Any tips for "nailing"/ recording this guitar tone...

YouTube - Physical - Nine Inch Nails

The low thick palm muted powerchords that come in at about 23 seconds.

I have always liked that sound, yet re-creating leads to a thing sound. Advice for a beginner hobbyist?

Have......

Amps:
Mesa Dual Rectifier
Marshall JMP-1

Pre:
Great River 2nv Pre

Ad/DA:
Rosetta 800

Plugins:
NI Guitar Rig
SSL 4000 Waves
Logic
Vintage Warmer

Mics:
SM57
SM7B

I LOVE ribbons for this situation! The recording sounds like it could be a 57 though, so just make sure you get your mic positioning right. One thing i'de suggest is to isolate your cab from the floor. Also, don't forget that the bass is reinforcing those palm mutes, so make sure your arrangement is right.

That could be it. I have young ears, could not quite separate if a bass was re-enforcing it.

Could you explain isolating your cab from the floor a little. Thanks in advance.

Record a DI and reamp it through a bunch of different tones... phase align together and mix to taste.

Part of the secret is layering NOT more gain... more gain/distortion generally especially with solid state amps = more odd-order harmonics = thinner/harsh

According to some interviews, the broken EP was all DI.
Mainly a JMP1 thru a zoom 9030.

It takes sense if you listen to it, it has that zoom "sound" going on, and it's quite raspy on its own.
