    My friend gave me a his project to mix and arrange a little bit. When I started listening to it, everything seemed to be OK, except for the guitars. They were recorded through a ZOOM processor and to say they sounded awful would be an understatement. The obvious choice would be to re-record them, but I was wondering is there anyway to make them sound at least slightly better without having to rr it. Here is a single rythm guitar clip:

    Thanx in advance and cheers,

    Hi there!

    Grrr, I used to record with Zoom Processors a long time ago. Horrible sound for recording guitars.
    Anyway, the file is in pretty a bad shape and I don't think you will come to a good result there. However I tried to work on it for a little while and by using a 24 band EQ with it, came to this result:

    Don't know if it is any better really. I just tried to reduce these tons of white noise over 6 KHz, cut the unecessary bass-sound beneath 250 Hz and added a lot of gain to the lower mids and mids at 300 Hz and from ca.400 to ca. 1000 Hz with a pike at 800 Hz.

    Hopefully you have a nice bass track to drown(sp) out those GTR's...
    I put it through voxengo curve eq on my 'clayman' setting, then into pristine space then curve eq again...not as manual as Kosh's effort but it sorta sounds ok...just

    It starts off with the original for a sec then fades to the EQ'd one for comparisons sake.
