I talked about starting this thread a week ago and finally remembered!
We’ve had a couple topics asking specifically about recorded guitar tone and I thought it might be fun/informative to start a thread where member share their current recordings and talk about how they captured the tone and processed it.
Share audio, screenshots, ask questions, share feedback and have fun!
I’ll kick things off with a little shootout. This is a song I’m demoing. It’s missing lead guitar and vocals (and a proper bass track) but I’ve been using it as a test animal for a few guitar VSTs. Here are a few versions of the same song. Both songs have two DI guitar tracks, programmed drums (unprocessed) and crappy bass.
(This is using free amp sim software. I believe it’s Nembrini Crunk on one side and Ignite Emissary on the other)
(This are recorded with my Line 6 Helix)
(Guitar tone powerd by Mercuriall SS-11X.r)
Anyone got a favourite of these three? I’d like to eventually quad-track these guitars.
I’ll add more to this thread as I’ve got a few recording projects on this go, but off to work now. Looking forward to hearing what other people have come up with!
