And what is your favorite cab(s)?
It's Till's Cablab 017.
Cablab has loads of cabs with each a different flavor.
(If you don't wanna spend a lot of money on profiles, then buy Cablab and enjoy the amp-part of the free profiles)
When I start testing the amp profiles (on power amp ) I eq because there are frequencies that bury the essential tones of an amp/cab. I hipass at around 100 hrz, this clears up a lot. Lowpass at 6000 hrz to get rid of some fizz without muffling the sound. Than it will sound boxy and nasal. Take around 300 hrz, normal q-factor and dip this lowmid by 7 or 8 db, after this it will sound heavy but still open, more expensive. And you will have lots more space for other instruments in the overal sound, guitars and other instruments will be easy mixing in.
I now have the Monitor Out EQ neutral, and the EQ on the Main Out Bass -2.3, Middle +0.5, Treble - 0.6, Presence -1.3 (reverse smiley). But my monitors are KRK RP8 with don't have a lot of Mid. Later today I will try it on a small PA system, see how the EQ on the Main Out will change.
But all this are my 2 cents, this works for me as e metal guy .
I went to see the Poodles in Osnabruck last weekend (one of my wife's favorite).
Guitarist playing a Gibby and Marshall JVM410H on Marshall 4x12. He had problems with the miked speaker, so during the show they flipped the mike over to another speaker. Although the show was great, the guitar sound stayed very muffled and the low-end palmmute peaks were pushing other instruments away at some point. If only more people were into the Kemper thingy.
