So I tried something today... And it is pretty damn glorious.
My setup has been Roadster/GMaj2. Today I brought home an old friend from my drummer's place, just for shits and giggles. It's been sitting there collecting dust since I got the Roadster. In my hangover, while helping Drew pack his gear up from last night's jamming, I had an idea...
Didn't expect it to work out, purely out of boredom...
So.. Yeah. In the loop, using only the effects (no preamp/distortion/etc), with the 808 in front of it all?
It's my old effects and patches, with all the tube goodness of the Roadster. It doesn't color the tone at all, no volume differences, perfectly clean everywhere, and it SLAYS. Going to fuck around for a day or two, and then I think the GMaj2 might be up for sale.
I knew you'd come around to the Tubescreamer thing.
That's awesome though... glad the old friend has a home in the new rig!
Now you need a ridiculous MIDI setup to change patches
