and no other analog pedals. Also Fostex MKII reference monitors together with a PC. My Gain is set around 25% (I know this is too low but I do quad-tracking + use IRs) Thanks a lot!!

    Is anyone else a neck pick up person?

    For shredding & a bit more technical solos that involves lots of string skipping&legato etc in the higher regions, I typically use neck. This gives more "definition" and a smoother/creamy, even sound on higher speeds. To get enough clarity and the most out of low-end definition, I use bridge...

    DiMarzio D-Activator Noise Quesiton

    Hi, I have an Ibanez XPT700 with stock pickups of DiMarzio D-Activator. While recording at home, I observed that the pickups pick too much noise like fizz, hum, hiss and so... probably related to grounding issues. That's why I heavily use noise reduction (NOT NOISE GATE!) with a setting...

    How to shape "that" tone for recording?

    Hi TedEH, Thanks a lot for taking your time and answering. Indeed most of those choices are a matter of taste as you've also mentioned within your replies. I'm not used to use compression with distorted guitars either, but, can you also have a look at the 6th question that I've added...

    How to shape "that" tone for recording?

    cGoEcYk, Thank you for fast response. I'm not linked to any bands for now on and it completely depends on my choices. I have fair idea of the mixing process and already achieved some good results with hearable instruments sitting on their respective seats in EQ spectrum. Actually I use...

    How to shape "that" tone for recording?

    Hi, This is the first time ever I'm posting on this forum. I've been playing guitar for 4,5 years. I've played in several live shows and in the studio. I could manage to get decent tones for a live performance just instinctively. Now I'm focused more on recording my own stuff. I've almost...
