guitar tone for rock band recording
recording some guitar at the moment for heavy rock band and we can't get a big enough tone with bass and full smoothness (see Killswitch Engage for example).
We have the following mics and pre amps to use:
Studio Projects C1
couple of Beta 57's
AKG SE 300 B with CK 91 cap
couple of C 3000's
Penta and MOTU 828 Mk II
we have a JCM 900 2x10 combo and a JMP- 1 valve midi pre amp. At the moment we're blending the two tones from both amps.
Which mics should we be pointing at the combo and in what positions?
We've tried loads of combinations but it's all too 'tinny'. Anyone got suggestions other than spending more money?
Carillon P4-2.6, 1gb ram, MOTU 828mkII, Win XP, Logic 5.3 Platinum.
