Monitor out is for the onstage (1 x 12") cab . Main out goes to the desk and It's a hot signal from the Kemper so that's why it's -20db
For the Monitor out, that varies but it's usually around -5db. Master mono out is -20db
Reminds me of the late great Frank Zappa's doodlings on Hot Ratz (amongst others ...)
Frank was not only a great guitar player, far more than that, he was a great composer too .....
I'd also recommend the Moog EP-3 as a good choice.
With a wider travel it's good for volume and pitch duties. The Mission is great for wah ...
..... and that was Dave Sanbourn intoducing him - if I'm not mistaken .... He's class for sure .....
His band around that time included Marcus, the late Don Grolnick on keys and Steve Gadd
I use the mid setting which works just fine.
I have set any notes that aren't actually needed to 0 for simplicity but you may want to add something to make any slides sound better.)
This is crucial in my opinion otherwise it sounds weird.
By the way, I appreciate all the work that has gone into not only working it out but also transcribing it here ! Well done !
I know from my own experiences of making user scales, it takes a lottttttt of time
For me the Moog EP-3 has a better sweep, adjustable taper control and is considerably cheaper than a Mission.
It feels better for pitch control, too.
The Mission for wah is good as it replicates the Cry Baby pedal
Ah ! I've always to used the Intelligent one that you have to programme each step in (simply because of tunes that don't conform to the norm)
Thanks for pointing that out
Intervals of 3 and 4 semitones I would think .... it's a classic rock cliche.
-3 semitones (minor) and -4 semitones (major) harmonies if you are playing the top line ....
Yes, the only solution as I see it .... butmaybe a reset to default (regardless of pedal position) could be implemented .... or at least to be an option ?
I have my wah pedal assigned to pitch in my system settings. In a performance with 2 rigs, I use the wah (with no pitch activated) in one rig and the wah to pitch in the other (with no wah activated)
When switching between rigs the one with pitch activated seems to always remember the position of where I left the wah in the other rig. Consequently, it always defaults to being either sharp or flat (depending on my assigned pitch)
Is there any way to remedy this whereby changing the rig 'forgets' the pedal's position ?
I use a Palmer Macht 402 power amp . Can be used in bridge mode to give 400w into 8 ohms or stereo 2 x 100w into 8 ohms, 2 x 200w into 4 ohms. Lower power ratings into 16 ohms.
1u rack size and basic teble and bass controls on front panel too .....Not heavy, sounds good and a better option than the Matrix imho
Monitors I have are a 1 X 12"Boogie EVM 12L (200w) and/or Celestion Redback (150w) 1 x 12" cab
Good question ! I'll be looking for an answer, too ......
Have calibrated with the adjustment control full on and rolled back a little - the 'bar' correlates with the pedal's travel ...
I guess it's the value of the pot that must be different - like 70 or 80% of the effect is within the first 25% of the heel to toe movement ....
*Edit* after thinking to take the bottom off and check the value of the pot, I noticed the switch was set to 'Other'
Now set to Standard and all is as it should be
Have always used the Mission ep1-kp to do the Wah and boost and thought it'd be nice to get another for pitch and other duties.
Looking at old threads I noticed the Moog ep-3 was a popular choice so have just got that.
But ! It's nowhere near as smooth a control as the Mission ..... volume swell and pitch control seem to be most active in the first quarter of travel
and adjustment of the pot on the side only extends or rolls back back the maximum .....
I know this is a cheap pedal, and soundly built with a good sweep, but for me the pot taper is not really workable like the Mission ...
Anyone compared the two like this and would it be worth swapping out the pot ...?
I use about 10 performances in my covers band. One is a 'generic' clean in slot 1 (Fender DRRI 65) slot 2 (Morgan ac 20) which gets me through quite a few tunes. But the most demanding of the performances is Queen's Bo Rhap which I have to use 2 performances to cover.
This uses 6 rigs and from the Fanfare through the Orch section to the tail uses 4 of them - the last two involve a rig change mid phrase (different harmony set-ups) luckily this is 'almost seamless' but occasionally I stumble (literally) on the adjacent footswitch ....
Still, it's all good fun .....
Thanks, that explains it well, I have better results using a pedal assigned to expression ....
On some rigs I notice that dropping the volume from the guitar is not equal to others.
Say, going from max volume (10) down to (7 or 8).
Some rigs have to be dropped to (3 or 4) to hear a similar reduced volume ....
Anyone else notice this ?
Out 1 uses a stereo jack
Out 2 uses a standard mono jack
