    Just wanted to know what u guys about this guitar tone: https://soundcloud.com/rtr-records/new-song-drop-g-wip
    I tried to make a tone similar to Periphery and I The Breather especially. I made a EQ tone match with Ozone of one of the songs on the first Periphery album and then created an IR of the tone match EQ. Then i added another TS so my Pod farm chain is like this: NS - TS - NS - TS - NS - Treadplate - Compressor. And then i loaded keFir with my custom IR and some post EQ'ing. I used very little drive on the TS and Amp, since the two TS's boost the signal so much u barely need any :)

    Thx guys!
    benjy: I could send you the IR if you want, but the IR is made with my guitar so it will probably not sound the same with your guitar, maybe if you have the same pick ups though (EMG 81-7). The Pod farm preset is not that special, just try what i mentioned.

    Habsburgs: Letter Experiment, the intro with only guitars.

    Guitars sound a little too metallic for my taste but it sounds good. And is it justo or are your drums a little off center? Sounded like you have them panned about 15% to the right.

    Sounds cool. Watch out for that sub at 0:14. Ducks everything, and then it starts getting louder.

    Bay Studio: Yeah i noticed that my guitars got lowered in volume for several seconds after the first bass drop, lowered the volume on the bass drop with 4 dB and it fixed it :)

    musicman61554: I dont really remember the name on the VST but i used a plugin that comes with reaper that generates a sine wave. I then made different drops for different tunings and automated the pitch to get the sound i liked. I also used MaxxBass which makes the low freqs more audible and makes the bass "thicker" i think. There are tutorials on how to do this in reaper, or u could just download this: http://www.freesound.org/people/kenster117/sounds/138356/ It sounds good and is treated with MaxxBass.

    Thanks Gujukal, I use Sonar x2 and its a little difficult to get a great bass drop through it so I use Massive but I loved your drop.

    I've already posted what i used, its basically two tube screamers and treadplate amp head. It's the IR that makes most of the tone.
