So the guitar sounds great and all but HOW the actual hell do you make it sound good in a mix?
I think I’ve now spent over a year trying to EQ this guitar and it sounds awful, no matter how I EQ it. Without EQ I get a horrible muddy boom sound and a high end hiss, as well as a wailing sound like someone blowing into a bottle and a scraping/popping sound (which I presume is the plectrum hitting the strings). I cut out 4hz, to stop the hiss, I get a muddy sound that is so muddy that it hurts, like a low boom or someone blowing into a bottle or something, so in order to get rid of that I have to cut out entirely the low mids, using three EQs (each with low mids cut out), then the hiss returns.
I tried watching Youtube tutorials, where people show how to mix metal guitars, and I tried to copy, but it still sounds awful. Every time pretty much I just try to EQ, find out it sounds like absolute crap, delete the EQ and start again. So before I start RE-Equalising the track for a millionth time, I may swell ask here, how do you EQ it. So it sounds good???
It also sounds very bad playing power chords (or any chords for that matter).
I have attached a screenshot of my settings on the effects rack (no EQ because I started it anew again).
I will also try to attach an audio file of the horrid noise that is the intro of my song (it really becomes bad when the power chords kick in).
