  • If it sounds good it IS good
This is the intro to my latest track. Its enttitled Universal Truth (Lies Here).

Cleans:

Cold Sweat Split left
Irish tour neck and middle wired in series right

Harmonics: Monster Miracle Man (Very much out of character application for quite possibly/probably the most powerfull BK out there! - you'll see)

Distorted: C-Pig 4-tracked.

All of its though a Vox tonelab LE.

(Excuses: I know some parts are shoddy, like the harmonics, but its just a rough draft: most of it isnt even written yet (just ideas)

Enjoy!

Newer version. More ideas. Somewhat skeletal, IMO (though, my vocalist loves it as is *shrug*)

Oh, all distored rhythm guitars are still C-Pig. Harmonies are Monster-MM

:lol:

Thanks mate!!  8)

Oh, I should add: the drums are just sketch drums. Hence the extreme sparsity of cymbals. DFH Sup. The cold sweat is a neck, in case its not obvious.

Good tone and I liked the riffage :) Only thing with the tone is it sounds a bit dull/compressed for my taste - with a bit less gain/more treble or mid I think itd sound awesome. Got me gassing for a tonelab again :x

Sounds great too me! I don't really like single coil clean alltogether so obviously I'm biased on that, but I'm sure it sounded very good. Reminds me of "Repentence" off DT's latest album.

The cleans sound divine.  However, i have to strongly agree with Tom on this one and say that the distortion is way too sterile and compressed.  If you are still using the Powerball, i should think you could get more three-dimensionality out of the tone.  For me, the harmonics sounded kind of weird.  At first they were kind of interesting, but as the song came along they seemed to get weirder and weirder, out of place really.  They tone on them sounded good, but their placement didn't seem to suit the rest of the music.  I think if you pushed that distorted tone into the 3-D area this would be a lot stronger.  Good work!  It is inspiring, i have been feeling a little down about my playing recently, but this is a good inspiration for me.  :)

Cheers guys. Thank you especially for the comments on the tune!

The sound is a little too dark, but its supposed to be, and its supposed to be compressed. Its meant to be taught and tense - dark tone with compression (which is a property only of the amount of gain used, which was actually very, very modest)

However, I referenced it round my other gear a bit, and it is a little darker than I might like too. Not much (matter of taste, obviously), but it is. so I made a slightly brighter version. I cant upload it at the moment though - I'm at work.

Opp-9, I'm not using my powerball, in my flat, to rough tracks out! Maniac. When its done, I'll record it with that (when the guy below me goes on holiday or something! - he doesnt mind 20 or 30 minutes here and there, but all day might be pushing it a bit  :lol: )

The riff sounds great and was expecting a massive crushing tone when it kicked in. It sounds like the amp is behind a wall or something then miked up.
Cool playing though.

That was really good. Monstrous riffs and great build-upping.

It kind of reminds me of Down for some reason.  It sounds good, I really want to hear it after it's more developed and with a proper drum track, good job!
