Alright, my recorded tone sounds like crap. Nothing at all like what I'm hearing in the room. The rig is Custom Telecaster w/ SD stacked humbucker -> Zvex Box of Rock -> Orange Rocker 30 (Natural Channel) -> SM57 -> M Audio Mobile Pre -> Cubase http://soundclick.com/share?songid=6394631 This is with the SM57 about an inch and a half away from the grill and 3 inches left of the dust cap. I've tried it all over the place and this is the best result I've been able to get. It still doesn't really sound anything like what I'm hearing in the room. Cleans sound decent, I guess, but once the distortion kicks in it's just terrible. Loose, thin, buzzy, blah. The gain is not up very high at all...maybe 12:00. All parts here are doubletracked. It's an Orange Rocker 30 with a Zvex Box of Rock in front of it. Both are pretty notorious for huge bass response. There's definitely a ton of bass, it's just not coming through. My problem isn't that it doesn't as good as it possibly could, it's just that it doesn't sound a thing like what's in the room. I know I could make it sound better with another mic farther back, different pre-amp, etc, but there's no reason at all that I shouldn't be able to get a reasonably good sound out of this set up. Any help would be appreciated.
