I ended up returning the Tonex Pedal. Just dropped it off with FedEx today after doing some recording with it in Protools.
In every way the QC is better. I did not like the Joe Bonamassa Captures.
It’s crazy how the QC capture of the Tonex Captures sounded so much bettee, and I have some other good ones that I will make some really usable presets with the folllowing scenes… Clean, Edge if Grit, Crunch, lead, and shimmer…
I did- it was only the combo capture and a plate rev, right?
Very well-balanced, good level. Nice upper mid-gain flavor. I liked it.
Shot it out against the Live Ready Sound caps of a real Matchless HC30 head, but it’s hard to quantify against a baked-in cab. I like full-rig caps, they really feel and sound accurate to me.
Thanks again for sharing it!
Ah, ooops. That 'splains it.
Now I’ve tried the REAL one, yeah- it’s good!
I like the glassy cleans and biting mids. You use the Anti-Shimmer trick I prefer with the Shimmer verb. Nice to see someone else going down am octave instead of up.
It does sound pretty great overall!
One question- why the simple gate block instead of the built-in one in the input block?
This happens with any modeler or amp. You have to plug the cable into a guitar to stop the buzz. Neutrik also makes silent plugs that remove the noise and gets rid of the crackling when plugging into a guitar.
reading the manual can be quite a revelation! Still, this is a good place to ask questions.
I get noise like that too, it’s the nature of the grounding situation. Once you’re plugged in and up and going it should go away though.
Keep in mind single-coil p’ups can introduce a lot of extra noise in an environment where you have lots of electronics or fluorescent lights around you. Have you experimented w/ singles vs humbuckers to see if your noise levels differ?
