I intend to record my guitars via a Pod Hd to a computer. When I am dialing in tones to record (metal by the way) how should I treat delay and reverb? I established a sound that I think sounds good by itself, that has a bit of delay and reverb. When I start multitracking is this going to create a nightmare when doubling tracks? Should I be adding reverb and delay after?
I would add them after if you're multi-tracking guitars
Rhythm should be pretty clean. I record it dry, with no effects. Leads definitely have some tho.
I'd recommend to record without any effects that aren't an important part of the sound. You can never remove effects you have recorded, but you can remove/change them if you've put them there afterwards.
Ok thanks that what I thought
