Mesa Boogie Roadster 2x12, vintage 100W recto tracking (I think). Slight cut on mids and highs, guitar treble turned down a touch. Mic'd close, in-between speakers because I wanted to get more meat. Mix was double tracked (Gtr 1 plays single notes on bass string and Gtr 2 plays power chords), includes drum machine and a 5-string active bass. No boost was used if I remember correctly. The 7-string had super-heavy gauge strings installed, tuned to KoRn (ADGCFAD). Way too boomy, but has basic tone I am going for.
Recorded from Roadster combo with cheap directional Peavey mic, close to grill (mostly on-axis, speaker cone edge center). Drums suck, ignore them. I used Jackson SL3-MG tuned to Drop C (CGCFAD) with super-thick gauge strings installed. The roadster was configured for my favorite tone (vintage, recto tracking, very small mid cut, very small treble cut) and boosted over 12 DB by MXR 10-band EQ, in addition to hot EMGs. The MXR EQ was set to boost around 125-250 Hz (more so 125), cut around 1 - 4 khz (most around 1 khz). 1 hkz through 16 khz ended up looking like checkerboard after I found the sweet setting (subsequent ones cut then boosted then cut then boosted, etc). I am going for my favorite Dope tone, like from Take Your Best Shot.
This is the roadster channel 4 somewhat cranked up with no boost running through the rivera iso box. This is an attempt to EQ out some of the tone weirdness I was hearing. This clip alternates from the tone with no EQ to the tone with a notch filter around 823Hz. The clip starts with the no EQ version and keeps changing to the end.
This is the audix i5 mic pulled back from the speaker as far as it could while still aiming at the speaker. No post EQ or compressor on the guitars. Bass was played through the roadster channel 2 clean.
Seemingly endless futz with different gain, treble, and presence settings to get the sense of hi gain low esc tuning with the silent sister. Master at about 3:00 and gain when at max 12:00 (starts at around 9:00). Maxon 808, 0 overdrive and balance changed throughout the futz. I used 2 SM57s for this recording 1 hard panned to left and 1 to the right. So, you could listen to either mic track.
