Well basically im trying to recreate an old song my band made but I cannot figure out how to make the virtual guitars sound like this, I don't know the first thing about doing such. Im using ReFX Slayer 2 and im stumped. Any tips or ideas? Thank you

Definitely not a technique question, probably suited to Recordings so moved

sound like this

Like what?

Virtual guitars almost always sound terrible (see: Guitar Pro's "Realistic" Sound Engine), just because of all the things that need to be simulated to get a decent tone. I tried using Slayer for a couple demos, and it sounded ass. I ended up just going back to the default midi sounds.

Not even.


oh i dunno, i think it could work in some "unce unce" techno where the guitars don't even sound like guitars. that's probably what the use case for slayer was, unce unce.

It's status as a Electro DAW is kind of unfounded these days, there have been so many updates since then.

What.
What EDM are you listening to that has guitars that "don't even sound like guitars"? Any time guitars are used in EDM, they're usually acoustics for texture. Slayer is (supposed to be) for a metal tone.

Yeah, FL Studio can do most types of music really well, but Image-Line's plugins are definitely electronic-oriented. Their synths mostly lean towards the synthetic type of sounds, and Slayer (as mentioned) and Hardcore (guitar distortion/fx), which are their token "metal" plugins, are just bad.

i dunno, i purposely used 'techno' as a trashier word for electronic music. i'm pretty sure BT has done something with metal-sounding guitars before though.

When EDM does employ electric guitars like described, they are often real guitars.

Daft Punk - Digital Love for example:
Guitar sounds not much like a guitar, but is actually a real guitar playing the solo, then mixed with effects. They became pretty much famous for that.

In Fact their latest album is considered full on EDM, but uses ONLY real instruments (w/e that means, I'd called it "performed instruments"). It's considered sort of an ode to early techno, though I don't like it that much.

Prodigy (live) uses real drums, and a real guitar player.

Pendulum is more D&B than rock, but still uses real guitar's and bass.

Oh I am bored so I wanted to rage a little.

gah, if you insist on only acknowledging "good" electronica then forget i said anything.

i thought "unce unce" was what you say when you mean bad techno?

hmmm maybe.

Since all these americans are doing hip with EDM and artists.

You guys are so virginy in this

It's funny, dance parties here are as normal as fkin mcdonalds, and even metalheads and rockers listen to electronic music.

Maybe it's becausee weee have so many famous (good) dj's.

Just aside: For those who say that techno is just "unts unts", try making it yourself.. try making a repetitive song which is not boring, do the mixing, do the mastering, etc etc.. all by yourself.

I'm making all kinds of music, and believe me, electronic music is one of the hardest to make I've personally dealt with.

(of course you have mainstream shitty house-artists, just like you have millions of shitty mainstream rock and metal artists)

Guess you missed the part that says "not a Guitarist" so I can't simply plug a guitar into an interface. Although I wish I could
