My equipment and software:
- Toneport UX1
- Gearbox 3.72.0
- Ableton Live Lite 8 Line 6 Edition
I have not been too successful with finding a metal tone that is not "buzzy". Allow me to elaborate on the tone that I'm looking for...
- Organic - not a thrash metal tone that rips your head off. AKA nothing buzzy, hissy, trebly. Rather, someting like this: Evergreen - Dark New Day
- Woofy and/or chunky. I'm referring to Skeksis by Strapping Young Lad
- Question - how do these guys remove the treble from their sound and still retain all the character? Anytime I crank the volume up on my own guitar and practically gives me a sinus headache.
- So, a tone between the guitar tones in these two songs. Chunky and organic.
I have attached a really lousy tone for yins to fiddle around with. If it isn't possible to do this with Line 6 equipment (rather Gearbox), please let me know. I'll update my software, but please still post screenshots of your settings if you have any.
EDIT: I think that the Treadplate simulator model would be the best choice because it emulates the Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifiers.
