Hey Mister Pseudo-Buddha man...
I've been using HK Redboxes for years and the new Red Box Pro looks like
new-improved-gotta-buy-it version... no battery!? ground lift and cab sim
so you can just use it like an ordinary full range direct box... I've
been really pleased with them. The batteries lasted forever in the old
I mostly used them with a Pearce G2r amp and before that Marshalls... The
G2r has the bottom booty and high end, if you're willing to tweak.
I now use the cabinet sims in my Boss GX-700 which are identical (I
that dept. to the Roland GP-100... They sound good, but I'm going to do
A/B-ing with the HK's...
I have a friend who swears by his Cabtone, but I don't personally have any
experience with it. He's a very dark sounding player though and they don't
BTW: I saw Fripp last night with P4 and he did some of the fattest,
sounding solos I've ever heard him do... If that's strictly a GP-100 tone
cab sim, I'd better get home and start tweaking! It was great...
The sound system was very 3D and some of Fripps stacked chordal pads moved
around like clouds in a windy sky... Sometimes it even sounded like they
behind me!? Each player was very audible and distinct. Best mix I've heard
long time... (7th Note club in SF).
OB Loop item... The dueling Vortexes are now coming into their own with
JamMan feeding one and the Stereo Guitar signal feeding the other! I'm
that it's the most radical-as-well-as-subtle Chorus, flange, panner,
delay going... Morph from a subtle flutter or delay in the background
madness or anywhere in between!
