As you may or may not know i run a Mixing and Mastering Studio.
1. You send me files that you recorded. Or you recorded with a producer.
2. I mix and master them. You give me money.
3. We make multiple high fives after the record is done and we’re both happy AS FUCK.
What i keep see happening is the poor quality of guitar and bass tracks that i get.
The majority lack just one MAJOR thing. Which is:
This is a BASIC. Tune your guitar. Very often. Before every time you hit record (Unless you have an EVERTUNE System . Change strings very often when you record an album. Like every 1h30min. I’m NOT FUCKING KIDDING!
The Guitar itself is a piece of shit that needs to be redesigned. I don’t have the funds or the resources to do it. But someone needs to do it. Until then. Just use an evertune or a tuner. Often.
The sound starts in your hands. And the guitar can only translate it really good if its tuned fine. A great tuned guitar with a good playing technique through a shit amp sounds 100x better than a bad technique with a shit tuned guitar through a 5k+€ Rig.
Remember. Get the basics right.
