tried a limiter this time in mastering in an attempt to tame the speaker distortion - still sounds a little off from in person. may be because of the 3 band compressor that's still turned on in mastering. still learning - anyways this is the lead channel with a set of blackouts in a mahogany guitar. near the end around 3:00 i think i switched it back over to the crunch channel just to compare but the gain was still kind of high on crunch.
master volume here is only at 5, which is just opening up, channel volumes at 5, and the gain on lead is 5, crunch is just over 6.
