    these tones. Let me first say, even though they may NOT be a tone you like, I like the recored tone as well as the "in-room" feel and would like this to translate well to live situations.

    These were captured with my iPhone and Tascam plug in mic.

    This is mic'd with a Sennheiser e609:

    Don't judge my vocals … it's about the tones! There is no real post processing on the studio track ouside a little hi/lo pass.

    I LOVE my Splawn tones and really want them to translate live as accurately as possible. I am looking to use the new 3.0 DI/Merged profile format. I'll use my Splawn 2x12 on stage but direct to FOH.

    A little bottom heavy for live use IMO

    Dial out some low end. Sounds great otherwise

    Sure. Some of that is from the open air recording on the first 2. In the room, it is definitely cutting more. Where I get confused is that a lot of people are feeling like profiles I PERSONALLY find too "boomy" are ideal for running to FOH.

    Thanks for the reply!

    I definitely like the sound. As for stuff being 'boomy' or 'bottom heavy', it all depends on what you're trying to dial in. I compare my patches against my mark v to make sure that they have some girth and cut to them so that I can run them through a powered speaker and it's very amp like. If recording, I just cut back on some of the lows. PA type speakers have the umph to deliver the goods more like a real amp than studio monitors.

    Definitely dug hearing some old kiss riffs! Cool!

    Thanks man! Love me some KISS. I have been posting a lot lately. Just redid "I Stole Your Love" with vocals using some great profiles from V/Rad Studios.

    Anyway, obviously I love my Quick Rod. I dial it in live to have a good bit of cut.
