    I really hate MOP tone :lol:

    I think i found myself a PERFECT Metalcore guitar just now :lol: Schecter C-1 Hellraiser. It's affordable and looks nice in terms of components/looks. I feel for a fixed bridge now i think for the tuning flexibiility and the simpliness. Ive heard Schecters kick ass...true/not true?

    Hey guys i need some Input, I am messing around writing and recording some tunes for my new melodic death band I'm putting together.
    Im messing around with different guitar tones and with different drum samples

    Here are two versions of the same song, On Mix2 the Rhythm guitar tone is different and also the Kick and Snare drum samples.

    Mix1:

    Mix2:
    http://media.putfile.com/Lowberg-New-song-revalver-mix

    Let me know what Guitar tone, kick drum, and snare drum you like better.

    I like Mix2 better for guitars and snare but im not really happy with the kick sample on either

    I need your help guys.

    As I got my pc back I'll soon start to reccord my things for my project Norfmentis. On the contrary of what you can hear on the MySpace, the project is really oriented on the guitars.
    You may know that or not, I'm alone on that project so I'm doing everything by myself with what what I have, but I really want to create the effect that it's a real band reccording and I want the double panoramic guitar (One to the left, one to the right) like it would be two guitarist.

    I want to know what I could do? For information, both will be reccorded with the same guitar (so, same pickup). I'm using a pedal for the tone, I'm not using any amps (directly to the pedal then to the computer).

    Should I use the same settings for both? Or change the EQ? Change the Distortion or the Amp emulated? I will obviously not play he riffs the same way for both guitars, I've developped to way of playing, more or less (in a certain way...).

    I will test the things to see what works, what isn't. Sure I could find and settle this by myself, but I'm sure you know that there's so many possibilities it's easy to get lost.

    try to get a different tone with each guitar so they complement each other. and keep the gain down, even though it wont sound br00tal with one guitar with both tracks on it'll mesh real well, because if you have a lot of gain on each track itll get mushy etc.

    Yeah, that's what I want to achieve, but as I said it's a bit complicated and needs a lot of experiments - something that I will sure do, but as I said I wanted to have a base to start with. I've got a good ear and know what I want to get as sound, but I've dropped Guitars for like 2 years and I'm back on it since some month, and I'm not totally into gears and technical sounding hings about it, so.

    Thanks for the gain thing by the way. An obvious thing but I didn't thought about that, can save me a lot of testing time :lol:

    My recomendation is low gain, same tone for both, 100% panning and using some sort of noise reduction/click supressor/hiss reducer AFTER recording (CEP is teh king for that IMO). If they are both rythm guitars same tone gives a sense of unity IMO. That's what I do at least and what I'll be doing for my band's demo. For leads a bit more gain on guitar and maybe a bit more bass depending what you want, and if it's just one track I always like to put a small amount of chorus (the default chorus on CEP works great for my taste).

    I agree that it already looks pimpin' as is, but if you have to change it I personally favor an oldschool paintjob like Cooley's in this video:

    Looks awesome as it is imo. But if you are going for a paint change I think a darkish/satin purple would look amazing. :loco:

    Awesome!

    I've wanted a yellow guitar for some time now, you should really keep it as it is.
