Nice mix man, huge low end
These are all brilliant.. so soothing. literally sat down and listened to them all, they were so good.
Love that fretless
Nice guitar tone man,
What was in the signal chain?
Here's a track I did, Make sure you have a glass of your favorite scotch and a cigar.. if you smoke.
Nice Thread, dude. Thanks for the opportunity to share our works.
I just got back from taking some leave and i happened to be having quite the Dragonball Z marathon and came up with this. Still in development of course but i'd love to hear thoughts
a idea that is much less polished, i really only uploaded to let my girl hear it but i figured "what the hell" lol, she says it should be two different songs but i like the "false intro" thing.
My latest in an attempt to get a recordable tone from my amp. 1st part is amp in mix, second is VST in mix, third is amp alone. All double tracked but for the amp both sides have the identical tone. (Bass:3 Mid:6 Treb:8 Pres:7) and Im using an SD-1. One's passed at 85/6.5k and the other at 85/9k. Any help on how to get a less 'staticky tone' (aside from just lowpassing the hell out of it at a point where i lose all brightness/treble) and clearer results are much appreciated. One side also has a bit of reverb. I know the cabinet I'm using is not ideal for recording due to it's 'boxyness' but I have no other choice. Any and all criticism that can help me improve as much as I can will be more than greatly appreciated.
Edit: Think I'll turn up the bass abit next time, they sound a bit thin... i went too far out on the whole cut the low end out for a less flabby side thing... xD
Bump... I know its by far nowhere near good but I'm mostly looking on tips for improving he tone/recording either through eqing or however else. Anyone have any tips so I can try to keep getting better?
I got superior drummer a couple days ago, only partial download at the moment until the box comes in the mail... recorded this cover to test out what i have... cubase must have updated and taken some of my mixing tools off of me so i just did what i could figure out until i got the shits with it.
Working on some new sounds... here is a pre production tone test for guitar and drums I did for an upcoming project
Hey man, I will take a stab at trying to help. In my opinion, the tone you had from the VST was the best. I have found that IRs can make a huge difference. What are you using for an amp sim/IR loader? Ignite Amps makes a really rad IR loader that has built in LPF/HPF that is useful.
That being said, I don't think you have to low pass the shit out of your guitars. If you go with the real amp, I would suggest bringing the treble down a little bit (maybe from 8 to 6) and bringing the bass up a bit to 4.5-5. I know you want the low end tight, but taking that much bass out seems a bit overkill to me. Lastly on the SD-1 how high is the tone knob set? Rolling that back a hair may help as well.
For EQing guitars I like to use a parametric EQ. I cut all the low end below 60-75Hz (this will help with tightness). I cut the low mids a bit around 400Hz (to make room for the bass and drums). Then I boost the mids at 1.6kHz (helps with the overall attack and helps the guitars "stand out"). Then I cut everything over between 15-16kHz on the high end to keep it from getting shrill. Listen to the clip in my sig, and that is how the guitars are post EQ'd. It may sound like shit to you, but that is how I do things. I hope this helps.
Any advice is appreciated man. I took a listen and its just not my kind of sound/doesn't fit the song. Might try those amp settings out a bit though definitely. It migttve been smart to post the latest (similar but better) result.
[sc]http://soundcloud.com/tausigmanova/tornado-nov26[/sc] did actually increase bass and roll off some treble here. Might quad track too.
Hey dudes, I need some help about my current tone!
I'm trying to get a good JP tone out of my Schecter Synyster Custom and Overloud TH2, so here you have some samples:
They are pretty similar, I only changed the mic position and I tweaked a little bit the treble and bass.
Thanks in advance...!
Working on a new song. Trying my hardest to make it sound good. This is just the first 20 seconds, but it's me on guitar, bass and drums (live kit). I am not a sound engineer at all and this is a lot of guesswork to get the sound I have so far. I need more tinkering but I am getting to that point where I am scared to move anything else in case I forget how I had it! lol.
I came home today and though: "what if I quad track rather than double track?"
And then I did this which in my opinion sounds completely amazing/meaner compared to the double tracked versions. Didn't have much time so I only did a few parts of the song. I also raised some of the low/low-mid frequencies of the backing track with EQ so the bass would be more audible, as would the drums. Think it's sounding much better.
Also, on two of the tracks I used a Jazz III (my normal) and on two I used a Dunlop Gel X-H for more attack.
