tones

  1. Music: Recording Studio
    So I have some patches that sound really nice, but when I record them they don't sound so hot. I know you usually use less gain when recording, but is there anything else that you do to a tone for recording? Is there some minimal eq, comp, whatever, or would all that type of stuff be in post...

    Hey guys, I've been working on a new mix, using riffs from the Bulb track Strizzwald to test it out. Not 100% finished with the mix, but I'm pretty happy with the tones themselves. I used the (GOTM-winning ;) ) Dæmoness 7-string, which has a BKP Rebel Yell in the bridge position...
  3. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Well, while talking to my dad earlier discussing music gear and whatnot I realized that I am not really happy with my current clean tone, and want to find a preamp and use a small rack system for at least my "super clean" channel...a few extra channel options are a plus, but I realized I know...

    So I saw Ed redid his Mexi Strat with Fender Noiseless pups, so I'm considering those. However I'd like to know which set (single coils only) would get me a Gilmour-ish tone approximation. The incoming strat is whatever the MIM's are usually made of, which I think is Poplar, and the neck is...

    I'm not happy with my bass tone at all, and I think it's got a lot to do with the fact that I've no idea how to dial one in with an active bass. I like my basslines to be tight and clear, without a lot of string noise. That said, I snagged this patch from the Fractal forum, and I think the EQ...

    I am recording a new album, please rate my guitar tones - cheers ! The clips are from 5 of the 14 album tracks and are unfinished at this time. I am using a bunch of different 6-string guitars in general and 2 of them for each song ( left & right ). The guitars used on each track each have 1...

    Exactly what it says on the tin. Ironically, both of mine are from the same album, just different guitarists :lol: I included the 'making of' clips incase none of you guys have listened to the Roadrunner United album. Jeff talks a little in this one :/ You don't miss much.
  8. Music: Recording Studio
    Right, I've worked on two sounds recently, and I like elements of both. I seem to be horrible at making tones, so opinions are very welcome. The first is a TS9 into a TriAxis into a Mesa 2:90/4x12 impulse: SoundClick artist: leecassidy - page with MP3 music downloads The second is a TS9 into a...

    Which do you mesa guys go with? I like my cleans big and lush, for open-chord stuff. I don't do a lot of clean soloing at all, and if I do it's usually with an acoustic, so I'm leaning towards 50W RTT vs 100W diode, since it sounds like diode is meant to be brighter.

    Gilmourish Some really interesting stuff here.
  11. Music: Recording Studio
    I posted this over on the boogie forum for those guys, and I I figured I'd post this file here too. These are some clips from my recent recording using the Triaxis. You guys know my rig for the most part. It's a simple Triaxis/G-Force/2:90 rig. In the studio, we only really used the G-Force...

  13. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Now I've solved my FBV problem (a plug came out in shipping) I've been having a blast with my Pod XT Pro. I'm absolutely kicking myself for buying the GNX4 over it all those years ago, the tones are so much better right out the box. Anyway, what's the best source for good tones for these? Is it...
