Thick metal tone?

Postby Evilriffz » Sun Apr 28, 2013 10:50 am

So I have noticed a few things about the settings that are on here, most of them are really similar which is fine, however I am still not finding the tone that I am looking for. I'd like to get a tone that's thick but not honky, cutting but not piercing and mid driven but not nasally. I don't have any mods and I have an ISP decimator and mxr 10 band in the gate
Here's what I'm setting at now using od orange on both channels.

I have them setup where the sound is noticeably different but I'm still not where I want to be. Maybe a nice system of a down tone like on the album toxicity. Thanks ahead of time! [smilie=gt-happyup.gif]

Try using OD1 Red, Gain under 3, Bass over 1 o'clock, mids high (3 o'clock), treble around noon-ish. Resonance/Presence to taste.

Hey, that EQ curve looks kinda familiar [smilie=icon_biggrin.gif]

It's quite possible the metal gods had a lot to do with that...or too much creeping on your forums [smilie=icon_lol.gif]
