Using the Pod's pitch shifter to get to drop G# (I'm in Drop C) and started feeling djenty, and wanted to test out some tones.

Put two amp models through the Mark IV's poweramp and mic'd. Left is Recto and right is Engl, no cab emulation (obviously)

Playing around like this makes me want a 7 string baaaad.

Couldn't help myself, added drums to those riffs. Kind of repetitive but I think it could turn into a cool song.

Same tone as last clip but playing lead. It's the theme from Final Fantasy IX, basically just the dorian mode and that's it. I think I might turn this into some sort of heavy cover, I can hear some great parts in my head.

I've been running my 8ohm Mark IV head into a 16ohm cab because I was stupid and ordered the wrong speakers. Well I rewired my cab to 4ohms parallel, and now running the 4ohm output on my amp to the cab, so everything matches up.

There is DEFINITELY a tone different. I read somewhere that 4ohms tightens up the bass and makes it more punchy, and that's definitely true. When I was mismatching, my bass response was loose and the bass was just out of control even with a tame bass setting (you can see on some recent clips of people saying the bass it too boomy)

I actually should have recorded some palm mutes but oh well. I don't know what this is.. just some riffs. I really want to add some drums.

Re-recorded this riff right when I got my cab a few days ago but I forgot about it.

compare to:
http://netmusicians.org/?section=id&value=9371 and

That's what I had my Crate cab, two different mic positions.

This tone is overall kind of bright and piercing but I had just received my cab and stuck my mic in front of it, already amazed at how much my tone improved. Although it's not the best, I think overall it's much better than the sound coming from the Crate.

Re-uploading with just the guitars isolated. I had the backing track too loud in the last clip and wanted to fix it but figured I could just upload this instead.

No post processing besides very slight high/low passes and some compression to give it some punch.

Oooohh noooo it's the ROS DI tracks yet again.

I was able to rig up a faux reamping rig. My interface output into my HD500, bringing the signal to instrument level, into my Mark IV, the mic'd and going back into the interface. I played the DI track in Reaper while also recording a track.

I couldn't get the signal as hot as I wanted (and the DI clips are definitely hotter than my guitars pickups, yet I wasn't receiving as much gain, so I put the TSE 808 boost VST before the DI track, then I had my Lead Drive on 10. Whew.

Testing the HD500 using the "screamer" overdrive model to boost my Mark IV.

I was playing around, and Petrucci's old Mark IV settings are just really muddy on mine... probably because I have medium output, muddy, stock pickups, in combination with old tubes. But I had the idea to boost it with my Pod since I don't have a boost pedal.

I think it worked out pretty well. More gain and more tightness. Pretty good for a modeling pedal.

First clip is normal, then the second is boosted.

Came up with the bouncy delay part awhile back and it turned into this... not sure what else to do with it.

Running my HD500 through my Mark IV. The clean is the Mark IV clean channel, and the lead is still the clean channel with a tube screamer on the Pod. Effects are all pod, including the background pad-like noise. Bass is pitch shifted guitar, drums are Addictive Drums.

Also that lead-y part is like half improv, so it's kind of sloppy.

If anyone has any input on what this could turn into, I'm all ears... I want to make it longer but I'm not sure what to do.
