Well, I'll try a track with the mic. I don't remember what I didn't like about it, but I do remember preferring direct.

The mic will give you a more natural sound, but going direct is fine too.

Do what you want man. ;)

Bro try putting the mic at the same place your ears are while playing it, mic should record the same tone your ears are listening ;)
If you prefer direct tone, keep with it but it's strange your mic is not recording something close to what you got direct.
Mixing both direct and miked should sound even better ;)

Truth be told, I'll be impressed if I manage a mildly successful pedal demo. I really doing it because you were right regarding experience, and how it's beneficial to playing.

I don't think they were wildly different. Seems I just preferred direct, but like I said, I don't remember exactly why. And I've read that mixing both sounds good, but have never tried it.

Okay, I finally got a workable demo of this pedal together. I followed the plan I mentioned before, which was play a piece of music twice, once without the pedal, the next with the pedal. I recorded different settings with each, with each piece also varying in style.

Gear used was an Ibanez JEM7VWH into the BB Preamp, then into an MXR Dyna Comp, then into the amp. The amp is a Hughes & Kettner Tubemeister 18 and in the FX loop is a Lexicon MPX-1. The Dyna Comp was used on the first four pieces (clean channel). The Lexicon was on a delay patch for everything except the 4th piece, which uses a reverb patch. Without further ado, here it is...
