  1. Wow! This was so well done and so musical. I'm seeing comments about adding click to the kick. I'm listening with Sony headphones MDR 7506, which are flat. I like the soulful sound of the kick around the tree minute mark. Maybe during the more rock sounding part with the "guitar" solo, you could tweak the kick by adding click and making it louder in the mix to give it a more rock sound. I really enjoyed your composition and listened to several times. That part with the spaceman running has a very Pink Floyd-Dark Side of the Moon vibe. Outstanding!
  2. Wake up! It sounds like your drummer is quitting the band. Get rid of the problem member, everyone will be happier. I've quit 3 bands because of alcohol and drug abuse. I know five musicians who have died from substance abuse, three of those I played in bands with.
  3. Nice song, yes very Floyd, but so what! It's good music. Vocals are in tune,Thank You! I would like to hear some echo trails on the vocals to compliment the guitar and help create a more dreamy & complex atmosphere. Thanks for sharing. Andy
  4. This put me in a great mood! What do wives know anyway?
  5. Toddskins, I quad tracked the guitars, I recorded four separate channels for one part. I panned one hard right, one hard left, one 80% right and one 80% left. I used a '78 Les Paul Custom with a DiMarzio Super Distortion (1970's) Humbucker in the bridge pickup and a stock Gibson Humbucker in the neck position. Pickup selector in the middle. The guitar is direct into a Behringer Xenyx Q802 mixer with on-board compression applied. The output is via USB to a Creative Labs SoundBlaster Audigy sound card. So to begin the process I set up my first track with THC loaded into the FX area on the track, and chose an amp and cabinet combination that I liked. I recorded the first track with the metronome on. Then muted that track and proceeded to record three more tracks the same way, muting the previous track each time. Since THC is only being applied as an effect, the actual audio from the guitar is a raw, clean guitar track direct from the input source.
  6. Playlist below. These are raw tones, no processing, compression or EQ. This is to show new users how these amps can be used to produce some very nice tones for free! 11 amps in total are demonstrated, each through 10 different cabinets. Look in link description area for each amp, click "Show More" to view linked timeline stamps to each cabinet. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLaXOVgCVK3CCNq5LM_7FDPAUVgAHlV2ss
  7. Too fatten up a guitar track you'll want to multi-track. It's common to dual track or quad track guitars to achieve this. For dual tracking try recording the same guitar part in two different takes. Then experiment by panning one track hard right and one hard left, or maybe 80% or 60% on the panning. Discover what you like. In the example I quad tracked, I recorded the same part four times. I routed the four Guitar Channels (takes) to a dedicated Guitar Bus, routed the Guitar Bus to the Main Bus. Adjust the Guitar Channels so they don't clip, Then look at the Guitar Bus, make sure it's not clipping. If so, adjust the Guitar Channels accordingly. At this point we have the 4 Guitar Channels feeding the Guitar Bus. The Guitar Bus now acts as the main volume for all the guitars. I set the Guitar Channel panning as follows: one track hard right, one hard left, one 78% right, one 78% left. There was no processing on these tracks or buses. For a final guitar sound I would apply any EQ, compression, noise gate, etc. to the Guitar Bus. It's a waste of time to do each track separately and you'll get better results applying the processing to the Guitar Bus. Remember that the Guitar Bus feeds to the Main Bus.
  8. James, if you watch the first post I explained the setup. I'll post here for you to watch. Feel to ask any questions: TH3 Cakewalk Version-Amps Comparison
  9. I don't own a Fender amp and have limited experience playing through one. As for these sounding like the real amps, my intention here was to show what could be done and not necessarily to say that this one sounds like a Marshall JCM 900, Dual Rectifier, etc. I simply want to show that a very good guitar sound can be produced. I loaded the Tweed Deluxe with matching cab, a Shure SM57 over the cap and the TH3 Tube Nine (Tube Screamer) in front of the amp. Here's an example of something I liked and would record with:
  10. TH3 produces some great guitar sounds. I'd like to share some tones generated using TH3 Cakewalk Version & NadIR loaded with an IR created by Ola Englund. The point here is that all the software is free! I featured the 11 amps included running through the IR. These are raw guitar tones, no EQ or compression. I may do a series featuring each amp paired with the various cabs, but for this comparison I picked the cab and then compared the 11 different amps through that cab. TH3 Cakewalk Version-Amps Comparison Links are included in the description below the video.
  11. I can relate, playing in a German polka band for 10 years. Our most requested song . . . Roll Out the Barrel. Requests for Blue Suede Shoes, Hound Dog or Moon River. Seriously? Wouldn't you like to hear something German? Do you realize its Oktoberfest, not a wedding?
  12. Mark, I had been using version 4 and upgraded to version 5 after trying the free version. It's only $149! You get 135 kits and the ability to mix any of those to create your own kits. I'm using a Roland TD 25KV with great results. One of my adult sons played on it and liked the Slate drums so much that he also bought it.
