anyone notice the amount of metal guitarist nowadays with tons of mids and less scooped tone?
Good. They need to keep their tone away from frequencies 200 Hz and under .
Anyone notice that this thread is in the wrong section?
*cough* misc *cough*
Dang, now it means we have to thing of more inventive ways than to jsut turn up our mids to cut through...
Yeah, I'm digging it. It's the tone I go for when I play guitar. It's a tad more... "old school"
Mids are very important for a good live sound. Scooped guitar tone sounds very bad live. Ever notice how at some metal shows the guitars are very loud yet you cannot actually hear anything?
yeah...it's about time that guitarists realize they play a Midrange instrument...stay outta my end of the spectrum
Nobody tell Fieldy.
He won't want to turn up his mids to cut through. Maybe thats why you couldn't hear him as well on the untitled album.
Not really. Most of the metal bands I have seen lately and metal guitarists are still scooping with the "California Smile" on their EQ. Drop tuning with inadequate strings and scooping the mids is part of why I left metal.
yeah i have also noticed gui****s using more of mids but not like cranking it all up but more like flattening their california smile on the eq
mids are great =]
i really dig my tone and i have boosted mids, 12 o clock bass and a little cut highend
slayer has been boosting mids since....ever
Any reason to cut mids in guitar, especially in metal?
It's got that death metal type of tone. It works for what they do, but I don't dig how it sounds. As stated, live, it just turns to mud.
Meh. Never cared too much about the eq setting of teh guitar players in my band, probably now I will.
the reasoning is the opposit
2 guitars with boosted mids creates noise in the mix.
IMO the best 2 guitar setup for metal is a smile and a frown. generally with the lead guitarist boosting the mids.
it creates about the fullest sound possible.
also Kirk Hammet's tone in metallica is hardly muddy. he has a very very radical scoop.
most guitar pickups are also voiced with the mids cut back.
