Do any of you use all Vai gear?
Funny Bob, we both seem to have run out of the Legacy wet dream for the same reasons, but I always found recording with it was easiest.
Whenever I did anything with a mic in front of it, it was so simple. Getting my settings right through the amp was the hard part. There's this one sound in the Legacy that I suppose is it's signature sound, that I don't like. Trying to get the right balance of enough drive to sustain, enough mids to cut, but not too much to be buzzy, enough treble to be clear, but not too much to be grainy. With different mic locations I could get some seriously different sounds that really surprised me...but that one sound just kills it for me.
