Here is a stereo recording test I made today. Trying to get this thing tweaked in.

I recorded the following file today and looking for opinions as to how it (the recording) sounds. Thanks ;)

It sounds lovely - I would have brought the lead forward a bit bit it purely preference. The playing is great though :thumb:

As in "forward", do you mean gain?

Thanks for the compliment on the playing ;). I have always loved that "satch" score and decided to take some time to learn it over the course of the past week and a half. The rythym near the end of this recording sounds simple enough but it is kind of tricky to grasp since there is a lot of string skipping going on. The arrangement is very logical but unusual, but then again it is Satriani we're talking about... hehe.

Listening on my system at least the lead sounds like its off to the right just a little, and I wouldn't necessarily bring up the gain on it, just ease up on the wetness of the verb. Overall, sounds great though.:bannana_g

Ok, I know what you mean. I kinda did the recording and pasted it in and maybe I just didn't get it on que... oops.

However, in the original recording Joe uses a slight chorus effect and a delay set about 440ms which causes a slap back effect. I am still working on the tone today to get a little closer to what Joe uses in the original and I think I have it pretty close now. I am also going to use Hard Limiting to bring out some of the low end and mid tones a bit which are getting somewhat lost. I think I'll need to eq the treble a bit higher in the final track as well. Try to bring it all out a little cleaner.

Sounds nice, I concur with some of the other comments. For the lead guitar, a little less 'wet', maybe just a touch louder (.5 db maybe). I usually try to match the verb on my guitar with the backing track (listen to the snare), as much as possible, unless I'm going for a spacey effect. It's tough though to find that sweet spot somtimes. Nice playing too!

i think you did a great job too except like the others i had to listen too hard for the lead. bring it up a little. your playing was good too. the only thing i would change is to add more vibrato in your playing. if you listen closely to satch, evh etc they never let a note ring on without a vibrato. a great vibrato is one of the most important tools you need to become a great professional sounding guitarist. other than the vibrato you nailed the solo. great job!

Thanks guys (on my playing).

I think I have the tone worked out on my Digitech RP200, but I need some kind of real time EQ that is better than just basic crap on my Multi-FX processor (it is simply Bass, Mid and Treb...ughhh)

Anyone know of a good real time EQ for use on an XP PC?

I notice that if I EQ in post (digitally), some tones get lost ...not to mention it gives more punch to the delay than I prefer... by doing the EQ in real time, I would get more of the tone I'm looking for before post editing.

After much searching on the net, I think I found a realtime EQ. I haven't tested it yet, but for anyone else whom might be looking for one, here is the link...

Oh and BTW, it's free. :bannana_g
