    I am using REAPER.
    No VST's of any kind except SD were used in the clip. Simple direct guitars from the axe-fx.

    @Ibanezlover, yeah haha got to. ;)

    More opinions/critics?

    Tone sounds pretty good. Are those the stock pickups?

    @Zonk, yeah those are the stock pickups man.

    @Raayl, haha! I know what you're talking about! I do laugh out loud when I really get shocked by the greatness of certain parts in songs. Thank you so much! This is really appreciated. :D


    Thanks to both of you,
    Any other thoughts people?

    only thing I dislike is the drums. it sounds too close to the sound of the stock avatar kit I find, other than that it's good !

    Thanks man!
    Yeah well, like I mentioned, I used C2Aye's preset so no tweaking at all on the kit done by myself. I did not work on the mix att all. :p
    But yeah, I guess it iss personnal preference because I do like the sound of the stock kit. :p

    I remembered that you posted on my ss.org profile asking about the guitar tone in this clip and I totally blanked on replying so here's my reply!

    Low gain is good, definitely works for clarity and expression. The focus on midrange is good as well if you're going for a 'djent' tone but try to make it more on the high midrange. I noticed that the tone has a bit too much going on in the low midrange area. Also, a tone like a djent one doesn't neccesarily sound huge on its own but in a mix it can sound awesome so keep experimenting with the tone in mixes with bass guitar if possible!

    Hey thank you really much for taking the time to reply man. :p

    Yeah I know what you mean about the low-midrange... Actually, tone sounds way less bassier by itself. The problem is, I duplicated one of the guitar tracks, EQ'ed it so it sounds bassy and panned it in the center in the clip... Does not sound great after reflexion. x) haha I first wanted to add a bit of bass but I guess I should have tracked real bass. -.-'

    Also, thanks for thr advice on the djent type tone but I am not necessarely going for that exact sound. :p I assume it sounds a bit like it but my main goal was not to achieve a precise djenty tone.

    Just so you can compare, here is the tone by itself without any drums or bass. ;)
