Stinger wrote:... In terms of Tonemeisters suggestion that you should never need to cut more that 3 db ..... sorry, in this application I disagree 100%. In terms of broadband cuts/boost and general tone shaping I would agree with the 3db suggestion. However, the combination of an SM57 and a G12T75 creates an absolute blizzard of nails that absolutely begs to be slammed in the fizz range (imo). You gotta get agressive with that shit if you expect a tone that can compete with a pro studio (buy the way, I run my own studio as well). When you say above that you need to remove WAAAY more than 5 db for the fizz to start to disappear there's a reason for that...
no, no, no... I am going to dis agree with YOU, lol. Just kidding.
All I was really getting at is that not too long ago pinpoint-surgery like that was not a realistic option but recordings turned out great still. If it takes what I consider major surgery to "fix" a tone than that simply means that the original, recorded tone was not good enough. Remember, back in the day people would spend days (some recordings, weeks) on mic placement and the recording setup. The fizz does not have to disappear but just needs to be brought into proportion and there are many ways to accomplish that without EQ... mic choice, placement, angle, volume,... little tricks like taping a pencil across the front of the mic to disperse high frequencies... and most importantly, be willing to change your amp/guitar setup not according to what sounds best in the room and then try and capture that with the mic but instead maximize your tone to what works best for the recording.
Stinger wrote:... Absolutely brutal cuts in the fizz are pretty typical moves by a lot of engineers (not always though, it depends)...
that's true... if you're talking about recordings done nowadays. When people did that in the "good old days" it used to be more of a special effect rather than doing boosts and cuts of narrow bands on every single track.
Stinger wrote:... Go with your instinct and your ears...
That I will agree with... in the end that's all that matters. Personally, I am a huge recording enthusiast and enjoy the art of recording as much as the art of music itself. Whatever, method you find that works for you to get the tone you desire is the one you should go with. For me personally, I would go the set up and placement, mic choice... route until I capture the tone I want that needs minimal adjustments (a little compression, minimal EQ, maybe a little reverb/delay...). But Stinger is right, many people will spend the amount of time needed shape their tone during mixdown. I think neither way is really quicker... either you spend a lot of time during the set up of the recording process but have an easy mix or you get the recording done fairly quickly and spend extra time shaping tones...

sounding great... can you upload a section with the whole band and your tone (drums, bass, and guitars... vocals not needed)... that would really be what matters rather than accomplishing a killer guitar tone on its own.

Hi Waldie,

The new clip is definitely a step in the right direction ..... BUT ...... the original clip is waaaaaay louder. You can't compare them objectively unless they are very close to the same volume.

That aside, I just want to say I absolutely do not dismiss Tonemeister's comments above. There is definitely different approaches that are equally valid. You have to experiment and find what works best for you. Even his suggestion about taping a pencil across the front of the mic can yield some really cool tones. I guess overall that is my philosophy ..... don't subscribe to rules religiously. Try all the rules and then combine them, dismiss them, bust them in half, make your own ..... it all comes down to experimentation and experience.

I understand...I play poker for a living and people constantly say "What should I do here??" And I always say "it depends". Usually on about 20 factors.

I just have zero experience with getting good tone onto a track so I need help with the basic stuff. I will experiment with Master's degree stuff when i get there. I am in 2nd grade right now.

What did you think about the changes? The mix?

thanks

Well that definitely to my ears sound much more like the original you were shooting for. However, now that I go back and listen I actually think the "fizz cut" maybe higher than 6 khz. It sounds like maybe the cut is up around 10 khz? Don't know for sure but give it a try. Definitely though the changes you made got you closer to the tone of the original track.

From original to "EQ adjusted" went something like this....

So, take the "EQ adjusted" track and play with it up around 10k?

Heres a SPAN of "EQ adjusted" by itself.

Heres a SPAN of Gates same note if you are curious.

Hey Waldie,

Looking at your Voxengo Span screenshots reminded me that I have a program called Voxengo CurveEQ which allows you to plot the EQ difference between two wave files. So I did just that. I used Voxengo CurveEQ to analyse your guitar vs. the one you are trying to match. The attached file shows what eq changes you would need to make to match the guitar tone you were shooting for.

If you check it out you will see that starting at the low end, from 20 hz on up to about 500 hz you would need to boost right around 150 hz (which I think you said you have done now). Then next there is a bit of a notch at around 500 hz but not worth worrying about.

Then as we suspected, most of the mid range from 600 hz on up to about 3 khz would need to be boosted in varying amounts.

Next we get to the fizz range. You can see there is a narrow but fairly deep cut (7 db or so) right at about 5 khz. There is another cut around 7 khz, but actually a boost around 6 khz.

Finally, you can see you would need to make a MASSIVE cut at about 10 khz on up to around 15 khz.

Very interesting. You were already pretty close, but try these eq suggestions and see what your results are.

I tried to do the eq cuts and boosts, but i dont know how to massively cut 10-15k but not affect 8-9k and 15k+ without using like 10 super narrow cuts and it gets very complex very fast. SO then i used CurveEQ to try to match it....shrug

i waste more timne on this than anything its unreal and frustrating...i really appreciate your help

this is mix after using CurveEQ to "match" it (i cant tell if it sounds reaaaally good or reaaaally bad haha)

thanks cheers
after listening to the various mixes on soundcloud i will say this, the one with the CurveEQ matching sounds pretty sweet compared to the others. (to my ears) I like where this has taken my tone. Def for the better. Hopefully i saved it properly so i can just apply it to future tracks lol

thanks again, lmk what ya think

also, I really dont think i can replicate it without the curveEQ. Is there any way i can without dropping 100$ on something i may not need? thanks
