Dude, it was into the clean channel...
the tight swith makes sense but the pedal doesn't work well at all with the PD.
whats that got to do with anything? lol
This would sound emphatically better in the Satans efx loop than it would this tremoverb thing and using the 33 instead would have been cool to see.
Why is a Satan's power amp better than a Rectifier's power amp?
>using a satan with a boost based off a djent preamp into another djent preamp
I’d like to see him do a video of it into the fx return of the Satan since that’s how he demo’d the Revv G3, and I’m interested in how those compare. The Revv sounded very good.
It was into the effects loop towards the end
He did. Watch trough the whole video and he switches to effects loop towards the end
I think he means through the FX loop of the same amp as the Revv went through, which was the Satan. Which is a fair request I suppose.
Oh. Well, it’s close enough to tell if you want the pedal or not imo
"The Apex and PD suck together"
after hearing one guy pair them not even tweaking them and with the PD volume on 10 and the mids completely scooped on the Apex
Of course it will sound like ass (imo).
I think the Apex sounds sick and I'm curious to hear the sweep of the cab sim knob. I think this and the PD as a pair can be a swiss knife of gain sounds.
Why does everything from Ola lately sound scratchy in general, and weird when it sustains? The G3 for instance, when he plays a chord and lets it sustain, doesn't sound too open in the high end. I don't check out everything he posts, but the past couple videos (G3, Apex) have this quality to them.
And why stop there? I need to hear this pedal through the Diezel Herbert clean channel! Showdown time! HD preamp through the Ultra-lead clean channel vs. HD preamp through the Engl SE clean channel vs. HD preamp through the 5150 clean channel vs. HD preamp through the JCM800 clean channel.
If you have some high gain monster amp, stop looking at a preamp pedal and just learn how to use an EQ pedal. You will be better off for it.
I'm curious as well as to why he didn't try the cab sim knob at different levels just to see what it does.
Not only that but apparently, $299 is just the "pre-order" price. After the release date, it goes up to $320. Pretty steep compared to other pedals in that price range like the Empress Heavy, Tightmetal that offer more features like onboard boost, more sophisticated eq, etc..
Yeah exactly this, like obviously everyone has different uses for different pieces of gear.... but I feel like pedals like this are meant to provide the sound of a big fire breather of an amp in a more affordable/portable.
But I guess the thing is to have every djent gear there is. need to run the PD into the APEX into fx loop of invective. I just hope these pedals come in satin finishes.

Damn, there's more than 8 tone cylinders in there!
sevenstring gonna sevenstring
Thanks guys for letting me know that a simple request (not demand!) for comparisons of preamps using similar poweramps from a guy who does lots of gear demos, is just an unreasonable request.
My replies were more pointed toward @lewis and his weird notion that a random Randall poweramp is going to create an "emphatically better" sound than a Mesa poweramp. I feel like that'd be in the running for bonkers comment of the year. Like Mesa -- who are they even? How long have they even been making poweramps?
We'll get a slight hint of EL-34 vs 6L6 in that comparison, and that's about it. And why? To inform people which $1500-$2000 high gain amp to buy in order to get the best sound from a $300 pedal, completely circumventing the entire reason you buy the high-gain amp in the first place. Yea dude, I don't think that's an unreasonable request, but it is a pretty bonkers one.
The tone's supposed to come primarily from the pedal. That's why there's even a cab sim.
