How Do I get A Boxy Sound?

I was Wondering How Can I get a Boxy Sound Cause I want to hear how it sounds and so I'll know when I hear it in a recording not mines but someone else's. Thanks a lot.

I'm sorry, but what are you asking? Your run-on sentences are confusing me.

Put a microphone in a large cardboard box or a small empty cupboard and record you speaking, some acoustic guitar or whatever...

Yes, really.

Dismantle your drum kit, and track using the hard-shells instead. Its worked many a time for me when I've wanted that 'awesome boxy sound' in the past!


Seriously though, what do you mean?

Three peaks in the EQ. Three parametric EQ's in parallel.

Take a kick drum, and boost 250 as much as you can. Same with guitar.
