i say man..try them all! with the plugs...i'm sure you can just do a google search...the black album was what i was thinking as the 'metallica' sound....but i also really dig master of puppets and even justice for all...
but the black album...exp sad but true...killer guitar tones...
the guitars are also i believe tuned down a half a step...and maybe a whole step on sad but true...
poke around in here http://www.waves.com/content.asp?id=1687
i'm looking at the metal pedal right now...and i'm GUESSING...
crank the dist all the way, get the level so its nice and hot.. boost your lows, take the freq knob and scoop out around 500-600 and take your highs and add some brightness to the sound...it mights suck...it might not..but that should give you some crunch if the plugins are worth anything...maybe add a little compression..well a lot 4:1 and have a medium attack so you still get the pick action, and a medium release so its not compression hell...adjust your thresh-accordingly..
you could even fine tune with that equalizer pedal...stay away from the q's in nuendo..they will kill your sound even more than those waves plugs..
thats what i'd start with just by looking at the picture..
idk man i'm still a big fan to the mic and cab..
try that...remember not only are the guitars nicely sounding...Jason is really thumping on that ****ing bass..and that adds alot of the overall sound to metallicas guitars...listening to sad but true right now...and i think scooping those mids outta that maybe even around 450...
boost your low end to give you that god like dum dum dum...haha
post up your sounds! that would be rad!
what kind of guitar are you playing? your never gonna get that sound outta a strat or a cheap humbucker...you def need a decent ibanez or dean..gibson..remember these guys have the BEST stuff laying around when they record..
post up your sounds if you try that...i'm eager to hear it
