I'm having pretty much the same issue. I have my looper into my Bogners FX send and return, record a rhythm verse in the clean channel, stop it. Then replay in the clean channel, it's fine, same volume. Then when I switch to the 2nd channel set dirty, The looper drops very low. I can reverse it, same issue. The only way around this is record looper track on ...

A Squier strat is probably fine as a starter guitar for just about any style of music you want to play (including metal). I would make sure that it is properly intonated and has a reasonable buzz-free action to begin with.

Basically, you want the sustain part of the tone increased in relation to the attack part. There are three ways to do that with amps settings/ effects: either you increase the gain of the amp, you add an overdrive effect, or you add a compression effect.

Place the di box before and not after the amp by plugging your guitar directly into its input. Note that this is the preferred method when using a mixer but if using a PA you will get a much brighter signal from the guitar than ...

About a month ago I bought a Yamaha THR10 amp - small, cheap(ish), will run on batteries if you want, but a great sound with or without headphones. They have just released an all-new model so you may find the last of the previous models for bargain prices. I bought ...

I own a few practice amps/devices including the amPlug, orange crush and line 6 amplifi. They are all fine, but it depends on how YOU like to practice. Opinions aside, if you want to hear yourself play and you don't have any space and no budget, then the amPlugs actually sound good. Like you said, they are limited especially if you're looking for the chug ...

Hopefully you are not playing with all the EQ knobs on 0! Most active EQs act as a cut or boost depending on if they are high or low, and so you'll want to start them all on 5 for a flatter EQ response until you know you need something different. For distorted rock sound, try turning on the overdrive channel, and turn the volume up to somewhere between 1-3, ...
