The most important thing to always keep in mind: what does it sound like? If it sounds good, why change it? Don't feel like you have to do something just because its conventional.
And when you turn the guitar horizontally to play it, remember that strings that heavy will sag just like bridge cables...
Hey, it COULD happen...
I guess what to gather from this is that really its personal preference; you can use thinner strings with lower tunings and still have success as you can see here, some people are using a .54 on the Drop A# and others a .68
Man, I use 12-54 for dropped A# with baroness stuff. I've actually gotten my EC-1000 to have decent tension in A# with .11-.49 with a wound third.
You can just slap some heavier gauge strings on and go to town
Will have to redo the setup though
I'd recommend 12-56 gauge to play that low
Hi mate, thanks. I used a mic'd amp for the guitars. I'm not sure which part you mean re room recording? There was a little reverb on the amp settings and a very small amount added during mastering, but not much. The rhythm tracks generally consist of 2 parts, each doubled so 4 guitars total- might explain the reverb effect you are describing?
I finally finished this one last night (Australia time...12hrs ago). The remake of my first "epic" written and 1st recorded in 1999. This time it has natural string arrangements and a bit of a slap line around the 3-4 minute mark.
I've never heard of risecore before, but if that was it, then holy crap. Blistering and tight. Your tone was perfectly harsh and cutting. The drums did come across as being a little artificial in their sound, but that is minor. Good melodics in the solos, however I felt they were being over powered by the backing riff. What axe are you swinging in this piece?
Please check out my new piece.
Nice opening which set the tone nicely for the first riff, which was great. The ruff around 0:24 was also good although some of the rests sounded artificial and edited. I may be doing you a disservice but they ought to be smoothed out. The kick drum throughout is quite clicky and could do with some eq'ing. These are fairly minor issues as overall I think it is a good listen and once these issues are sorted and some vocals added it could sound huge.
Is this track accessible in any other way than drop box? Soundcloud, Bandcamp, Youtube...
I just found this thread (from the bump above) and I think it's a good thread. Is it just guitar tones from recording/mixing, or any tones at all? I think it would be rad if we used it as a "Quick Questions" kind of thing just for "how do I sound better" threads.
Neat. The intro hit me like a rock. Nice guitar tones too. Do you have the strings playing while the drums/bass/guitar are going as well? It might be rad if you added those in there if not. Also, sounds a little tad bit bass heavy, but maybe bump up the levels of everything else? But neat nonetheless c:

General thoughts on the mix please!
ohh man, it says "not available in your country" ??
Awesome playing. \m/
You've got some great songs here. I really dig a lot of the riffs and the songs themselves never get boring. They're very cohesive and I like that you try to maintain a sense of melody even during the heaviest sections. I also thought the effects/sounds you added in "New Song" were pretty cool. I feel like these songs would be really fun to play.
The overall production is quite good in my opinion. I like the guitar tones especially. However (and this applies to all of the songs), the cymbals seem overly bright and inconsistent at times. By inconsistent, I mean they sometimes sound as if they get cut off unnaturally when they should be resonating (a good example of this would be at around 3:25 in Stargazers). Though if this is intentional then you may disregard that point. Also, the mix itself sounds a bit thin. Maybe more bass would help it sound more "full"?
Other than those small things, I thought you did a great job. I look forward to hearing more.
AxSilentxLine, that's epic!
Just curious, but is your Armageddon running into an Orange Closed-Back 4x12 with V30's?
It makes me want to fire up my Vengeance and bring the pain!
Which, btw, I now run a boost (Hardwire CM-2) in front of, and I cannot believe the massive difference it made in terms of response alone. I never understood it when I would see/hear about people boosting a 5150/6505 considering the massive amounts of Gain those amps are capable of, but nothing really matches the response you get when you have an OD on in front of an amp. I'm starting to see why the guys behind the JCM900/Blackstar thought their shenannigans would be a good idea
I mean, they were still wrong, but I can see where it might have started with good intentions
My band should have a finished EP any day now, which I, of course, used my Vengeance on, although this was before I bought the CM-2. I'll post some links once I have them.
Can anyone crit my mix on this? Just seeing what I can do with a bedroom setup.
I recorded this song today: it's a thrash metal song with some generic 'heavy' riffs that I made purely to test a new guitar and bass tone... I put most of my time in the sound of this song rather than the song itself, so I'd like to get some comments on my mix and how I could improve it :-)
Thanks for reading this, leave a comment on any Soundcloud song or this thread and I'll be sure to check some of your stuff out, cheers!
I recorded the bass through an interface and used VST amps for it. The guitar was recorded with a Peavey 6505 112+ combo amp: I plugged the FX send into my interface and used Impulse Responses to simulate a cabinet. The drums are programmed.
