Re: Guitar tone sounds harsh and boxy

Thank you for the suggestions. Wow, I didn't know neither Airwindows Energy (which just worked ootb into Carla, and what a great tool it is), nor how to use a convolver; both have already been great improvements to my tone. Tramp (or anybody), would you have a suggestion of another impulse response ...

Guitar tone sounds harsh and boxy

Hello, would someone check this guitar excerpt and try to tell me what is wrong with my guitar sound? https://www.dropbox.com/s/5sbfkmoko0kimxx/random_fragment.ogg?dl=0 Lately it's been sounding harsh and grainy, and I just can't find the cause. I've A/B tested my whole sound chain to and fro, and r...

Re: *Music* anyone?

I expect to make the final video within a week or two and then it's on to the next one. This is my 4th song learned, I have about 50 others to learn and while I could and would love to spend a year learning each, I don't think I have that luxury :shock: :lol: BTW many thanks, goes without saying. Y...

Re: *Music* anyone?

With a couple of exceptions these chords (copied from a guitar tab sheet) seem to pretty well just follow the lead track. Yes, I agree. I guess that's the charm that makes guitar so popular, but it can also be a limitation; you read a simple "G" on a tab sheet, you set your left hand in p...

Re: *Music* anyone?

Congratulations for your musical zest, keep it up! I also like the "healthy anger" that your post title transpires, I hope I still keep that kind of fire when/if I reach your age (I'm in my 44th year right now): I too feel a bit alienated sometimes among so many "techheads"; mayb...

Re: Screaming amp simulation ideas?

Hey 42low, thank you for all the resources.... Btw. I can advice you a modeling amp. Those are not expencive at all if you buy a used one ($50 at most must be possible). Yes please, do recommend. Were the guitar snippets of your last clip recorded with a modeling amp? That sound would really work wi...

Re: Screaming amp simulation ideas?

Thank you for all the responses. Wow, I had a premonition of crickets when I wrote the post, because most of the stuff I see here is usually techno/acoustic, but hasn't been the case, so thank you... My equipment is very limited, so any real amp solution is not possible for me right now (that's what...

Screaming amp simulation ideas?

I'm making a song that requires a "screaming amp" entering at a certain point -that kind of effect where you kick the distortion pedal on and all hell breaks loose; one famous example would be Nirvana's "Sliver" (amp entering at 18"; I would like mine to be even more screami...

does anyone remember this or anyone ever used it? I tried a billion years ago to no luck.. I tried it a billion years ago too, but I did got lucky, got it working. In those dark times I didn't document how I did things, so I can't help you about how to configure it. It is the first guitar distortio...

Re: TIP: CHECK OUT 'RECORDING REVOLUTION'

The guy is like an institution in Internet and he for sure helps a lot of people. (His buddy Joe Gilder is also interesting and very entertaining). I have a lot to be thankful to them both; I've used a lot of the free stuff they produce; for example, I turned Graham's "10 minutes to a better mi...

Re: Studio 13.37 3.0 is out

Hi, I've just used the free versions that you generously posted at the Puppy forum in the night of times, so if it does not earn me the right to provide feedback just ignore me. I'm happy to see that the project is still alive. Point 1 -- Re: latency. I started using this distro when it was called P...

Re: Paul Davis at LAC 2017

I just got around to watching the video, and I wanted to leave my 2c here... Here's one thing that Mr. Davis' exposition leaves me wondering. He says: 1) Programming a DAW is an awfully hard job 2) Linux Audio is a niche within a niche Considering those two rough facts, I would have liked to have so...

Re: Soundcloud says to stay

Good to know, however, "not going away" is a negative statement. I'd prefer to read an affirmative statement, that says yes to something (like: from now on we're going to bet on growing this way, our vision for our service in a few years is...). Otherwise they are just in defence mode, put...

Re: What music did your parents play in the car at home etc?

That song is still gold for me when thinking about arrangement or composition. And also a great lesson on getting a bass sound that cuts through a busy mix on tiny speakers. Just listened to Wichita Lineman (in my laptop speakers, as close in harshness as I can get to a radio in the barn right now ...
