So ive been rocking away recording at home for a while now. I was hoping some of yous 80s legends on here, could give me some hint on how to get that 80s production sound.
Im running cakewalk sonar 8 preoducer edition , 2 alesis mk1 mk2s.
New charvel > ISP Decimator > ADA 3TM > G major > mesa 2:90 > Mesa rectifier 2x12
When recording i dropout the 2:90 and cab and use a ADA Microcab to go direct.
My question isssss , HOW DO I GET THAT RICH 80s SOUND !? With all this equipment , im getting some excellent sounds , ala www.myspace.com/esotericdawn
- yet i still cant get that 80s sound.
I know a lot of it is down to you composing and playing technique, buit i dont find the problem coming from there, its getting the actual tones - For example , checkout the intro clip on this youtube vid http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_H7Lb...eature=related
that guitar sound i cannot get , and the general big reverbed sound , compression techniques etc. I use Addictive Drums , but in a way dont know what im looking for to get the 80s drumsound...
Anyone with ANY input is welcomed , if you suggest technoques i can use on my computer, or actual hardware compressors etc , i need to knowwwww
