Abraxas IV
« on: August 08, 2005, 12:35:42 AM »
This is just a quick clip to show the lead and clean sounds with the Abraxas IV's.  It has taken ne ages to get something working to record to the PC!  I am using a Johnson J-Station and the lead part was recorded with the JCM800 -EL34 emulation, the clean part was the Black Face.  I recorded it into Sonar 3 using the SPDIF output into a Tascam PCI 822.

The first part of the lead is the Neck Pickup, then the bridge, then back to the neck for the last part of the bass notes.  The clean sound starts with the bridge, then the neck and ends on both pickups.

Hope you can get an idea of the sound from this.  Once I get more used to it, I will record something properly (using a real amp though!).
So many pickups, so little time

Wow! Sweet, warm and gorgeous cleans. The clean part reminds me of Apocalypse Now.

Very impressed by the clean part too. Under gain, it's Santanesque to the bone!

Thanks everyone.  I', still trying to get to grips with monitoring on Sonar, and I want to get an amp miked up, just to let you hear how they feedback too!

I am really happy with the Abraxas, just what TIm told me it would be  :)

Just had a chance to check this clip out (I'm on holiday in the States -- Colorado at the moment!) and: mmmmmm, sweet! :)  I definitely like the sound of that.

Yeah, I'm interested to hear the Abraxases cranked up, too :).  Bring on some more!
