Just wondering, i've been messing with the Catharsis (beautiful!!) impulse files for a few days now, attempting to replicate some of the killer tones you guys posted around this site, and my rigs sound SHITE in comparison. I've noticed a couple of guys have posted details on using more than one impulse for a track, but when i do this, either as an insert on a track (for instance, loading a second example of s-preshigh through Boogex), i just get a "re-cabbed" tone (hard to explain, but basically no tonality at all). By no means am i an engineer, but i'm really interested in this and wish to start work on some songs to upload to my site...
Is it really that big a deal sending a signal to 2 impulse files?? Will that help with me getting a nice, definitive metal tone?? If so - how are you loading these impulses to a track?? i have tried using ONLY TSS+SoloC as insert effects, then seding the track to ONE group track that has ONE impulse, then likewise with a second impulse file - the below song are from my best efforts!
I'm using Cubase SX3 with SD2, Trillian as a bass sim....
My latest song, "Hell is Other People" is available at http://www.reverbnation.com/tortoisecult
- but you will see what i mean about the tone....it sounds like plastic (despite my best recording/mixing efforts)
My mixes are coming out terrible! Anything i lay on my mixed SD2 rig (metal foundry now that i have it!!!) sounds like shit, no definition, no depth, no warmth.
I wanna sound like you guys - fucking pro!!!
i know i will get a cool response cos this site KICKS ARSE!!
Peace and brutal technical death metal
