Didn't they use an ENGL Invader to record?
Also, Misha used a Cold Sweat bridge, Painkiller neck for his Blackmachine.

No, all guitars are direct with Axe FX amp modeling.
He does (has?) owned an Invader, but was never used for the album.

Is this thread only for productions that Sneap has been involved in? Or can we add others that Sneap hasn't done? (but still on topic, obviously).

For the In Flames - Soundtrack to your Escape album, how would they use the Big Muff as a boost? Whenever I try it, it thickens it up, but it sounds too "fuzzy".

Really? Sneap used Livewires and 707s? I always thought he hated 707s and Seymour Duncan livewires, I figured he made Jeff Loomis use the 81-7 and Dave use EMGs.

Yeah, I knew that's what was in their signature guitars, but artists don't always use their signature equipment on the record. I've always found livewires to be kinda weak, and I've heard bad things about 707s from my seven string buddies.

Nothing about Fredrik Nordstrom?? I dig his way of recording guitars.
I know he's a fanboy of Engl Savage and double micing, sm57 (Marshall/Engl cab???) but no details about boost. I never saw a TS on photos/vids...
I think he uses 5150 pretty often (maybe to blend with Engl), right?

I thought pretty much everyone recording live metal amps used a boost these days.

In Flames - Sounds of a Playground Fading, info directly from Roberto Laghi!

Rhythm guitars were a mix of EVH 5153 and Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier into Mesa cabs.
Leads were a Marshall JMP 2203, he didn't mention what cab, but I believe it's same as the rhythm guitars!

He said nothing about any boosts, but that doesn't exclude the possibility.

Exodus - Exhibit B: The Human Condition

Amp: ENGL Savage 120
Guitars: Some Schecter Hellraiser V-FR with passive PUs (looks like SD Custom(bridge) and SD JB(neck))
ESP Eclipse II QM STBC fors Lee's solos

Unfortunately no cabs or mics known but due to gary's and andy's preferences an educated guess would be SM57 and some sort of V30 4x12.

After years of ambiguity surrounding this one, I've finally found info right from the horse's mouth about the tone on this album


I found a forum post from like 2005, including one from Mark Hunter himself on the old old old Chimaira forum.

It's just 2 tracks of guitar, one left one right, Matt was going into his 5150II and Rob into his 5150, both into Mesa OS, no boosts.

Settings were: pre-10, low-5-6, mid-2, high-9, post-3, res-10, pres-7-8 for the 5150II, and for the 5150 apparently everything on 10

I wonder what they used to put on those old 70's-80's LPC's.

Current LPC's have 490R/498T, right?

Only just noticed this! ^ sorry man!
Well no, since it was a Colin Richardson mix! And he didn't reamp, as far as I'm aware.
