Hi all, Was wondering how you guys approach quad tracking when we're talking about very fast picked, palm muted, riffs? Everybody says to forget about quad tracking if you don't have tight guitar players, and I totally get that. However, for very fast riffs (think about, for example, the latest album, Virus of the Mind, by Starkill), I have a hard time conceiving that most "tight" players can acheive that? I don't consider myself as good as Jeff Loomis, but I think I am pretty "decent". Yet I doubt only the likes of Jeff Loomis can quad track right? We're about to record a song we wrote where the main rythm guitar plays a very fast palm muted E string (If I recall, it's 190 bpm, and I think 4th notes), for a long time (there is a lead guitar doing something on top, so it's not that boring!!!). I can't see how we'll be able to keep it tight for all the duration of the riff on 4 tracks, so I was wondering how do you guys approach this. Of course we're going to practice like hell to make is as tight as possible. But I am still not so confident.. maybe I am too much of a perfectionist, but I really think it needs to be perfect to sound awesome. Thanks for any help or advice.
