I wanna know how your can master the guitars like Adam D, i was thinkin a two-way guitar cable to 2 different amps, in two different rooms, and with a micorphone to each of them? please tell if i'm correct!

I just want that "big" tone he always manages to get when he produces a Killswicth or other bands album.

try double or quad tracking, and panning.

i've done that, but sometimes, its particularly hard on some songs to get timing bang on on the second time. any other ways? gear? techniques? other than extensive EQ-ing

Not to be harsh, but if that's the issue, it's a timing and technique thing. Double tracking, and occasionally quad tracking is the way to do it. If you can't play the song in time twice, you either haven't practiced the song enough, or need to work on timing.

fair do'sm i'veo nly tried at home, and its only on a few songs that are dodgey. but its also tedious. but if thats what needed to do a good song, i'm up for it

Are you playing to a click? If you're not then shame on you!
If you are and still struggling, you may need to practice playing to a click more

i don't use a click, i just plug head phones in, and listen to myself, i can keep in time well, its just tedious on the fast parts. when we do a proper recording, we always record drums, playing guitar into headphones before laying everything else down.

Play to a click then - noone's timing is perfect, and noone can replicate exactly the same thing twice at the exact same times; using a click track gives your ears something to focus on and a beat to lock to.

ok with the timing and all, but is pretty much quad tracking the way to go for it?

Quad tracking, even more maybe, five tracks is what i do, sometimes even 7 or 8 tracks. If you are finding getting it tight enough hard, then you could cut a few bits so it fits better with any program that lets you do that. all you have to do is cut a tiny half second sometimes and it sounds perfect.

ok sweet, do you keep the EQ teh same? or use the same amps? i know Adam D uses a combination

That's entirely up to you, and what sound you want to achieve. All that using a variety of amps does, is effect the dominant frequencies you can hear from the guitar tracks, thus altering the tone you're achieving overall.

I just double track with my amp to be honest, and the other guitarist double tracks his part on his amp and when my parts are panned one way and his the other it gives a complementary sound (in my opinion).

Always play to a click, or drums at least.

Yeah, i use Guitar Rig 3 so when i double track 5 times, i have on the left and right the same Bogner Uberschall amp sim, on the half way left and right, i have a Mesa Boogie amp sim and in the middle i have either another Bogner Uberschall amp sim or a Marshall. When i do more than 5 tracks, it does get a bit muddy, i have recently been using less, like 3 or 2 tracks instead of 5 or 7.
