    I swapped out the broken OnN/OFF toggle switch for a new one that works though it's just a temp cause aesthetically it's a different type with an LED tip.

    I did have regular toggles like the standby switch next to it but they would'nt fit through the mouning hole in the panel (diameter too big)...this was the only one I had that did...at least I can switch it on and off from the amp now. I ordered a new switch on Amazon and hope that will fit. Worst case scenario... I'll have to file the mounting hole to make it bigger so I can use a switch I already have.

    Actually, after using the new Steinberg interface for a couple of days..I think it has pretty musical sounding preamps (maybe warmer/sweeter or something) than my Mackie which seems a bit more clinical. They both have their uses But I slightly prefer the tones I get recording with the Steinberg ..even more so than with my Audient ID4's mic input.

    I now have the ID4 hooked up to my Two Notes Captor X (which I still have'nt begun using) cuz the mic input's at the back and it's more convenient having it hooked up that way on my desk.. both the Steinberg and the Mackie have the mic/instrument inputs in front which makes it a lot easier for plugging in a guitar/mic'd cab.

    Anther thing I really like about the Steinberg is the ease of disconnecting the mic jack. It has a really nice smooth mic socket. I've broken a lot of coffee mugs (with coffee in them) in the past by knocking them off my desk when struggling to pull out mic cables from stubborn interfaces & the jack's suddenly jerking free. It's no fun cleaning up afterwards

    But overall it's a hell of a lot easier to deal with than a Sustainiac. I think my Sustainiac is just set a bit too "intense" or sensitive from the factory .. I need to find the trimpot in there and dial that back a bit. With the Freqout it's just a matter of fiddling with the "intensity" knob until it feels comfortable to play and you don't need to do gymnastics with your fingers to mute everything & yet get the sustaining sounds you're after

    Then you can get the effect to come in automatically ()and fast or slow..you can set that too) or only when you step on the pedal which is convenient/cool and beats having to switch toggles on and off in the middle of your solo's..

    All in all a very cool pedal that sounds awesome and is a breeze to use.

    The only thing I don't care for about the ^^ FreqOut is it does'nt run on a battery...always find walwart's a PIA

    My Digitech FreqOut pedal arrived yesterday..so I hooked it up to the Super Crush and jammed the ballad again, but with some harmonic wailing this time

    It's a fun pedal and a bit more practical than a Sustainiac to use in the sense that it's more controllable/manageable (easier to step on/release a footswitch than flip multiple toggles on & off). I still have'nt got the hang of setting it up right to my exact preference but when I do I'm sure it can be used really convincingly for very amp-like sounds...



    There's a setting that gets really awesome volume knob swells too (like the beginning of Rush's Xanadu)..I messed around with that a bit as well yesterday..

    Couple of days ago I thought I'd blown up my Mackie interface (long story) but it turned out to be something else completely and the Mackie is fine. But I'd already gone on Amazon and picked up a Steinberg UR22C which by the time I realized the Mackie was fine had already shipped. Anyway...you can't have too many audio interfaces so it's now a part of my interface Wall of abyssmal DOOM. Also picked up a usb hub with individual on/off switches so I can safely switch between them (interfaces) without interference/problems..

    Anyway first go with the Steinberg..it's 32 bits vs all the other ones that are 24 bits but in real terms it makes no difference and sounds like the others

    Anyway bottom line.. it sounds all right and works fine which is all I want

    And here's one that starts with the same thing as above (both mic'd speaker's blended) then just the Sheffeild @ 1:18 mins & just the WGS @ 2:36 mins. I really think they combine awesomely. Blended is warmer. thicker, but also livelier & more 3D. While the Sheffield on it's own is a bit too even/flat/dark sounding and the ET65 is nice on it's own but a bit sharper/thinner than when it's blended with the Sheffield.. which , as I said, I like best

    This is he first time I've recorded anything with two mics. Cuz I wanted to check out the recorded blended tone between the the WGS ET65's & The Peavey Sheffield 1200's I have in this cab right now (which sound mega awesome to me out in front) so..

    I had my Chinese BM800 condenser on the WGS & The Sennheiser e906 dynamic on the sheffield (top speakers) like in the photo in the video. They were both @ the edge of the dustcap's. And I recorded it into my Mackie Onyx Producer interface which has two mic inputs for simultaneous recording . One speaker's panned 32% to the left and the other's 32% to the right (not sure which is which). Both were recorded with the same audio levels on the meter in Reaper...

    No FX/Post prod. (Onboard reverb @1 on the amp)
