If you want great guitar tone on a recording you start with a great player, add a great guitar, a great amplifier, a microphone suited to the purpose and a quality preamp. That pretty much sums it up.
BUT…there are times we get to a mix, have added some overdubbed instruments and maybe the guitar tone used in tracking isn’t working out as well as we thought it would.
I hate it when that happens.
But not to worry, we have a variety of fixes here at Nashville Trax but this Waves Guitar Tool Kit is software based amplifier modeling technology and the designer/overseer/grandpoobah, Paul Reed Smith, a famous guitar maker dude, pretty much got it right. It sounds better for most applications, than the stand alone unit J-Station, or Line 6 modeling, both of which we also have here.
You can use it on already recorded guitar or play a new guitar track straight into it.
These are best-we-could-do screenshots done in our studio, apologies, maybe that’s why we’re musicians, no photographers, lol.
I love the stompbox window! You simply click to add a wide variety of pedals to any of the 6 smaller windows:
In this window you can choose the simulated amp you wish to hear, say a Fender Twin or whatever, then tweak it to your song’s content:
Or you can move to the presets window to choose a stompbox chain and amp already set to sound like the guitar tone popularized by various bands and hit songs:
Cool or what? b.e.
