D Moll vs Hagen

What are you using for DAW and plugins?? Just curious.

I've used my TF in the front and back of my setup. As I often run a stereo setup, it's been easier to manage up front - albeit I'm in the midst of tear-down on the effects and studio - and will likely attempt stereo delay and reverb in the loop of 2 heads, line level, matching parity/etc - and see how a) it sounds, and b) how to control it. Things are shifting for my setup as of late - the need for sound insulated spaces for my cabs and mics has dropped as my productivity has gone up - all thanks to the new TwoNotes CaptorX (and a blown DAW server that just recently got replaced - which also meant hours of downloads of software, licensing, etc. - backups only do data - not programs). ANYWAY, gameplan is all amps accessible at my desk, with TwoNotes paired to any 1-4 amps at any given time, Clarett8Pre O/I, into my DAW, out to monitors/headphones - all effects accessible at the desk to run series, parallel or whatever, with MIDI tending to those that can be MIDI controlled.

Fun!!
I'm using Studio One. And only using a couple plugins that are in Studio One. I don't really do much for mixing or anything....I have a couple people that will do that for me when it gets to that point. The big issue is I don't have a room that is any good for micing or even monitors....so I just use my Beyerdynamic DT770's and Audio Technica AT 50's. I just have what I need to get my guitar recorded with the Hagen so someone else can mix it. My brother has a full Pro Tools HD setup at his house. Here's a pic of my brother's studio from about a year ago. They just did a complete remodel of their house that took about 6 months....new roof... completely gutted the interior and re built it..... basically paid for a completely new house with extra space. So he's in the process of setting everything back up and tuning and treating the new room.

^^^^ completely understand.

And ya, yer Bro's place kinda looks like the setup I'm working through now - multi-MIDI controllers, DAW screens, etc - but the access to effect pedals, and a patch-bay for all amps to run through the audio I/O

It's a project.

Nice thing is - I can just plug in and play an amp/cab when not in the mood for renos.

The reason I asked about yer set up was the recordings sounded good - you'd mentioned drums - etc - was just keen to know wwhat you used for the add-ons

Anyway - ROCK ON!!!!!
Peace

I wish I had the space to get into it like you and my brother. But....I'm just super stoked with my new gear....it'll get me going in the right direction. Thanks for the props about the clips. I really don't know what I'm doing.....I just turn stuff on and twist knobs until it sounds decent to me. I'm putting a clip here again.... shocker....I might be doing this to you guys for awhile...haha. This clip is the middle section of a song I'm working on. The drums this time are not a loop. The insane Travis Orbin from Darkest Hour/Periphery wrote them....I just put his midi file into EZ Drummer and use a John Tempests kit and then use a couple plugins. The guitar is just raw Hagen again. I'm including pics instead if explaining it all. This is what the Hagen does when you dime the channel volume. It's channel 3 and I'm including a pic if the amp settings as well as the IR's I'm using. I used a different IR for left and right panned tracks. I was thinking some kind of ambient lead over some of this part but I'm not that good at leads......so Unkle Mo I'll need you to rip a tripped out lead over it....haha. Also....the droney part is Channel 2 with just an Undulator preset from the Modfactor. Oh yeah....and I also flipped the high pass switch on my interface....pic included.

You're doing something many people tend not too - rather than getting caught up in the minutiae, you're fkn playing guitar. At the end of the day, it's playing guitar that gives us the skills, not oogling techno shit and pondering mental schematics of design.

I own both only these amps and i would recommend the dmoll based on your requirements.

That said I don't think you'd be unhappy with either.

Really just a question of do you want to spend more to have an additional channel?
