Hi everyone, A lot of people seem to use distortion regularly (me included). I am always trying to optimize my sound for DI application, as this is how my sound is sounding/getting thru the mains. How do you cope with the fact that distortion sounds awful thru a DI? That is why I am using SansAmps which do have a type of filter/miked OD/DS sound. I always wondered how people using (boutique) distortion pedals like Bassdrive, Zvex, Bif Muff, ODB3 ... are sounding thru a DI in the Front of House Mix.... Let's face it: must of the time we only get a DI channel to the board. - Or are you using a clean DI + 1 miked and effected signal to the desk. In this case, (how) are you controlling the clean/Dist. mix? - Or are you using a speaker simulator device? - Or you using an eq to filter out those nasty highs (is this compromising your clean sound)?
