    I got a chance to record a bit of audio today. Direct in Mesa Mark V -> SM57 -> PC (dry).

    First up, lots of gain (as requested). I'm not much of a metal player and don't really know what to go for here. Could be a little tighter in the bottom end (did I just say that?)...

    Second up, a bit of funk influenced clean stuff, going through the main pickup options. Which are:

    Neck HB then split, Neck/Middle HB then split, Neck/Bridge HB then split, Middle/Bridge HB then split, Bridge HB then split, all 3 HB then split.

    Here's links to the original threads if you missed it, but basically a PTC modified DC3 with 3 x narrow 408s:

    I'll post some more stuff when I get a chance, some dirty rhythm and solo stuff plus any requests :)

    Wow thanks for all the nice comments guys! I got a chance to do a little more today, again lots of gain but this time a quick blues type lick. Trying to demonstrate how even with lots of gain, there's clarity, as well as tonal variety, even going from HB to single coil.

    Same as before: Neck HB then split, Neck/Middle HB then split, Neck/Bridge HB then split, Middle/Bridge HB then split, Bridge HB then split, all 3 HB then split.

    The bridge pickup rips IMO!

    I tried to do more and then the baby needed to sleep... If I don't get a chance to do any more today I won't be able to touch it again for 2.5 weeks (holiday, exams etc). Still need to do some crunchy rhythm, maybe some clean ringing open chords and some mindless noodling...

    OK here's the last one for quite a while, some mindless noodling:

    https://soundcloud.com/justmund/noodle

    The loop is slightly out of sync, it's cut and pasted (slightly less clams that way), same settings as before. I'll admit I haven't got much experience with audio software, something I intend to change over the next couple of years! Very confronting listening to yourself... "yup there's that same lick again... and again...".

    Sounds great!
    The one in post 8 reminds me of a Hendrix tone.

    I've been a huge fan of the neck/middle Strat sound, except for trying to sit way back in a mix. That combo demo on your 624, but in full humbucker is great! Quacky, but full and musical. Dig it!

    Great playing and good demos! Thanks!

    Oh yeah, I AM TOTALLY STEALING THIS MOD!

    Sounds great man! Love all the tones really. That heavy blues lick is nice and Hendrixy.

    Do you every get confused to which settings are activated?
