Lets talk about tones.
December 13, 2014
Hello again there lovely people! Today we're gonna talk about how I go the sounds I did for the last video. Getting the main guitar sounds were fairly straight forward as the Eleven Rack was all that was used fir the recording process, with a few plugins applied after to add a little more color to it. So lets get into it shall we.
So the Eleven Rack was the main tone generator as I mentioned earlier, and I really do find that it works better for classic, clean, and crunchy tones that it does for ultra high gain stuff, but that’s just me. The patch I came up with for this was one that had an emphasis on versatility, with a few odd choices in there that worked well with the guitar I used. Speaking of guitar, the one I sued it a tele knockoff what has a very cool pick up configuration. With two lipstick single coil pick ups and a very hot humbucker the tonal options I have are quite varied.
The main line in the video, which is the rhythm, was using the neck pick up with the tone about half way down, running through a vintage Bogner, EQ, compressor, and reverb but what makes it sound really fat was that it was using an 8x10 bass cab model. I did that because using a dingle coil tends to sound a bit thin and with it being just the guitar I wanted to make it as big as possible.
And for the lead lines, for each one I used a different pick up and adjusted the volume and tone for it. The first lead line uses the same patch but with some chorus and stereo delay, and the pickups in use are the neck and middle. The next line is the same patch but using the middle and bridge pickup with the volume and tone turned up a little more. On the last harmony line I turned up the distortion more, which is a white boot based on the Xotic RC Booster, with the volume and tone turned way down, each time the phrase repeats the volume and tone get turned up more and more so on the final pass its got a good amount of saturation to it.
As for the editing in post that was done, I used a few waves plugins specifically the REDD console, the VEQ4, Scheps 73, and the Monster Boost by P&M. And that's it, again nothing revolutionary but it sounded good to me and I was happy to share it with everybody. If you made it this far thanks for that and as always, like, comment, and Subscribe.
