hi gang; I'm working on a doom metal project and I'd very much like to replicate a guitar sound in the vein of Cathedral/Entombed/Vallenfyre. I'm new to recording software & stuff, so I'm pretty clueless as to what kind of plug-ins might be able to help me get that kind of sound . so far, the closest I've gotten to it is by using the "Ominous Crunch" preset in Garageband and tweaking it a bit, but I'm really not satisfied . can anybody help? I've included a link below to one of my songs. thanks!
Emulating the Boss HM-2 is a PITA but try using a boost/drive sim and boost +3 to +10db @ 1000Hz in to a Plexi/JCM8-900 or 5150 sim/amp. This is a good starting point. The buzzsaw tone you are after is caused buy crossover distortion. Think of a square wave. I've done this on the Axe-fx II with some decent results.
