iv'e been desperately trying to achieve the tone which you got on the canon rock video which is basically the reason i joined gmc because i made such excellent progress with your lesson but i was no where near able to get that song nailed down. now its been a couple of month and i wanted to see how far did i go and i got a pod and im trying to get your tone.

this is what you wrote you used

Cubase SX 3.0 (Daw)

Toontrack Superior (Drums)

Trilogy (Bass)

Waves SSL (Compressor)

Hardware: Guitar:

Jackson SLSMG

Amp: Marshall JMP-1 (OD 2 channel with gain on 90%, bass and treble on high and

mid almost on zero). The amp is connected straight into my soundcard with no

additional processing.


i found the pod equivalent of your jmp 1 and i dont know if you can or how you change channels in the pod but i put the gain to 90 and the bass treble and middle to what you said, i dont know what to do with the presence.
what did you put on you compressor? how much threshold and how much gain? and another thing i noticed at least in 4:11 of the song you can clearly hear delay did you use it all the way or just there cause its almost like you can hear in a couple of places but in others i cant quite hear it (edit: after some hearing and re hearing ive come to the conclusion that you use delay all the way(though my ear is very untrained i might be mistaken) so how many ms feedback and mix should i put?)

im sorry im being such a pain but i have been spending a whole day fiddling with virtual nobs and getting nowhere. of course im not expecting to get your tone with a squire and a multieffect but im not getting anywhere near. any help would be much appreciated.

And thanks! It's really nice to hear you've found the lesson so useful! smile.gif

On my JMP i've set the presence to 6 (which is max). Not sure why i havent put that in the description. I'll do that from now on.
I dont use any compressors directly on the guitar-tracks, i just put a compressor on the allaround mix of the song to enhance every instrument, so it's kinda difficult to say what the equivalent settings would be on a direct guitar-compressor.

And you heard right, i did use a delay on the lead-tracks on that lesson.
I use a software delay thats integrated in Cubase (DoubleDelay).
I've set the time to 1/4th of the of the BPM (200bpm in this case) which would according to my calculation be the same as 300 ms delay and the mix is set to 15%.

Hope this helps smile.gif

well, crap. no wonder i can't get that sorta delay. my pedal only goes up to 200 ms delay i do believe. but perhaps my amps effects will do it....i'll have to see. But yeah, i've tried to get your tone with my stuff i use, but it's still not the same of course. I think i'm close though.
