As mentioned in the title, I humbly seek ye veteran â€œPod headsâ€ for advice on dialing in a tone specifically for double tracking. Looking for something like Tesseractâ€™s rhythm tone. I think they are using 6505s. I would be helpful if someone can suggest the best amp/cab/mic combo for this, and the settings on them. Iâ€™ve been messing with the 5150 (PV Panama) with a Screamer and hard gate before the amp, and mid-focus EQ after the amp. Sounds pretty good when playing alone, but double-tracked in a mix (plus drums and bass), itâ€™s maybe 70% of a solid rhythm tone; sounds good, but maybe lacking a bit of punch, or a little something that I can't put my finger on. From what I gathered, for double-tracked guitar parts, I should lower the gain a little to increase clarity. My Mid on the amp is currently quite high at around 80%. Exactly how different are double-tracking tones compared to single ones, and how differently should I approach this? Is there a recommended process for dialing in tones specifically for this? Right now the only reliable way I can hear the end result is to record the sound double-tracked and listen to the playback. Quite a long, incremental process. I donâ€™t really play metal, but need this for my latest project. And it feels like a great opportunity to learn something different. So, any help will be greatly appreciated.
