I for one agree 100% with you for what its worth. A little tough love is never any harm
Either method works really, its more an establishing of authority thing really, whether you establish it by being an asshole or by presenting yourself as a qualified leader matters little. The former my way or the highway attitude can obviously cause problems with bands telling other bands you're a dick or not coming back to you or whatever.
wouldn't turn down the amp gain, as I have said, the sound is 100% obviously post-speaker. And you are mixing terminologies, that top end clipping is not what you would call sizzle, sizzle is just having enough high end to hear it decently.
I wouldn't bash on a spider, they are pretty bad ass little amps for the price and can't quite get the tone from any amp in that range minus maybe a spider valve, modded peavey windsor or valveking until you get up to the big bad boys like the rectos and 5150 (and even the more expensive amps)
get DI tracks of the guitars when you are also recording the guitars, then when the leave, reamp your amps the way you find fit, and replace it with the old takes, I wouldn't even tell them, I would say something like I did some eq and compression work to make it fit the mix better and if they are as dumb as most will be, they won't tell jack shit for a difference, if they do, pull out the old track and do a blind test and have them pick.
yes your right
im just used to my amps (mesa orange peavey)
if you look at it like that then yes, they are great. but how he was boasting about his tone, it was kind of lame.
there was no mids... no body to it
just an ice pick sound, if that makes sense at all
but i will definitely take all of your tips and put them to the test
they all seem fucking awesome
I would also buy a book which gives you a lot of inside in what each tool is doing....this realy helps.
When I was 16 and bought my first books I was so damn pissed because nobody ever wrote some good starting points for compression and eq´s and stuff like this.
4 Years later I realized that there are no holy grails or stuff like that in the audio-engineering bizz.
You just have to cover your track now the technics behind some nobs you turn....
In germany we have this book called TONTECHNIK written by thomas Goerne. This book is like a bible for audio-engineering. I dont know if it is released outside germany so....
But check this guy THOMAS GOERNE is the shit
If you want awesome guitars and in-depth explanation of how to achieve it in an entertaining way - Slipperman's Recording Distorted Guitars Thread From Hell
oh shit lol
my uncle JUST mentioned a guy with a similar name the other day:|
it may be the same guy your talking about :O
cause we were talking about engineering and how there is some great literature that helps alot.
i will definitely check out some of his shit ^^
Ampex SVX is (N)
LePou is (Y)
Sorry to double post,
But man, why would you ask that? it would have taken less time to just -try- it than to type it out.
I'm not having a go at you, but c'mon!
But you play the part so well
Untill Jeff comes in here and shits on everyone and makes you look disney
I hope he stays, reads all the threads and stickies and lurks. That's what I'm doing. Saves my butt from some stretching. Even in this thread there's already a bunch of useful information.
Just listened to the second version with headphones. I'm hearing amp buzz in the staccato parts.
I'd make the double tracked guitars even more tight.
Very sparse, kinda uninteresting, needs texture and movement going on in the background or something. Vocals aren't going to be enough.
I totally agree.
i checked lepou out
its sounds good for guitar from the clips i heard
is there bass presets aswell or something?
cause at first it just looked like an ENGL sim for guitar
ands its for pc only
i use mac
i think the ampeg svx is cool though
dude I liked your clip,
btw there seems to be an epidemic of bunched panties lately
granted lowpass IS pretty much neophyte stuff
ain't no bunched panties up in this topic, just a bunch of guys speaking the truth.
You said it yourself, lowpass is neophyte shit. He should already know this, I don't see where "panties in a bunch" comes into it haha
i get what both of you are sayings
lol but i just dont get why people care so much that i
didnt know the terminology for low passing lol
sure it makes me look like an idiot
and thanks alot, wolfhalen, for your comment
glad you like it
I love your new addition to the Audio Engineering Bible!
terminology is very important because it shows that you know both what a tool is and how to use it. Its very unearving when you go to a studio and the engineer doesn't know the terminology. It makes the client or anyone around them believe that the engineer will also not be able to use that gear correctly if he doens't even know what it is called.
It just seems like a lack of education that is a requirement for the field.
I admire your phrasing and restraint.
