Hi there folks.

I need some help. I've been trying to get a sound like a7x with my gear. Using a Synyster Standard guitar, Vox Tunelab LE and Transtube Bandit 112. But I never get a sound that is near a7x. I know that I need equipment worth thousands of dollar to get a sound like they have.
But I would appreciate it very much if anyone could help me with what settings I could use on my gear. Any info at all would be great. Like what Pedal I should use or AMP, cab, Mod, delay, reverb and they settings for all effects like how much Drive, Gain, Tone or Treble and etc.
And by the way I mostly need help with settings to the Tonelab. But setting up the Bandit would help too.
Hope some kind soul can help me

Thank you /Andriiaz

lots of distortion and overdrive...

They use uberschalls, and their tone is very similar to that signature deep,bassy,thick and rich tone of a Mesa Dual rec. Look into it.
No ego-inflating quotes nor stupidly long signatures to be found here.

Move along.

Heavily saturated british tone with lots more bottom end.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

Synster's main tone is a Marshall with a Boss Compressor in front of it. He also uses a delay pedal but he says himself it does not matter what brand.

Are you talking about those weird sphincter-spasms where it feels like there's a ghost dick in your ass for a little while and then it just disappears?

They sound very MID -y on nightmare. Specially on stuff like natural Born killer and go hates us. They seem to have less distortion on that album, bit much justs a tad less.

Just kidding! I do not dislike them. I am, however, a big fan of owl316's work.

EDIT: But for real, the same guys makes fun of several of my favourite bands; they're all joke vids. How can you say you love a band if you can't laugh at it among other things?

i'm sorry, but was that supposed to be funny? it looked like something a 4th grader does when he discovers "Write n' Talk" software and movie maker.

If you're going to make fun of a band, at least have the balls to use your own voice.

*i'm not defending A7x in any way, but seesh.

U mad bro? He makes fun of Metallica, Slayer, Nirvana, Iron Maiden, and a multitude of other bands. Metallica is, I daresay, my favourite band ever, and I laugh every time I hear his commentary. My point is it is funny. It wouldn't have the same effect if he just talked shit about them; no, a Microsoft product did it. Sorry you didn't enjoy the show. Try the Kanye West or Fall Out Boy vids if you only like hearing trash about artists you don't like.

I actually do have contributions to make here as well.

The tone is a popular hi-gain yet crisp and clear sound. Keep those drop tuned strings relatively tight and fatten up a nice British voicing (There are lots of pedals and amps that offer a British sound). Hope you find something acceptable to you. Also remember, studio tone is impossible to recreate for many bands without a, you know, studio, so focus on live tone when tweaking and experimenting.
