Nothing to base ???!!!
Do you know me !!??
I'm a guitar player and a recording engineer.I already played with all models (the famous ones) of amps,pedals and modellers.I have a recording studio so my clients sometimes have new equipments like those zooms you said.They all sound like cra.p.Who already played through a tube amp,knows it.For you ,zoom player,obviously zoom is good because YOU don't know what is good.Nobody in the world make albums using zoom,even the crapiest bands,so enjoy your zoom and your lack of experience.
I already recorded every modeler in the market and about distortions,all of them sounds terrible.Of course for you who only play your zoom in your bedroom can't understand what I'm talking about.
Kiko loureiro,long time friend use a zoom as a buster,you know why?
Because zoom pay him to use it.Me and Kiko already played in 8 instrument fairs,we showed our zooms to crowd but our sound came from a tube amp in the backstage.
So zoom and all digital modelers are really good for who can't afford a tube amp and for studIng and composing.
I told my experiences not to mean like I'm better than anyone here but just because that moron wich really don't know me and have nothing better to do than GUESSING what I did or not.
I only talk about equipments I used and recorded,if I didn't used,I won't talk about.
I'm from a third world ,people don't have money so 98% have zoom or some other modeller.
I know I'm a newbie here but I can't stand a creature wich don't know me started GUESSING what I did or not in my life.!!!!!!!!
I'm just trying to share my experiences and maybe could help somebody unexperienced. Maybe not.
But I'll try
