Archives For Electric Guitar Recording

We’ve had a ton of great articles here at RecordingReview involving electric guitar recording from mic placement and selection to mic preamps to the best amps for high gain metal tones or cleaner blues tones to ribbon vs dynamic vs condenser mics. I thought it would be cool if I highlighted some of those articles and standout threads.

Make sure to check out http://www.recordingreview.com/killerhomerecording/ Killer Home Recording: Electric Guitars as I stuffed everything I knew about recording electric guitar into it. Of course, don’t take my word on it, check out what others who’ve purchased Killer Home Recording have to say.

One of the tip top reason to check out Killer Home Recording: Electric Guitar is the included Interrogator Sessions: Electric Guitar. I filled my studio with $100k worth of gear with mics ranging from a $2,700 Neumann to a $28 M-Audio Nova. We had preamps like a stock Presonus Firestudio interface all the way up to a Great River MEQ-1NV, Manley TNT, and Martech MSS-10. All of this was done to find out the exact role high end gear had on recording electric guitars. I’m absolutely positive that hearing these clips will have you cash many, many, many times greater than the cost of the Killer Home Recording series.

Also, take a look at what the site has to offer. Discussions like:

Line 6 has claimed to have produced something that can create a staggering amount of tones and tunings that previously would have required an arsenal of electric, acoustic, and resophonic instruments. In other words, a game changer. So have they created something truly revolutionary, or is it another digital toy to be laughed at by vintage tone snobs?
