Whenver I use overdrive and I record a guitar line, it's kinda just a blast of distiortion and you can barely here when the note changes. What would you guys recommend to mend this issue? What should my EQ settings be?
what are you using to record?
I plug my guitar straight into a mixer and record using Cubase.
try checking your soundcard settings on your computer...If your volume level is maxed turn it down a fair bit
turn your guitar volume down, adjust the tone on your guitar, use less distortion, if you can't hear when a note changes, then you probably need to take it down a bit
Less distortion and treble, MUCH less midrange. But you can kinda play with the mids some. I had a similar problem going from my guitar, to my solid state amp, to my 4 track tape recorder.
