Hey all, i have a bit of a meta-nerd topic I'd like to open up with you fine people. I was watching an episode of Coffee with Ola (hi Ola), and they brought up a point about the difference in the recording processes with bands vs. solo projects. Where in a band you have different gear and playing styles that all contribute to an organic sound when they come together to record a song. Whereas a 1-person solo project, more or less there's not as much of that. Despite having our own style and approach to playing, presumably when you double (or quad) track your guitars, a bit of difference in play style and gear would in fact add a little something to the overall outcome no? Otherwise each take sounds so similar to the others. Having played in bands and now writing and recording on my own, I think I can see their point and generally I agree with it. I have to constantly add some variance in how i approach writing songs, making room for some kind of variance where I can. So I'm curious where you guys stand on that notion? Agree/Disagree? Do you notice it? What do you about it? I was looking at my gear and I want to try quad tracking the next song I record with both active and passive pickups. Coincidentally I have 2 such guitars set up in the same tuning, ready to go. My general understanding leads me to believe that doing so would add that extra bit of something which I may be missing. Exploiting the best of both worlds as it were. Thoughts?
