I got a noob question regarding to Metal guitar recording

Recommended Posts

 

I really love those metal tones in above clip. But I tried to follow him, and not close to that sound at all.

My question is "Do I need to record this rhythm guitar twice per 1 track to get sound like that?

Or I just record one item as mono track, and split it into 2 tracks for L & R panning.

I do a lot of heavy/metal guitar recording with 6 and 7 string guitars.  In JS’s video, the guitar that comes in around 1:00 is double tracked and panned R and L.  So yes, you need to record the same part twice and pan it R and L.  JS is a precise player and great at recording so his work is tight.  You can’t record a track once and copy that and pan R and L.  Well, to be more accurate, you can but it won’t give you the sound you hope for.  That would be too easy!  Doug.

Oh I see!! I will try double track again.

 

Thank you for your advise.
