Critic my recording guys, I'm fairly new at it and got my toneport a few weeks ago and I'm really starting to explore with it. maybe a little too much blink.gif

Mind the technique as well blink.gif Ooooh really got to work on it!

I would like to know about the rendering process. Do you render with the quality set "high" and what is the R3 Mix? And also the resample rate. I used "best" but not sure if thats the "Best" sound.

Thanks for the help guys. smile.gif

I used a piece out of Smells and myself beg/adv collab to play around with

THere's too much distortion and the sound is flat and muddy on riffs. On lead it's better. Still buzzing but okay.

yup I just spoke to you about what tone you used laugh.gif meant to add in to my last PM that thats one of the tones I use for lead, I`ve got a tone that has much less gain for rhythm

Thanks guys!

I'll throttle back on the distortion. Gonna try your preset Smells.

Heres a take using your preset Smells. I think its my cheap Dell speakers thats throwing me off.

The first part is with the n/pup. Second is with bridge.

yea theres not huge amounts of gain on that tone, thats possibly whats throwing you off as well,

Still a tadge "flat" sounding, maybe wanna add a tiny bit of reverb to it, but if you listen here https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=12457 on post number 9 its that very same tone you`ve just recorded with that I`ve used on that track. pups, the guitar itself, strings etc are gunna play a part in altering the tones between person to person, so you may need to do a bit of tweaking, but gives you a decent base to work off of, I`d say the distortion level is a lot better tho smile.gif
