Killswitch Engage - A Bid Farewell. The microphone is running into an inline Audio Technica Microphone Low-to-High Impedance-Matching Transformer: XLR -> 1/4 inch male out running into a POD XT set to not affect the sound at all. No amp sim, no cab sim, no noise gate, no reverb, nothing at all. The POD XT PRO is using the MS-DIAMONDPLATE model (Number 46) with only the amp enabled. No EQ, no boost, no delay, no reverb, no cab sim. Nothing other than amp sim. The 2:100 is set to modern mode and i'm NOT using the RECTIFIER PREAMP inputs. Volume is set around 4.5 out of 10 and presence turned all the way down. XT PRO output volume is about 85%. Built a blanket/towel box all around the microphone. Close mic'd. Tracks were not EQ'd in any way. Recording is as it was recorded.
