        Here's a quick demo of what my pedal board sounds like with the Session and Venue...This is a Lyric pickup installed in a Martin D-35....

          Very cool!

          Have you tried any experiments with the Venue/Session order yet? I actually like the sound of the Session before the Venue, but it's definitely a matter of personal preference.

            Thanks !! Yes I did try putting the Session first, it sounded okay, but I like having the Venue first and the Session second because I don't want anything messing with the multi-band compressor's effect in the Session. In fact I found this video which demonstrates putting the eq first in line before a compressor. It's only about 5 minutes long but well worth watching.....

            In my opinion, which means diddly sqwat, I don't want to take apart the multi-band compression effect with an eq...what would be the point of compressing your signal, just to add and subtract parts of it with the EQ ?? It doesn't make sense to me...I want the Session unit to have the final say so of my music....but that's just my opinion, everybody is free to do whatever they like and do what makes sense to them. Some people may want to polish off the compressed signal with some eq adjustments. That's fine too. But I'm a huge fan of multi-band compression and I guess that's why I want it to be at the final stage of my chain.

              Ok,
              A lot of people have different thoughts and get different results. I'm just an advocate for trying different things to see what you like the most. Let your ears be the judge.

              Thanks for sharing.

                Well in the above video, the guy states that he likes to "scoup out" the bad frequencies with the EQ, then compress the remaining good frequencies. That sounds like a good plan to me. After listening to what he did with the eq...I liked what he did. He cleaned up that guitar track nicely, then compressed it. That's what I want to do too..


                Now on to my next project...getting rid of squeaky string noise in my recordings....

                  Success !!I got rid of the sqeaky strings by changing them to Elixer Polywebs....somebody suggested that and it worked...

                  Here's the same sample recording with the new strings...

                        Here's a much better recording of the Lyric/Reverb/Venue/Session chain....I also put in a sound hole cover on the guitar to help eliminate feedback problems I was dealing with......so far I like it, it seems to help the Lyric out quite a bit !!..

                        Sorry I didn't get to this sooner, but I was playing out the last couple of nights...

                          Just playing around with my pedal board, on one track I have the Lyric>Venue>Session and on the other track I have an AT 2020 mic. So this is a blend of them both...

                          After making multiple recording demo's tonight, I have to say the Lyric sounds best when blended with a mic. The Venue and the Session definitely help, but adding a mic to the Lyric gives the best results.

                              You know what's interesting about this recording is the dynamics between the finger picking and the hard strumming sections. They're both at similar volume levels, just like what you'd hear on a record...I have to attributive that to the multi-band compressor in the Session DI.

                              Please excuse my rough playing of that song as I haven't played it for 30 some years... just starting to re-learn it now....
