Great guide, but I can't see the diagrams for British, American and German amp voicing, not a big issue.

After I take a shower, I will head into my dungeon and record those warm, bright, thin and fat soudning clips. (Was that the 4 categories? I forgot )

Also, they're gonna have to be high-gain clips, as I dont know much outside of that :/

Yup, thanks

EDIT: How the hell do you use VSTi drums?

Anyone got any good sounding and EASY TO USE ones that are agressive enough for thrash? Or just good sounding ones with instructions on how to use them. I'm using reaper.

To be honest Mark, I didn't even see the part about post production effects....I read the first bit more or less and skimmed the rest.

Anyway, here are some tips, I don't know how useful they will be. http://acapella.harmony-central.com/showpost.php?p=11111132&postcount=3 Second half of that post.

Is it that confusing?
One of the regulars in this thread needs to add a VSTi drums thing... even though they have something like that in R&R, it's still confusing as hell. (I tried it, but didn't get past the download)

They sounded good to begin with..
Post in here, when you upload them, though!

You don't suck. You are quite good, actually.

You use them like any other plugin, put the .dll in the plugins folder and load it into your DAW.

Easiest I know is EZ drummer, but its not the best sounding. Doable, not best.

For shame! You should read the guides, it might take a bit but its a good read. Might have helped with your original question. I'll give those links you posted a read later, thanks for the suggestions.

Thanks guys

PS: I'm finally getting a Drum program this week Probably Addictive Drums.

Commented on them! Scream Aim Fire tone is by far the best, but its too loud and harsh. Experiment a bit with some selective cuts in the 3k-12k region

Very cool, classic rock/80s tune. Guitars sounded a bit thin here and there (mainly around 40 seconds). Lead volume could be a bit higher imo.



that where it goes from quad to only double tracked. I only quad tracked the "Chorus" parts.

That new clip EQing rocks, very very nice!

Steven slate is good, head a lot of good thigns about that

I saw the clips and they're cool! I'm going to give it a shot myself and see what I come up with. As for the EQing I was impressed with the Bright clip...but even more so with that new absolution clip.

I also sent you some of my CurveEQ files to **** around with, see if you can use them/improve them. If you do improve them be sure to send me

Quote by kylendm


How was this recorded? Sounds muffled and distant. Leads are to loud compared to the rhythm as well.

Bit more gain on the leads as well, sounds a bit dry as is. Rhythm has a nice growl to it though.

My favorite rhythm tone I've recorded so far.


Megaman is an automatic 5 stars to me man. Turn up the rhythm guitars, they are getting their ass kicked by the drums.

^Thanks for the comments man I didn't expect for "bright" to turn out good. All I did was take a Soldano X88 and put everything on 10 except for gain and bass which were at noon. Then I just added some some more treble with the built in EQ

Also, sense you wanted the Absolution CurveEQ file, why can't you just analyze it? theres no drums or bass in my clip at all. Just guitars. I would analyze it, but the computer Im using won't let me open Reaper. It keeps shutting Reaper down after 5 minutes of it trying to open :/

I recorded it with the mic halfway from the cone and the edge of the speaker.

I have no proper stand so it kinda just hung from the top of my amp head.

I used a bit of reverb from my holy grail to fill it up a bit.

The leads were a bit turned up too.

I might invest in a delay to make it sound just a little bit fuller.

More presence will be added to my next recording. But only a tad

Disturbed, your tone sounds really great in the mix, nice and thick, while still leaving the music to be heard.
