Here is a very rough test I did today to see how the X2/Lil Buddy combo recorded. I miked it up with a SM57 pointed somewhere near the rim of the speaker. I did absolutely no editing, or effecting the guitar track except I did aux send it it through the Waves IR1 reverb lightly. No EQ’ing of the guitar track, no compression none of that.
The guitar I used was an Ibanez RG321 with stock pups, the clean part is in-between the front and rear pups, each split in half, The overdrive part is straight rear humbucker full up.
I eq’d the amp as follows; Both channels Mids on 5, Trebs on 3, and bass on 3, all amp effects off. unfortunately I don’t know which model I was using on the overdrives because when I carried the X2 out to the shed (or back in the house) I moved the model selector. And since I was in headphones I never noticed the difference. I usually use the Super Sonic Model, so that was probably it.
Look for Beer Thirty Blues
