Hello, im relatively new to recording. Im trying to get a better guitar tone, im currently use Cubase 5 as my DAW and a pod hd(bean, not the floor unit). Im trying to achieve a tone similar to Ola englund http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yq0NIeOoiBI&feature=relmfu

So far i feel most of the distortion presets on the pod have not been to my liking, as they have the digital modeller flabbyness Here is a track i wrote 5 minutes ago, sorry about the quality and the playing, its been a long day haha. If you have any information on getting a tighter tone out of the pod etc, please reply

First of all, it's impossible to reach a head-amp's drive tone with any equipment. Don't forget; an amp's distortion sound is always the warmest and the strongest. You can not reach that tone with any other equipment - especially not with a digital setup.

But you can achieve a clear, warm, understandable and strong tone with your equipment. I did a similar thing with this setup: ESP Eclipse > Boss NS-2 > Computer > Adobe Audition > Amplitube 3 > Dynamic EQ > Compressor (from Guitar Rig). Ofcourse it all comes with a dead clear playing. If you don't mind shitty drum sound, here's my tryouts with that setup: http://soundcloud.com/sammetry

Don't try to get an amp's tone with any other equipment. But try to reach a similar quality with yours. And afterwards, try to get a hold of a kind of Mastering technique to boost your sound to good qualities.

Hope this helps. Keep up the good work!

your playing is tight. that is mud city though, big cut around 200-350Hz, and take out anything about 6kHz when tracking with a pod. anything above there is fizz city. low cut below 120Hz as well

what gain setting do you have? try around 2-3 (out of 1 to 10)

Closest you're going to get to a 6505 with an amp sim is the x50. Just run DI via your POD and check out: http://www.theserinaexperiment.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=86

Here's a heavy song I recorded using x50: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/16210823/Myth%20-%20Signals%203.mp3

Here's another that's similar stylistically to the clip you posted: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/16210823/ShinerWIP.mp3

If you want to use the POD amps, HPF around 100hz, notch out around 3khz and LPF around 9khz. POD tones are never on par with the actual tube amps they simulate, but POD tones are pretty easy to fit in mixes and people who aren't involved with music production will never know the difference.

Regardless of what you use to get your tone, the most important thing is making it fit the mix; you could have a killer guitar sound when it's playing alone, but as soon as you add everything else in, it may sound like shit.
