    Is there a way to use an expression pedal to control the gain without dramatically changing the volume?

    Tracii Guns does it with the Headrush here:




    Here are my settings:

    You can control the amp gain with the expression pedal.
    Tracii is going direct using an amp model and CAB IR.
    You're bypassing the power amp modeling and the CAB IR,
    so that could be the difference.

    Hmm, Thanks. I'm going into a Headrush 112. Should the power amp be disabled or enabled?

    Also, how am I bypassing the CAB IR? It's enabled and makes a big difference in the sound.

    Are you saying if you have the PowerAmp disabled the CAB IR is disabled as well?

    I'm sorry if I misunderstood.
    You should certainly be using the power amp modeling ON
    and the CAB IR ON going in to the Headrush powered speaker.

    Cool. Thanks again. I can hear a lot more clarity with it on.
