80s Hard'n'Heavy Rock preset (with audio demo)

Postby SpotlightKid » Sun Jul 02, 2017 2:03 pm

I made a preset for playing 80s hard'n'heavy rock:

80s Hard'n'Heavy.gx
(32.49 KiB) Downloaded 10 times


The signal chain is a DS1 overdrive through a head with 12ax7 preamp / 6V6 master tubes, M-Lead Style tonestack and Marshall Style cabinet. Effects are light compression and a bit of chorus and some reverb.

Here's an audio demo: Queen In Love Riff (Ogg Vorbis)

This was recorded with my Line6 Variax Standard into a M-Audio Fast Track Pro through guitarix and into Tracktion Waveform. I triple-tracked the guitar with different settings of the "Spank" (Stratocaster) model of the guitar. In the DAW I just added some reverb to the guitar tracks sum and a master limiter. The backing track for the intro is from a bonedo.de workshop.

Share & Enjoy!

Chris

I noticed that with guitars with humbuckers you have to raise the treble in the tonestack/cabinet section and the presence in the head section quite a bit, otherwise it sounds too mushy.
