Intro to Clean and Lead Tones
Hello, welcome to day eight of the Metal Recording Bootcamp. This is John Browne of Monuments if you didn't know that already. If you were just tuning in now and missed all the awesome stuff we've already done. We're gonna be doing cleans and leads today. I already took the time to set up some record groups. We're gonna be recording all the guitar DI's through that API up there. Basically John is plugged into the little labs, DI. It is going out to an API. And then the front is going into his pod XT, which is going into Virgil's digitally right here as you can see, and that's it. We're just gonna do it to it. So you tell me. (guitar music)
Sounds nice, doesn't it?
Yes. It's not bad. Sounds great.
So what are you looking for on this part? What are we doing first?
I honestly can't remember.
Oh, okay. (laughing)
We're gonna need to, quick listen to clean part, I think it's over the chorus.
The first chorus
Which is this thing right here. (rock music) Okay...
It sounds kind of like probably that clean tone I used.
Could be. (laughing)
