    Thanks. It's a pretty nice clean, i find. I just have to iron out the sharper highs.

    I'm using the zoom h1 digital recorder. It sits on a tripod about a foot away from the 212

    Excellent. It will be the sharper highs that cause a bit of grief I figure, seems to be my problem with most modellers. I'm hoping the PEQ will sort it out.

    Does anyone know if there is a way of using the "mic in" and bypassing all of the amp and fx? I'd like to record a dry vocal and add fx in using SONAR.

    Pretty nice pushed clean tone and the ACDC clip was good as well with not too much OD. For $300, that is a lot of bang for the buck.

    Definitely good value. There's still a lot for me to experiment with - I've been hovering around one or two presets exclusively. They're really nice and right up my alley, so it's hard to leave them and explore.

    Not sure if this will work. We're attempting to learn this song so I've been using it to try and figure out the 11r. Lead vocal, rhythm guitar, and as yet shitty lead guitar are all on the 11r by me. Backing was our other guitar player doing harmony vocal, keys, bass, and a drum machine :) We'll get the drummer over one day, or better yet just record it live if we can figure it out well enough.

    obviously not much time spent mixing it, no point until we're ready and that solo needs A LOT of work.

    I don't know enough about recording to help, and I'm not really familiar with the tune. So you're going right from the 11r into your recording software?

    Yep, haven't started messing around with live sound yet. I'd forgotten how good an interface this was though, I'll be able to clean up my desk a bit.

    To hear it done right here's Paul Carrack, one of my favourite vocalists.

    Maybe I can use it instead of my Roland Duo-Capture. I wonder how Garageband will handle it.

    My concern was that it was originally linked directly to Pro Tools and I used to run both. It synced automatically with Sonar Producer though, took hardly any time to set it up. Most trouble I had was getting the damn stand alone editor working properly :) I can't see why it wouldn't work with Garageband.

    Oh man, I've gotta another clip coming in a few days. I stumbled upon an Eric Johnson preset, and it sounds fantastic. I just gotta figure out this cliffs of dover tune...yikes.

    My sister asked me to learn that song once. She played it and I just gave her "give me 20 years first."

    I imagine GB should be fine for whatever you want to set up.

    Where are you "stumbling" on these presets :)

    It was purely by accident. For some reason, I decided to play a present that didn't sound appealing to me at first. I had no idea that this was set-up to be cliffs of doverish until I played a few octave notes close together.
