This track, is following a very simple pattern yet sounds powerful and not overwhelming (well, considering that this is an aggressive track and guitar is used in half of it).
I've been trying to replicate the guitar sound for a while(as part of learning more about guitars) but all my attempts are not anywhere close. My assumption is that this is a set of slightly muted power chords played with very short attack/heavy impact and processed through screamer/compressor (please excuse my rudimentary knowledge) with some heavy EQing to make the sound more "round"(high end is suppressed a bit?).
Unfortunately trying both real guitar and VST(Schreddage2) processed through Guitar Rig(using both presets and trying to build everything from scratch) I am not able to get anywhere close.
So my ideas so far are:
This is a reasonably simple sound to achieve but my lack of knowledge stops me from hearing the guitar separately from the final mix.
Some of my assumptions about the way this is played/processed are wrong.
Considering that this is probably both, can someone please give me a pointer on what makes the guitar in this track sound the way it is?
