ok so there is a van Halen love affair going on over on the FAS forum (all right already ) so I decided to see if I could nail th eVH II sound which is my favorite one.
So I found a BT of "Outta Love" and dialed in a Boger Red patch on the AXe II
when I was playing this back thru the Rokits 8's I just recently picked up it sounded f'n killer, but when I render down to an MP3 I notice that the tracks I'm recording seem to lose the top end "shimmer" they have during play back???
WTF? what do I need to do here ( this has no post Eq-ing as , well I don't fucking know how to post Eq )
clip, I used my all maple GMW which is my 80's "Beast"
surprisingly almost completely nailed the solo (which I haven't played in about 5 years )
I think that sounds pretty damn good man- what are your mixdown settings in reaper?
