    It sounds to me like he didn't use the same settings between the 2 shows. The Slane DVD sounds like the GAIN is not set too high, maybe between 1:00 and 2:00 for the solo's, Around The World etc but at the hyde Park gig it sounds much higher. I was at the Hyde Park gig and I remember thinking the GAIN sounded higher. It did sound awsome though, especially through a big PA. In fact for an outdoor gig I've never heard a better mix from any band.

    I would imagine he also splits his signal to keep the bottom end intact.

    u were at the the actual hyde park gig? nice, the solo flea and then john did after by the way sounded awsome i think, and u actually got to see it live! lol, so to get close to hyde parks sound just have alot of gain, if not full gain? do u think the EQ should be further towards boost or cut? and the balance closest to OD or dry

    Yes Hyde Park was excellent, and Jame Brown for support was good too. And when Flea started the bass line for 'I Feel Love' we thought it sounded amazing.

    My gues on the ODB3 setting would be about 3:00 on the gain and 10:00 to 12:00 on the balance. The eq will all depend on your amp and bass setup.

  6. imagine a clock face behind your nobs ;)

    ie 3:00 = 3 o'clock = horizontal to the right
