So I went to my "Hulk" Soloist on this one. I figure it's more properly intonated and in tune than my 7.

Anyways just dropped this and spent a good while eq'ing it. It's not really a song but more of a practice sesh on a drums+rhythm track. Have not figured out how to pitch shift my guitar down to act like a bass and thus there's no bass guitar in the mix.

:cheers:

Not hearing much bass.
That's cuz there's no bass :lol: I'm figuring out how to use the GSPs pitch shifter to get a guitar=>bass type patch.

EDIT: Just swapped in a new drum track that I think fits better than before. Introduced some bass drum for a fuller sound. Still no bass.

Buy a reel bass. None of this fake bass shit :nono:

Other than the "bass," it sounds pretty good to me. Even after knowing you put some fake bass in there, it was hard to tell whether it was a "bass" or just the bass drum.

I agree with Josh. You should get a real bass.

Thanks man. I don't know about buying a bass - I love guitars too much to spend more money on a bass :rofl:

Hm, is something out of phase? The new version kind of hurts my ears to listen to - it's not the tone or anything, it's just bouncing back and forth and uncomfortable in the mix. :scratch:

That aside, for general riffery, just get a clean patch and play the bass on the B string on the 7. Roll back tone knob, crank up bass, kill mids/highs, voila, faux-bass. :D

Each one sounds better than the last dog! Is this still the single-coil mode on the 89x-w-r or whatever?
Thanks I've found a good standard setting on the EQ that I have to run after recording and just basically tweaking it hear and there. This actually this is just my Soloist 6'r with the 81n/85b. The strings on the 7 are just done.

@ Chris - sorry man my ears aren't at that level of sophistication where I can detect the out of phase parts. :shrug:

EDIT: Chris - I just listened to the version and it sounds like my stacked delay could be the problem.. although I don't see how it would affect the entire mix :scratch:

Will administer that for the next clip seeing as I'm getting decent bass from the drums. :yesway:

Dunno, it just makes my ears hurt. :scratch: I thought it might be my audio driver, so I queued up something else and, nope, just your track. Weird.

My advice at the onset is to not worry so much about stacking delays and such, and just get yourself a nice, raw, clean take down. Doubletrack and pan, get your rhythms tight, mix it up a bit, and add a touch of flavor to it at the end. :yesway:

there is some weird compression going on there. i dunno if it's on everything or if it's on the rhythm guitars but it's need to be less compressed i think.

Yeah you guys were right. I Googled it and found Soundcloud is having issues with heavy compression and audio degradation.
Horrendous sound quality - sort the compression please!

Bad sound - Is it over compression or over-normalization?
