    Noticed you’re using the new fortin nts, do you like it? I’m thinking about getting it, I love the tone you’ve got from it. Mind sharing your presets for it?

    This is the Teemu Mäntysaari solo preset. I just changed the mic position a littlebit and added a bit more treble.

    The plugin is really cool. It's not so 'big' and doesn't has that versatility the big ones have (like BIAS Fx, Revalver or Toontrack). There isn't even any kind of fx like a delay or reverb, but the good thing is, that you don't have to EQ anything. Just start the standalone, take your guitar and play. It sounds great. But if you want, you can load other impulse files or mics into it.

    The only thing what I don't really like is, that the complete thing is a bit bassy (but that could also be because of my guitar) and I miss that aggressive/hard tone you can get out of an Engl, Peavey or Kemper, Axe Fx,... that typical Hatebreeder/Halo of Blood/RRF tone. The whole sounds a bit "soft".

    I know it's completely off topic and I'm sure you guys will tell me.

    But recorded a cover of All That Remains - Six if anyone is interested.

    :)

    First attempt using Fortin NTS. Got busy so video and audio are recorded a couple of weeks apart, so some may or may not match perfectly

    Guitars and keys are pretty good, but the vocals and especially the drums sound a bit out of place.

    Yeah, I saw the same thing. The cover is really not enjoyable because of the horrible drums and singing...

    COB songs that could pass for Megaman songs have always been the best.

    Am I actually the only one who thinks that ths kind of "songs" sounds like shit, that it has nothing to do with the real, good old 8 bit music from the 80s and 90s and that even the midi player from guitar pro sounds better? Damn, even Joonas' songs got more of an 8-bit music feeling than this one.

    It might be the new stuff is leaning on a heavy guitar sound more than the old albums, so there’s less pressure to write epic leads and harmonious stuff or even simple rhythm riffs (which sound better in 8-bit). You might argue that ’limiting the bits’ puts your musical creativity to a test, keeping in mind of course what sounds good in 8-bit still needs to be rich enough to sound full ’on stage’.

    I was hesitating to analyze Bodom with Megaman soundtracks (it would get really long and deep), but they share something very similar in the vibe of the melodies, both being very beautiful but still pumped with adrenaline in many different ways, Bodom is just the darker version. And what’s common about them is playing guitar-written stuff on keyboard.

    To the guitarists: I haven't played guitr for months and need to fix my neck. Can you:

    - tell me the distance between your E and e string and the neck on 12th fret? I used to have a really short distance and I'm at 2mm atm but for some reason it feels really weird to play now

    - tell me the distance between th E string and 7th fret when you press the string on 1 and 13th fret? My neck is really flat and needs to be bend a bit.

    I have around 2 mm on the low E and 1,5 mm on the high E at the 12th fret, and half a credit-card or so (0,5 mm perhaps?) between the 7th fret and the low E string when pressing down the 1st and 17th fret (Don't have my guitar with me at the moment so I can't try what it'd be with the 1st and 13th fret).

    I may record Soon Departed next week, then I'm off to Asia for a few weeks. And since my last cover is... I doin't know... 6 months back or so, here are two short snippets.
