Title: Guitar Production/Engineering
Post by: vjmanzo on October 28, 2018, 10:30:33 AM
Hi everyone,

I’m doing some preliminary research exploring the ways that producers/engineers work with a guitar sound on recordings (in home studios or pro/semi-pro studios). Specifically, the scope of this relates to multi-mic layering, multiple instances of VSTs/Fractal/Kemper (and so on), re-amping to one or more amps, etc., to produce and engineer a guitar sound on recordings.

Personally, I think Parker-guitar owners have a unique perspective in this area since our guitars are so versatile in terms of the available pickup combinations and even frequency content, so, at this stage of my inquiry, I’m just trying to get in the ballpark: what types of things do you do in the studio to represent or “sculpt” your desired guitar sound?

Lengthy or brief responses welcome; thanks in advance!
