They got this grating exaggerated pick attack to them. I recorded a quick clip, you can hear the DiMarzio Dreamcatcher bridge pickup has a solid even tone and you hear the pick squeak of the Quantum neck.
It doesn't sound all that bad, but to me it need replacing.
Exactly, OP didn't say when. And listening to old tracks live, any delay would be from FOH. IIRC, he had a bit of an epiphany with the w/d/w stuff, as he never got delay in front to sound like he wanted to.
The EVH 5150 50w has a headphone output with rudimentary speaker simulation you can use silently btw.
I used a Suhr Reactive load with my EVH when I had it, for recording mainly, I'm not a fan of guitars and headphones. I listen through studio monitors.
You'll never get a "quality headphone experience". with a load straight to headphones really, if you can swing a Captor X you can just as well buy a Line 6 POD Go, which will be much more satisfying for headphone practise IMO.
This will depend on the level you send from the Suhr Load, for best signal to noise ratio, set the level as hot as you can without clipping the inputs on the effects downstream, and that sets the max for what you power amps have to work with.. :)
Thanks for asking, now I learned how :p
You can just use Quicktime, I just tried and it works!
The audio from my guitar can out a little lopsided to the left , but I'm sure that's just a setting I need to fix.
Just scroll down to "use Quicktime"
You will be surprised how fun it is, even the little Peavey will make it sound huge! :)
Also using the line-out box is better than splitting from the preamp send, you'll get the whole tone of your amp with the line solution, much better.
