PM sent about MXC. Also may be interested in the B500B.

I guess this already has been tried, but anyways:
Has anyone tried following the logic/control signals with a scope to determine whether or not the compressor can actually be controlled?
And likewise follow the audio signals and the precision rectifier part of the compandor chip?

@SC I'll check out that video and may be try revise my own set ups.

@Dante, yes I have a way with words sometimes  :lol:  On the gain situation, I bump it up until I feel a certain depth is obtained.  It's less than I used to have it set.  Also my playing is a lot of legato, and I actually need a certain amount of gain to play the way I do successfully.  However perhaps with higher action I find I need more gain to be able to do the legato otherwise it's just to stiff feeling to pull it off.  Legato was my way around speed picking I guess.  I'm getting better at the picking though, but I like that I do it all legato sometimes, it makes me, me!

Well I already replaced all the parts surrounding the switching and nothing helped. My guess it's pcb thing, maybe it's conducting or something. Not sure.
Does the comp work after a while?

Ok, I changed both the PS900 opto,  U4 (74LS04) and just in case, I changed the MIDI cable that goes from the MP-1 to my Intellifex and all is good now!

Thank you MJMP and rnolan for all your help!

that's funny - my $350 Epiphone has a Seymour Duncan JB in it and it sounds AMAZING

Great guitar - Epi Vee Korina edition, 1959 reissue. Get one if you see one.

 :thumb-up:

Better to have somebody do that for ya - it's a big step, get somebody who has done it a million times. Can't wait to hear how that turns out.

I used to keep my action a bit higher than normal because of my inherit "heavy-handness" but I've been gradually adjusting it down lower over the last year or so.  Now it has that "butter" feel which I am appreciating more and so I've been making a conscious effort to play with a lighter touch and some more finesse.  I find that when my fingers start to fatigue, it's mostly because I'm squeezing too hard so I remember to lighten up some.

Man this is where I am at!  I think my action is higher than many others.  I cannot tolerate buzz.  But it's brutal on your hands and I obviously cannot handle it very well hence the fatigue issues I get.

I can't control the f**king power when I'm playing live, too much nervous energy.  Also I fear sustain death if I don't strike the string hard enough.  So I tend to have slightly higher action than most metal players anyway.  I have often wondered over the years though if this has actually hindered my progression as well???????  Probably.

So tell me how you strike big power chords lightly?  And how much rattle is too much rattle?  When do you know it's too low, too high, just the right amount and how much power you can use?

 :lol: :lol:

I love you Gerry, you kill me. I too keep my action kinda high and keep running into other guys that say I run "big" strings (.010 on the bottom). Whatever, I still have a couple guitars that play like BUTTER and some that don't. The higher action makes you stronger, but never overdo it...take a break if you're sore, don't try to power through muscle strain. I only practice with the guitars that have the BIG action and gig with the ones that play like butter. It works for me. I try to keep the action as low as I can, but I just settle with the buzz being gone and deal with what I got.

Now, as to your picking attack (aka, how hard you bang the f***king strings), I like a low gain tone that will get dirty with 'pressure' of banging the f**k out of the strangs. I use medium-to-high gain pickups and turn the gain on my rig as low as I can stand it. You'd be surprised how good you sound when you pick softly on a 'gainy' patch without all that volume-knob fiddling around, and how little gain you really need to sound awesome.

This works for me, your mileage may vary (YMMV). Of course, I am in perfect physical shape...round is a shape  :wave:

you don't happen to have one laying around that has the issue to replace parts on to see what works do you ?  just curious.
still haven't gotten around to digging the rack out, yea I'm slow, getting back into this is going to be harder than I anticipated grrrr
that and I have plenty of amps laying around etc....
but would like to get the ada stuff running again....
i do have a q on the 3tm for the mp1 though, does one do like the brown sound and
another do like a triple rectifier soundish?
since i have 2 mp1's i have been thinking about doing both of them with different mods
instead of using an axe fx...
John
