Re: Vox Tonelab for looping (reply from Vox about high freq issue)

Well, you can to some degree, but then your sounds end up sounding like 
mud.  The *only* EQ it has is your basic amp tone controls.  Bass, mid, 
high and presence.  There is no post model EQ like the Pods have.  I've 
heard people going mono have had good luck with a MXR 10 band graphic 
EQ.  I imagine any EQ with the ability to shelf off most of the signal 
beyond 6 khz would work.  I add a touch of bass too, but I would 
consider that personal taste and not really an issue of the Tonelabs. 
(both the Tabletop and the SE have this issue I've found)
