When I use my metalzone emulator on my GNX3, combined with a high distortion amp model, and crank the gain, the strings squeel when I strum. GRIM!

Some of you are not helping the issue

Good distortion DOES NOT mean more gain. Infact it is the opposite. More gain=more fuzz=bad slop shit sounding distortion. Good distortion is about good EQ with the perfect amount of gain. I don't think that is ever stated enough on the site.

tone and gain are not the same thing. but gain does have alot to do with tone.

more gain doesnt really mean fuzz/bad.. some amps just have more usable gain than others... like a 5150 compared to my pro mod 100... i can dime the gian on the promod and it's crystal clear. yet a 5150 with the gain past like 6 is a nightmare of muckyness.

it is metal and it usually does require a fair amount of gain.

The world of gain/distortion is a parlous dimention of sound my friend. I fear we might both be right and both wrong
