    So I haven’t recorded in 8 years, been awhile and the recent lockdown got me motivated along with this forum. A lot of cool tunes coming out from y’all.
    So I used a Setzer Hot Rod for the main guitar parts and the 5420 w/ T-Armonds for the lead and ambient guitar parts.

    Plugged into the Mystery Brain with Abby mode on, then depending which guitar part, the ubangi or fluid drive. Home built Super Reverb kit into a Fryette PS2 as a dummy load, into the Two Notes Torpedo CAB speaker simulator, into ProTools. No miked speakers on this one. Wanted to try out the speaker simulator. Thanks

    I like the song :)

    How did the cab sim compare against mic'ing in your opinion?

    Thanks and It’s funny you ask. I literally have not recorded or mic’d a speaker in 8ish years! So it’s hard to compare. I’ll probably mic a cab for one of the guitar parts for this song and compare.

    So far I’m pretty satisfied with the Two Notes unit.

    I gotta say I’m very impressed with the Two Notes Torpedo cab sim vs a mic’d amp. A mic’d amp with its speakers has more potential but honestly with a family and night time recording, I’m stoked with this thing.

    Final version with speaker cab sim

    This version below is the same song, but this time I mic’d the Super Reverb with an sm57, Mystery Brain, Ubangi and Fluid Drive. The two versions are very close.
