To be honest, I have overlooked the non-brutal modes of the Dual Rectifier for a long time. Here are some examples of that.
The profiles were made with my trusty go-to-chain, which is comprises the Dual Rectifier 3ch, a Rectifier 4x12 with British V30 speakers, mic'd with an SM57 through a BAE 1073MP preamp. No pedals. Power from a Furman power conditioner.
The amp is in Channel 2 (Orange) / Vintage mode.
The profiles can be found on the Rig Exchange by searching for "RiF-DR CH2".
My filename-coding is as follows:
RiF-DR Ch2[mode].[spongy|bold][brightness level 1-3] [speaker] [mic]
Example: "RiF-DR Ch2V.s1 V30 57" = Dual Rec, Channel 2, Vintage, Spongy, Brightness level 1, V30 speaker, SM57 microphone
The brightness level goes from 1-3 , where 2 is what I consider "normal". 1 is darker and 3 is brighter. The difference in brightness is usually achieved by moving the microphone.
There's a "bonus profile" called "RiF-DR CH2M.s1 V30 57" which is Ch2 in Modern mode. This profile is meant to be used with a Tube Screamer type of pedal in front. The profile has the Green Screamer set up and engaged by default, which works pretty good with this profile.
THE SOUND SAMPLES
Here are some short clips. The guitars are louder than in a normal mix so you can hear them clearly. All guitar tracks have been recorded directly from the Kemper's STACK output with no FX applied. Even in Pro Tools they are kept bone dry, no EQ, no reverb, no nothing. WYHIWYG. There's a Waves SSL bus compressor and iZotope Ozone 8's Maximizer (only that module) as a brickwall limiter on the mix bus, that's it.
This tone (especially the darker ones) works very nicely with single coil pickups (see sound clip with "Strat" in the name).
Not that many pictures this time, because they get somehow redundant.
As always, I appreciate any feedback (positive or negative) from you guys!
