    Incredible guides to mixing metal - MUST READ

    Hi guys,

    Over on the Sneap forum, a frequent poster and excellent producer/engineer has started up a series of very in-depth posts on mixing metal and rock. So far he has covered guitars and drums, and both are absolute must-reads for anyone interested in recording:

    Introduction/Glossary

    Poking Holes in High-gain Guitars

    In Soviet Russia, Drums Slam You

    Hope you guys find this helpful

    Oh, and this is his production company: SYSTEMATIC PRODUCTIONS - Official Website

    i actually read the high gain guitar one last night!

    i wish i had the gear to record myself and get a better idea of how all this works.

    can anyone suggest a decent setup for recording guitars (mic'd cabs not pods or axe fx) and give an estimation on total cost?

    Whoo! Thanks, Nolly. I got even more excited when I saw Erms was writing it; he's pretty great.

    I'm at work, and haven't read these yet, but I'm excited to see if they'll help my snare get more spank.

    Well that Ola guy who does all the amp demos on YouTube just uses, Shure SM57, Apogee One Audio Interface into a Mac running Logic.

    So I suppose all you'd need is an SM57, a decent audio interface into a DAW, (Reaper is free).

    Yeah, you should be good to go with an SM57 and a decent interface to begin with. With time you will want a good preamp to get the best out the mic.
    Someone in the US might be able to help you with the rough prices
