Quick recording of my Ibanez:

So here it is:

It's a quick recording of my Ibanez Arondite ADD120. The description on soundcloud gives the gist of it.

Basically, picking the open strings, and adjusting the tone knob a bit. First time around is completely clean, DI into the DAW, no FX, no VST.

Second time around, I use GreenMachineII, and the preset, "Brit Grit."

The pick I'm using is a fender cellulite medium thickness. (.88mm)

Oh, and I think the selector was on 3 when I started, but I moved it to the middle before the last strum.

Well, you can certainly tell the difference. :-)

I like the brit sound, a little grit and dirt, nice! Clean is sounds pretty full and decent for what I suspect is a direct sound.

Well done!

Yep! DI going in through my Mackie Onyx 1620i with the hi-z button engaged, straight into the DAW.

Honestly, on the amp sim, I think I'd back off some of the grit, maybe lower the gain or the drive a little to smooth out some of the harshness, and warm up the sound a bit. The tone I liked the best was the last couple strums on the clean portion. (about 33s to 40s)

At some point, when I get proficient enough to actually play enough to record some stuff, I'll probably start designing a sound from scratch. :)

One can never have too much grit.

I gotta clean up the forums use of soundcloud, it's a little cludgy...but thanks, it is nice having it right here for listening, not having to click off someplace else.
