I like the larger monitor reco as well.
Think about your current workflow - what are you spending more time doing, which could be reduced:
- fiddling with mix decisions, then monitors or headphones.
- latency issues? Then your interface.
- pecking out keyboard parts or drum edits on the midi...
At 6:55 in this video, there’s a great walk-trough on how to toggle a parameter for Reverb mix from 30% to 80%.
Is it possible to toggle in this way, but to change two parameters - Mix AND Decay? I’d like to go from a fairly standard reverb to an ambient verb, using the same HX Stomp reverb...
#1 - No, I’d suggest building presets based on unity gain, setting the volume knob so the signal is the same when the Stomp is bypassed and when individual blocks are bypassed (except for blocks intended to boost volume).
#2 / #3 - Sorry, can’t help w these as I don’t use an effects loop.
Well it’s a single coil in the bridge, so inconsistent with each of the bands mentioned.
But, Tom Morello plays a single-coil tele primarily and gets plenty of ‘grunt’.
So, I think it comes down to whether or not you like it.
Respectfully, the issue with your posts isn’t wording, it’s that opinion is being put forward as fact.
Perfectly acceptable to have strong opinions (most of us here do), but stating as fact is likely to ruffle some feathers.
I’m admittedly a Collings fan, and have purchased and kept 4 models...
