    I'm reading it now, that is phenomenal. Stuff I don't know mixed in with stuff I already know, it's fascinating, well written and in-depth.

    Talk about re-writing the book!

    Very first link didn't work here either.

    The guide seems to be invaluable. Thank you.

    Even though I've had 2 bean units that failed/returned with the first two weeks, something like this makes me wanna roll the dice yet again.

    Not sure if that qualifies as crazy/stupid/both.

    i have been checking the studio EQ out because most of us claim it isn't a shelf. reading the effects model gallery, it seems that the studio EQ is of a constant Q, so i reckon it can't be a shelf type of EQ. looks like the only shelfing EQs are the parametric and mid focus. can anyone confirm?

    These tones have been the BEST starting point tones for me, so far! I have only needed to add some gain to tast. The use of the multi EQ's seems to be on the right track.

    THANKS!

    Very cool indeed. Can't say I agree with everything ("I’ll almost always use 1-3 Parametric EQ’s on all my patches" wha??), but lots of useful info for sure.

    haha not sure if you've had experience with mixing and mastering tracks with DAWs on computers, but i guess he's saying this from an audio engineer's point of view. when i do simple mastering works on my video camera's audio and h4n, i'll usually fire up my fruity parametric eq into the signal chain, but the only difference is that it has 7 totally flexible controllable EQ instead of 2 peaks and 2 shelfs.

    it looks something like this:
    http://flstudio.image-line.com/help/html/plugins/Fruity Parametric EQ 2.htm

    and they do wonders to the tone. from subtle effects like reducing aural fatigue, to exaggerated mid cuts, irritating frequency remover etc. so i totally get where he is coming from. i have a feeling many professional audio engineers are doing that to their guitarists tone post recording to create space for the rest of the band too. i've been trying to read up more and have been trying to implement it but i've only gotten limited success with the pod because it never occurred to me that i could use more parametric effects in my unused effect slots. now i do! :bonk

    Question on the plug in EQ below.

    Can I use that with a modeler in real time ?

    I use s gear and would like to apply this as I play , as opposed to after it is recorded ? I am relatively new to this EQ concept, so please excuse my newbie ness !

    Thanks

    you can most certainly use VST plugins in real time with the aid of a laptop DAW with some ASIO drivers and connectivity hardware interface. in such a case, your laptop becomes a "pedal board", but the number of VST plugins you can run before lag starts to be significant is determined by the specs of said laptop DAW. for a few effects like the parametric EQ, shouldn't be a problem!

    Its not a claim, its a fact. the studio EQ is based on the API 550B rackmount eq.

    http://apia2d.com/550b.html

    The real one offers 4 bands of semi parametric EQ. the hi and lo bands are switchable between peak and shelf.

    L6 offers a limited version featuring just the 2 middle bands of semi parametric EQ. These are peaking EQ's not shelves.

    thanks for confirming. so it seems there's slight misinformation in the above mentioned article.
