Re: Help with pod/studio monitor project

This only used in my home and not for gigging. Would anybody have any recommendations for a setup like this. My two amps are a Peavey Rage 158 and a Crate G15XL and they don't sound good alone on a good day. Thanks in advance!
I'm sure you probably remembered to do this, but did you turn the A.I.R. mode switch to "Amp" instead of direct? What about turning off the cabinet emulation? Not sure that that will make a Peavey or Crate sound "better"... but it might help a tiny bit.
Also, what is your goal? Do you just want to hear better tone in your practice room... or are you trying to record what is coming out of your amps with a mic?
Let me know and maybe I can give you a couple of pointers,
