    Hey guys,

    Listen to this: (careful, it auto plays)
    http://www.goear.com/listen/d80ef4c/test-s

    And tell me, is this coming from tubes or from an amp sim? What do you think?
    It's double tracked 100L/100R.

    Have a nice day.

    It has that incredibly grainy 4-6khz range that's only really there on amp sims.

    It doesn't really matter where it's coming from. It sounds like you're killing a cat by smothering it with a guitar.

    If you are going to double track make sure you play tight. My ears are getting pulled all over the place, left , right, left , right. Track it tighter, as far as tone goes i would worry about that once the parts are tight. I'd rather have a single track than a sloppy double track.
