Definitely would like to see this. Can never get enough advice on mixes IMO.
I think Cooper Carter would be a good choice also. He plays many different guitars and many different styles---from Clean to Gain.
Nothing against Mark, I have learned a great deal from Mark and he is a great player. Maybe they can do it together-like a web collaboration
I think it's more about getting the right tones going in and understanding what your tracks should sound like BEFORE you start the rest of the tracks... meaning if you listen in solo, you should be able to tell, for the most part, that it will work with little tweaking. Bass, drums, etc... that is where I find most of the refinement happens. Getting the bass right is HUGELY important to the guitars.
That, Sir, is exactly how it's done. You get all your instrument tones as perfect as possible before you print anything.
I'm actually sitting here thinking of doing the video you guys are asking about. Lol! I just wish I had the time. Ya never know!
That said, there are many ways to record of course, but each person will have their own way of doing things.
My methods use a little outboard gear and a few other things. So if I did something, you'd get an idea as to what may go on in a real studio. Then again, my sounds, methods and playing probably wouldn't be something you guys would be into.
At any rate, I'd like to see someone do the video you guys mentioned. Hopefully someone is up for the challenge.
^^ This one thousand times. It puzzles me what people expect to see in a video specific to Axe FX.
Watching someone record through a real amp all mic'd up isn't helping anyone in this thread if the amp being mic'd isn't an axfx, know what I mean?
No, actually I don't. The whole part about mics and preamps and room treatment may be irrelevant to Axe FX, and the recording process with Axe FX is easy. So I don't think anyone is asking about recording per se. Once the sound is already recorded - what can be so specific about Axe FX that it requires special post processing techniques? I don't get it at all. I mean, is it so bad in replicating the sound of a mic'ed cabinet that you need to process it differently? And, like I said earlier, how can post processing, even with Axe, be in any way the same when recording jazz or some grindcore or what not? I get why there might be a "tips for processing jazz guitar" or "tips for processing stoner guitar", but I honestly don't get what "tips for processing Axe FX recordings might be".
Now, don't get me wrong, it's not that I oppose the idea, I'm just puzzled and curious what everybody here expects to learn from it.
I don't know vangrieg, I thought it was a pretty good thing to ask for. See, the problem with YouTube and searching for things can be misleading especially if you are new to this.

I see the whole thing in this thread to mean "hey, if anyone can make a video, how are you recording your axfx?" I do videos on recording and techniques as a part of my living.....so stuff like this is very common in my realm. It's even cooler when I find the time to just do one for fun.
I'm still hoping I can get a few minutes to throw a video together one of these days. I really do enjoy stuff like this even if I'm the only one who likes what I do. Lol!
He's probably saying 3 out of 10 videos you see from him, he's taking some time to EQ and level balance the guitar just a bit after all the other tracks are in. You can't possibly know exactly how to EQ your guitar unless maybe you add it absolutely last to the recording, which usually isn't the case.Hmmm...30% is still a lot according to my view
Always great to learn something new that changes perspective on things one considers obvious! Well, not always. But at my age, it still is. So please do it!
