It says that you have to download Pando in order to hear your clips...
You might want to set up a Soundclick account.. it's a really easy way
to post & share clips without the person reading the thread having to
download a program to hear 'em .. check it out .. it's very cool!

I'm with Joseph. Probably a better move.

I wanted to check it but don't want to download Panda. Got enough players I really don't need more.

Nice stuff Ben, but please normalize the volume. The clips are really really low.....

Enjoyed them thanks for the extra effort in getting them on Soundclick.

particuarly liked

"Fuchs CH1 RC, BB Xotic Guitar XS-4"
"Fuchs TDS CH1 RC Xotic XS-4"

Was the last track recorded with the Zoom too?

Would you say that what you recorded is close to what you heard in person. i.e did you lose any top end - does it sound darker on the recordings than it did live?

I've only had it for about a week, so still working out the bugs. Not sure why the volume is not up there. Will work on it more.

Everything was recorded with the Zoom. At first I positioned it about 3 or 4 inches from the speaker and it gated everything but the notes. All the pick scrapes and things were not captured. When I recorded these I put it about at a 90 degree angle to the cab, approx 18-20" away, and recorded it in stereo using the front and back mics. I'm catching the natural reverb off the garage as well which is nice, but that may be the cause for the volume drop.

I would say that the recording is just about dead on to what you hear live. I think it captures the TDS's qualities pretty nicely. The head is matched with 4x10 jenson's wired with Kimber Cables. I truly believe they've added additional warmth.

Thanks for answering that.

I lose top end on my M-audio recordings so this is useful to know. Pretty sure it's the mic, but that's twice I've heard the inbuilt mics on the zoom now and both times responses were favourable.

Nice one,
