This example does sound like the Lead channel, with an FX loop kicker, containing Distortion+, and quite possibly some Mutron Octave. Definitely a "different" quality to the overdrive before he kicks in the loop at measure 5, and then hot filth afterwards.

jeffm725 wrote:Another intersting thing and this is why I posted this and opened it for debate and disussion, is that I DONT hear the Mutron octave at all. I didnt at first and now even though that both TS and Chuckles (and I fully repect both your ears/opinions) mentioned it so now I am listening hard for it, I still dont hear it.
Now for the next thing I want everyone to listen for. Listen to the very beginning of the clip when he is still singing the chorus. It is fairly clean, no? Certainly nowhere near the grit of dist part a and dist part b to be found later in the clip. The thing that baffles me is that you dont really hear the change (eg, stomping on a switch, or thrwoing the OBEL switch) to bring that first part of the grit in. Is he simply already on the dirty channel and just bringing up the guitar volume gave him the change in drive?

stereo outputs,effects loops, recording out that can go straight to the board if you like.
Got mine for $500 on Ebay. Mate it with a Mesa 20/20 50/50 Simulclass 400 or the Mac of your choice. Pretty much nutn does what the Quad can do, and you can get one like I said for about $500.
Under rated and neglected tone monster! From clean fender to wild as you want with the tap of the foot switch. I will try not to repeat this again, but the Quad is an awesome preamp.
Also worth mentioning although I do not have one is the Mesa Studio Preamp. It is like half of a quad.
