Thank you, Hays!
I can't remember who it was that shared the settings, but it was someone playing a Satriani cover and the wah sounded exactly like what I was missing.
I remember it well, Sammy, 'cause I felt the same way, which is why I asked his permission to share the settings.
As promised, here are the Wah parameters :
Pedal range +37%
peak range -43%
drog , Sam used the preset as-is, but added "+0.7" to the existing no-change Volume parameter ("0.0").
Maybe Monkey_Man can add those wah settings to the community page. Maybe list it as a Satriani type wah ? Thanks for the settings sambrox
It's already there, drog, and I called it "Nick Badr - Smth" (meaning smooth), consistent with the naming convention I've used.
The "Editor's Note" clearly explains the circumstances and links to the video that inspired Sam and me (and I'm sure others):
Nicolas posted a clip of his playing Joe Satriani's Love Thing with his preferred (for this song) flavour of Cry Baby Wah. I was impressed with its smoothness, and Nico very-kindly agreed to share it upon my request. You can view the clip and thread Here. He says that the signal chain used in the clip was Comp--->Boost--->WAH.
I'm out of ideas except for the possibilities that:
1) You've connected the front USB port on your Profiler instead of the rear one - Rack users have done this in the past.
2) The installed copy of RM isn't compatible with the OS version on your Profiler - check the documentation.
3) It's an anomaly similar to what some others have experienced recently. Check the Rig Manager subforum (this is the wrong one, technically) to see if it's been solved.
If you still have no luck, you could try reverting to earlier, compatible versions of RM and the OS. If you don't still have the installers and support deems this necessary, it'll provide them for you, but I'd first create a ticket and see what they have to say. A link to create a ticket is in my signature.
I see you've created another thread and subsequently solved it, Pierre.
1) Maybe change this thread's title to say the issue's solved. [Solved]
2) You created 2 threads on this in the same subforum. Firstly, no need for two threads, let alone in the same subforum. Secondly, I've wasted some of my limited online time today scratching my head and providing possible solutions for you when all along you'd solved this 7 hours ago. This sort of thing is precisely why it's "inconsiderate" to create multiple threads on the same topic, especially when troubleshooting.
Sounds like you haven't specified your "Profiler name" in RM's preferences, Pierre.
Make sure you match, character-for-character, the name you've entered in your Profiler's System menu with the one you enter in RM's preferences. This is necessary or it won't be recognised no matter what you do.
Bear in mind that if at any time you change this name, you'll lose any "favourites" tagging you've done in the app. Reverting the name to what you had previously will restore these favourites.
Your lead break's the highlight for me as usual, Ceddy.
Well-written, and so glad you feel they did the song justice, man.
Great story, JR. Glad it went well, mate.
My only gripe is that I need to tweak my wah sound a bit, as it was not really to my liking.
Try the community's wah collection (link in my sig) and see how you go, mate, before creating a potential headache from editing.
Even if you only find a jump-off point, it might still be the way to go.
Definitely dial the gain back for the rhythm parts at least.
They sound "congested" to me, and the solution could be to dial the mids back slightly as well as the gain and play "harder". Also, you could try trickling a little bit of direct-guitar signal through... IMHO.
Well done, man.
Welcome and congrats from a fellow bass player, Fidel.
Am I correct in my understanding that simply adding a TS to XLR adapter to the unbalanced Monitor Output won’t suddenly create a second in phase signal to boost the level by approx 6db and equal the level of a balanced source with the same send level?
I believe so, Brother Alan.
You can split a signal as many times as you like but recombining the components will never create an increase in strength; that'd be perpetual-motion-machine stuff.
Using a TRS to XLR from the Main outs should be the same volume as an XLR to XLR from the main outs as the output is balanced in both cases.
Actually it's not, Alan:
All units except for Stage
Main & Monitor TS - Unbalanced, +16 dBu max
Main XLR - Balanced, +22 dBu max
Main XLR & TS and Monitor TS are all +15 dBu max.
Thank you for both Rigs, Damian!
The best, and only kosher way, is to contact support, jorisdirks. We end-users aren't supposed to share copies of the firmware.
Not only might there be another way to solve your issues, but if indeed there appears to be no other option but to try reverting, they'll happily send you an appropriate version.
Thank you, Tim!
Thanks dude; very-generous of you.
Excessive-editing time be gone!
