I want to record a song I have written that sounds a bit like August Burns Red.
We have already recorded drums. Sounds pretty ok.
Today we wanted to record guitars and failed hard.
Well, the breakdowns and chords sound quite ok. We doubled the tracks and recorded two slightly different guitar tracks.
Then we wanted to record the verse which has a typical metalcore riff like august burns red oder parkway drive play it. A rif consiting off single notes and palm muted bass notes on the low "e"-string. It's actually A#.
Now my setup:
AMP: Marshall TSL 60
Guitar: Gibson LP Studio with new 0.13 to 0.56 D'Addario strings
Now,... how in the world can i get a proper sound with that equipment?
What amp setting do you recomend?
What are the things i should check?
Where should i place the mics?
I know, I can't really get a sound like ABR oder PWD, I just named those band so you know what I am talking about.
Would be great if you could help.
thanks - David (from austria)
