Hello friends. My name is Teo. I'm a rookie home studio producer for metalcore and this is my first thread here. So please be gentle To begin with I have a Peavey Vypyr VIP 2 for amp and I like its sound very much. So I got myself a Shure SM57 in order to record the amp. The problem is that the sound I am getting is a bit muddy and not in your face sound I was hoping for. I read a lot of post and tutorials on how to mic an amp and placed the mic on axis just a bit out of the cone. But the results where not as I was hoping for. I mean I managed to get the sound I wanted with vst plugins but wanted to record my guitars with the amp and mic so I won't have the digitalness that vsts are giving. Any advice guys because I don't know if it is my mic placment or the amp that is just not good enough for this purpose. And thank you very much for reading my post.
