Quantizing guitars

Recommended Posts

It was recommended to me to quantize the recorded guitar on an old track of mine and I am wondering if the features in Cakewalk are the best way to do that, or is there an even better way that I should explore?   I couldn't find much info and much of it was confusing but I used AUDIOSNAP and set the duration to 1/8 notes and the STRENGTH to 95% (under the theory that I didn't want it to sound too perfect).  I did this on BOTH double tracked guitars at the same time.   Was there anything else I should have explored in the settings?  I saw a video that suggested "split beats into clips" but when I selected that there was a click sound on the beats.  

I THINK the new version sounds much better (I also did some EQ tricks on the guitar) but I would love others thoughts on it. 

Here is the original version

You might find this article helpful. It's important to adjust the transient markers to fall at just the right place.  Chapter 8 in "The Huge Book of Cakewalk by BandLab Tips" (link in sig) covers AudioSnap, along with some specific information about quantizing guitar parts.
