    With slaving, you would be recording the preamp of Amp A (the master) through the power amp of Amp B (the slave) and miking Amp B's speaker cab...You could also simultaneously mic Amp A's speaker cab since it would be playing as well (unless one used a load box to eliminate the need for a cab for amp A).

    I have tried many things (delay, simultaneous amps/cabs and so on) but imo, for some stuff, quadtracking (with two different sounds) is the way to go!

    Why you just put an A/B box before your amps, and split your signal in order to run both amps and therefore both cabs at the same time???

    because the idea is to have the preamp of one amp running through 2 different poweramps, a bit different.

    fter A/B ing some quad again double parts, i honestly think the bit of "wider" sound you get when quad tracking isn't worth not the effort, and definitly not the lack of clarity you get from it.

    and while wer'e on the subject: Andy.... Ashes Of The Wake, This Godless Endeavor and Endgame.... quad or double?

    My strategy so far has been using 4 tracks in 2 groups. Because I don't have stereo imaging EQ's (those ones that affect left, right, middle and sides) I've tried using the second 2 guitars that are harder panned as a gentle midrange\hi mid boost, to create a more stereo image? By taking out alot of the bass\low mids from these tracks I've noticed that the bass gets more centred and is less is need of multiband compression, And it gives it more definition as there is no need for any eq boosts on high freqs, only subtractive EQing (which is alot more subtle).

    On this topic, anyone have any reccomendations for Stereo imaging EQ's? (im sure thats not their name, but it's kinda what they do... i think)
