The high end is sitting right where it should, but the low end channel is a little higher than it will be in the final mix. But you get the idea of the sound I'm getting with it.
So I split the DI over two channels. The first is going through an Ampeg SVT sim, scooped lower mids, boosted upper mids and relaxed treble. Enough to get the "zing" in the tone but not the harsh fret clank.
The high end is going through a ton of crap. Firstly an EQ to dump everything below 400hz~, then a sansamp as a boost, into a plug in called Juicy77 (a pretty basic all round preamp), bass rolled right off, mids kept fairly high and the highs taken down to reduce hiss. The idea is to get a mid-centric distortion.
This goes into a speaker impulse I made of the Orange 4x12 I track all my guitars through. This is the secret sauce to get it to blend - use the same cab as your guitars. Makes it sit right in the pocket.
That's then hi-passed/lo-passed at around 700hz and 5khz respectively and blended with the low end channel to taste.
