    I sometimes had a second OD sitting next to the first. One for rhythm that might have a bit of a bass cut like a tube screamer, and a second for leads with more a flat EQ like a Klone with the Drive set a bit higher.

    Or, yeah, setup the Orange channel for leads, and the Red for rhythms!



    Also, make sure your Output is at least up to 12:00, and use the channel Masters as overall volume control. I think this helps the responsiveness of the amp in general, and helps to make the clean channel actually useable

    I've just arrived at a rehearsal room to put the Triple Rec up against the Mark IV and I think I actually prefer the Triple Rec. The Triple rec needs to be turned up so much more than the Mark IV to get the sweet spot but I'm loving it. Certainly has that pissed off sound I've been after and sounds so much more "bigly" than the Mark IV

    The clean channel on the pushed setting also gives a surprisingly convincing fusion-ish tone.

    Turn up the mark IV to match in volume, else it's not really a 1:1 comparison .

    At full volume, having a band where one player has a Mark and the other has a Rectifier is simply awesome. You get the tight-suddenness of the Mark from one player with the pure aggression and frequency domination from the other with the rectifier. You were talking about lead sounds here, and I have to say that when I was playing in a band with my old triple rec, I used the orange channel in Modern mode with more gain, mids, and bass than my rhythm sound on the red channel. However, recently with my newer Dual Rec in a home-recording setup, I vastly prefer the vintage mode on the orange channel for leads. With the right overdrive in front (I've been using the Tone Sovereign from the HX Stomp for leads) it's a smooth and aggressive lead sound that just plain works.

    Basically I think the theme of this thread is snag a whole bunch of various overdrive pedals and go at it with this amp. It's made to do this and is one of the most fun amps to experiment with because it's just so incredibly versatile with it's 8 modes on the front and the various power options on the back.
