I see, cool I’ll try that with Guitar Pro I must admit I didn’t think of that. Just doing a simple drum pattern drove me crazy.
I can get some pretty powerful metal guitar sounds using the built-in effects on my Zoom multi-studio or the line 6 pod, just going straight into the my PC or via a USB audio interface, no amp or anything. As soon as you get a real amp involved it gets hard to capture a good guitar sound unless you’ve got some good mics or a good DI,which I guess the average guitarist doesn’t have at home, I certainly don’t.
Double tracking the guitar always helps or you could do a stereo split with one track to beef it up when you’re doing the mix.
I’m no expert when it comes to mixing though and I’m sure theres plenty of tricks you can do to make the guitars sound more powerful.
Yours sounds pretty good to me though. I could spend days messing around with a mix and the stuff I’ve done at home so far doesn’t sound as good as yours.
