i’m exploring a Blackstar HT-Metal tube overdrive guitar pedal that is so powerful, it is like an amplifyer head… and offers cabinet emulation output.
the channel A is on ‘clean’ setting, allowing for clean boost of the input by passing it through the hot vaccuum glass tube. Decently sized hot glass. The pedal also has an EQ section and a Bias setting… the signal path is completely analog.
anyway this is working great as an insert effect for the bassdrum.
in Global Settings i assigned Trig track 1 to Output E, taking the signal by lead to the input of the HT-Metal pedal. The output of the pedal then returns to the Machinedrum Input A, and on Trig track 16, i made an Input machine for the returning signal.
As regards finding out whether the two-tier system regarding 44.1kHz and 22.05kHz for automatic encoding of samples by the Machinedrum, the way to verify things is to feed the MD two versions of the same sample, then check what file size they are after the import and MD’s subsequent encoding process (happens at time of import).
