Dumped the processor and got some killer tone here. Noise Suppresor works nice. Rare 80's delay is sweet. Some nice toys and hoping for an EVH phase for xmas. 1 problem is the line out records kinda funky so a may look into getting a microphone and if anyone out there can reccommend how i should mike this amp as in how do i get a good microphone and run it through my line in on my soundblaster soundcard..thanks

Yeah, line-outs always sound like crap. You need some kind of cabinet simulator for that to sound good. A POD type product will do this quite nicely. There are a few other products out there as well, but I'm not familiar with them at all.

Otherwise, mic-wise, you can't go wrong with a Shure SM57. As far as placement...I like to put mine in front of the speaker :grin:

EDIT: also - your noise gate will work better at the END of your effects chain.

thats what i thought but there was alot of noise and now its perfect....i dont know about these boss pedals but it seems order goes against some rules....the board at Guitar center that has every pedal on it starts with the "Noise suppressor"

Hey Joe. their thought on the noise suppressor first was to get as clean of a signal as possible before "processing" it. if you put at the end, it may clip some of the signal and remove effects. It thinks they are noise not a signal.

I do have to agree on the SM57. thats the best instrument recording mic I know of.. We sell tons of them at the shop.

I would try it on the lower right speaker. directly in front of the cone. . or just below center and to the right of that speaker.
That usually has good results.

Steve Stevens is the man. I met him this summer at a guitar workshop in LA. Nicest guy in the world, helluva guitarist too. He brought his nylon string acoustic and his HOT girlfriend.

I used to have the same situation Axe....where I had about 12 boss pedals. I also agree that the Noise gate works best as the first one.....or there is a way to use the loop in that pedal what also works well....grab the manual on line and check it out.

Another thing that might work well for you is to break them up...into 2 chains. Put the Morleys first, then the NS-2, then any distortions, OD's or phasers etc in front of the amp. Next in the effects loop between the JSX's pre and power amp....add any delays or reberb, EQ's, BBE's etc....anything that colors the post distorted sound. That way you can use the distortion of your JSX only or the boss pedals, or sometimes both. I'll bet if you try it like that...you will leave it that way.

What are you plugging that SM57 into? Straight into the soundcard? If so you will get a way better reproducton of your rig's live sound if you get a good preamp...or better yet, one with a built in DAC.....such as a Firewire 410 (about $250 used)....if you are recording with a PC. If you are recording with a digital recorder that has XLR inputs...you just need a regular mic preamp like J-mart uses which cost about $130..... the Behringer tube ultragain T1953.

Cool rig and fun to play with......I finally gave up, sold everything, and now just have a Vetta and Bad Horsie...still keep a BBE in the loop and a firewire 410 between it and the PC. It's just so much faster and easier....as well as cheaper to record in stereo....and I don't use mics.
