    Not sure what you want, could you please clarify?

    Recordings are very sensitive to your performance. If you play poorly, it will sound bad. If you play good, it will sound good. Performance is more important than gear or recording technique. So my advice is... practice?
    Also, let the recording engineers handle the mixing process, they usually know what is best for each recorded song. Don't try to make your performance, or the song, sound like something it is not.
