Anyone had any luck doing this?  Any tips?

Hellowhellow.

Yes,I've done this.  There are a few "but's" though.

First off all, yes it works...and in the way the curveEQ has its function.

So,here some of my experiences to help you on the way.

Say you want that smashing guitarsound of favorite band.

1)First thing you need,is a peace of music of that band whitch contains ONLY a guitar peace..so no cymbals fading out, no peace of bassguitar playing in the background...just guitar sound.

2)Record the exact same guitar riff yourself.  Why the exact (so,that's in the same key you should play, guitar tuned the same as treirs)??

I've tried, and it seems to work best this way.

3) Use the SpectrumMatch-thing on the file off the band.

4) Now apply that to the file you've recorded en see what happens.

5)See what happens???

Yeah,it will be close now...BUT,most of the time you need to do some adjustments here and there yourself.

Look at the curve the file of the band has with a spectrum-analyser en then try to adjust your own file to that...as good as it gets :p

6) Done al that?

Now save those settings in the preset area.

And so you're done.

If you record your own music now and use the preset you've made, you will have that kind of guitar sound you wanted.  Some times some minor adjustments can be needed,but ok...that's it.

An importend thing to remember.  You will NEVER sound like your favorits untill you actually get the same stuf they use and have the same settings!!

But with CurveEQ....you can get veeeeeeeeeeery close!

I hope I've been of any help??

Good luck.

Hey Barre,

Thats good info.  I've been doing it like that too and I'm glad to see other people are using the same approach.

However, I was wondering, instead of hoping to find a moment on an album when the guitar part just happens to be playing on it's own, is there such a thing as a band, (or their respective label), putting out raw tracks of their instruments for the benefit of those who want to analyze such things?  I would pay through the nose for a CD full of Adam Jone's chugging rhythm guitars so I could grab a nice freq spectrum.

cheers,

sb.


I suggest you to ask this question on some public forums like KVRaudio.com

Hi Aleksey,

Thanks, I'll post over there... just thought this might be a good place to ask seeing as it's a major function of CurveEQ, (which is awsome btw... just got it yesterday!).
