Word...Hey Guys check out this lead tone..

It's an xt

I want you to tell me if it s a good tone or a bad tone..
It's a remix of Bed5

http://65.254.79.230/bed5.mp3

What I did was doubled the tracs ,took out the highs on 2 of them and added bass,add different delays on the bass tracs and left the originals alone.
you can really hear the legato part in the middle,the bass and mids drag behind the highs,resulting in a big fat tone

Let me know if this Sounds Pro...

Re: Word...Hey Guys check out this tone..

Sounds alright to me, are you using the neck pickup? Kinda sounds like it to me ears (ya know, bassy, kinda midrangey without a lot of treble)

Also, was that just a long solo or just diddling? lots of hi-notes, I was looking forward to some chugga chugga riffer madness

Re: Word...Hey Guys check out this tone..

sounds great, the tone is a bit EVH, what kind of gear/signal path did you use?

Re: Word...Hey Guys check out this tone..

Thanks Red 5,

I Had the Atomic for a few months,I tried 3 or 4 mics and none could match the direct recording,when you mic a cab you have to worry about the speaker,mic,where you place the mic,room ,even the cables ,oh my god my head is hurting just thinking about it..and it still wont be as clear as direct.

But direct is the way to go...for leads anyway...I am starting to learn rhythm guitar and recording it..

JoeyDahlia

Can you hear the difference between the 2 types of recording?

Direct or Thru Air?

Re: Word...Hey Guys check out this tone..

Direct recording with a preamp such as the xt is the easy way of getting decent tones with very little work.....

BUT, if you know what you are doing and have access to good mics and pre's....you cant touch a warm expressive tube amp tone miced up. Those preamps dont react to your playing like a tube amp does.....

Just food for thought

Not on my laptop :P

But if you mic a tube amp properly, it defeinitely is the best. You can capture the sound of being in the room with it. I usually use a mix of mics, one close to it and one a few feet away and that sounds great. If you mic it poorly or miss the speaker by an inch, that's another story. But it's a pain in the ass as well.

You pulled it off nicely and much easier and quicker and you don't have to worry about noise either.

Lemmy, I think I am getting better recording ,I really like my XT.

Do you think a tube pre amp before my XT or even after my XT will work..

So I am still going direct ...

What ya think??
