Greetings to dear readers!
Wanted to tell you a couple of tricks of DIs processing (for hi-gain guitar parts primarily, but not only) before reamping them, which I have to use in my practice time to time during the years. Some of us will find them well known, while another will learn something new. These techniques helps in solving several types of common problems:
- Make muddy and dark guitars brighter.
- Add some metal clang to the tone.
- Treat a weak uneven picking.
First of all, you’d better always record accurately and make quality (use good guitar with fresh strings, experienced musician with a good performance technique etc.), then fixing all the issues afterwards. But this is not always possible, so the following tricks may appear useful.
