Thanks for all the compliments guys! I think this is the most positive feedback I've ever gotten on any of my mixes...I must be improving

And Trent, I wondered about the high end too. But I don't have anything that even has close to a flat response, which makes it really hard to finely EQ stuff. On some speakers it sounds a touch trebly, another set it sounded fine and another set it was a bit on the bassy side

I'm really trying to get a good mic'd amp tone so I'm going to post a few links and ask you guys to give me some feedback .

1) http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1371004/1.mp3

Pres - 3
Bass - 6
Mid - 4
Treb - 5
Gain - 5

2) http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1371004/2.mp3

Pres - 4
Bass - 3
Mid - 5
Treb - 6
Gain - 5

-- They were recorded with a Mesa Boogie Roadster, a Orange 2x12 cab, and a Shure SM57 right off the cone. On channel 3 vintage voice.

Edit; just going for like a rock tone, the tracks are mono too.


Edit #2: Here's with some midi drums and double tracked
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1371004/3.mp3

Idk =\ if anyone could give me any advice it'd be great.

I thought the first tone was better, although I think it had too much bass to work really nicely in a mix. I'd probably keep everything how it is in the first one, but maybe take the bass down a notch or two. It sounds nice, but I'm just concerned that once you add a kick and bass it's gonna get a bit muddy how it is....

Just listened to your edit...it sounds nice, much better for being double tracked, which one was that recorded with? The mix sounds a bit thin...but get some bass and it should fatten up nicely...

I'll hopefully be hitting this thread up soon enough. Once my amp arrives, it's bass buying time. And finally, after that, a new recording set-up.

^It sounded funny like it was too middy or something. or maybe because there no bass track and drums so it sounds thin. Try lowering the mids and uping the bass a bit.

But in all seriousness, it's sounding pretty good. I might take out a bit of the mids and add a touch of gain but other than that I think it sounds good. Get it double tracked with some bass and drums and I think it'll sound really cool....do I smell a Greenday cover?

First of all, nice playing man. There was something odd about it that I can't quite place though...particularly on the muted triplets, I think you need some more gain on there, it sounded too dry. Other than that it sounded pretty nice. The leads aren't cutting quite right though, give them a boost somewhere around 3-7khz, add some reverb to thicken them a bit and then make them louder. Treat leads as if they were vocals and you should be in the right sort of area.

Oh, and get a bass track on there, will really help the guitars sound less thin

Upgrading gear and starting recording soon, the quad tracking is gonna be invaluable.

Oh and while I'm here, can someone crit my lead guitar sound on 'An Idea' on my profile? It's a cheap Behringer multi-fx so it sounds pretty digital, but how is it as far as EQing etc? It'd be better double tracked, but it was just a quick recording.

Dude, that lead sounds sick! Very Steve Vai sounding, nice work!

Also, you don't generally need to double track leads, they're a mono instrument. Unless you're making harmonies and stuff a single track should be fine.

Yeah I can't tell without drums/bass if i like it or not, and I can't record drums because I have a 1 preamp interface
