Just got an OCD (v2) - thanks Dot!! It's awesome. Very versatile and easily more "open" sounding than ANY of the Xotics! Plus, (as reported here) more gain than the BB - which very cool for my purposes/rig. The "open" quality I hear is GREAT in my studio setting, but since I am not performing live at this time, I have to ask: how well does the OCD stand out in a band mix? Does it's big, open characteristics translate well to the stage?
