This is mostly a question for Brandon but advice from anyone would be great. I have often read Brandon suggestin that for a really heavy guitar sound, you can double the guitar tracks and pan them wide. Does this mean, have the guitarist record their part twice on two different tracks, or does this mean that the person doing the mixing can duplicate a single guitar track and pan the two identical recordings wide?
My band, which I do most of my recording for, is known for only having one guitar where most bands in our genre usually have two and I want to perserve the sound of only one guitar playing at all times. As a result, I am hesitant to have my guitarist record his part twice.
