No. I haven't mustered up the strength yet to attempt the process again. My blood pressure is just now settling back in the normal range from my last try.Did you give the editor a try yet? It allows a lot more tweaking.
You make a very good point though and it is great advice.
This says a lot about my thought on that:
I want to first feel the way GK does about one of the two.Got my THR-10X today. So I've now had experience with all 3.
The 10X is the first amp, out of any amps I've ever owned... that I leveled out the EQ, turned off all FX, gain to 3/4, Brown I or II (both are tits) and all of my guitars sounded sublime, to my ears. Didn't need to adjust a single thing. Everything I played, sounded like "that tone", I've wanted all these years.
Did I sound like EVH? Hell no. Did I sound like I'd picked up EVH's rig and started playing it. Hell yeah! I don't care if its someone else's tone. Its a brilliant, ground-shaking, bone-rattling tone. Guys have been after that sound for decades and it sounds a bit different with everyone that gets it... but finally... ITS MINE!!!
I even love all the other channels, Power I, II and Southern Hi.
Why in Hades, couldn't I have had this when I was 13, instead of 48!?
It cleans up just fine for me. Humbuckers, sound nice and full on the clean channel, you can EQ it and add effects. That's ALL I will EVER need out of a clean channel on an amp. Turn of the knob, little delay, little reverb, neck pickup and The Rain Song never sounded better.
I want to be thrilled "as is" first.
After that, then the editing really would be icing on the cake.
The editing option leads me to think the C was probably the right choice.
I'm betting adding dirt is easier than adding clean.
Today was slated as the magic day off to figure it out.
I ended up with a 9:30, an 11:30 and a 3:30 so I'd have to say so far it's not going as planned! We'll see.
