I am working on electric gtr samples right now and man, its soo much work...and expensive
...we have booked a rec studio for the next 4 weeks and are using great equipment. Mic chain is : Avalon2022Micpre-->AvalonAD2044 Compressor-->Avalon ST Eq 2055 to Studer 2inch (Dolby SR Noisered.)-->Apogee PSX-100-->Ptools. (mics: 57\'s, 421\'s, Brauner, 251, U47)
Some samples are going directly to Ptools but most of the heavy (linkin park type stuff) gets a little tapecompressed. All of the powerchords are doubled (L,R with the option of mono).
Right now we are at the point of too late to turn around...but its soooo much work (to do it right). I started this project to have samples for my own work since I am not happy with what\'s out there..but in constant demand for gtr stuff and always last minute so mostly no time to hire the real deal. Well, as I am working on it I am realizing how much room there is for stuff like it . Its impossible to cover everything all at once...and my gtr player is about to go numb ..hehe
Keep you guys posted !
