I made this to simply try out my new 7-string guitar. It's nothing complicated and it's not on the same track as what I normally write, but it's something different!


Fuckin love 7 strings. Drums sound tip top. Nice work on the stereo effects with the drums, this song is great. 5/5

Thanks man, i really appreciate it :)

like the clarity

as a fellow seven-string user, i really enjoy it when people try to extend their range, it shows off a great understanding of the guitar. i was wondering what you use to record, because i use my DigiTech RP500 which hooks directly, via usb, to my laptop, but if i use any heavy distortion it just doesnt sound as good as it does when i record clean, i want to try to record heavier music.

For this recording i used, believe it or not, audacity.
I used The Metal Foundry expansion for Superior Drummer 2.1 for the drums,
all synth came courtesy of a few plugins in FM8. I used Fruity Loops 8.5 to string all the midi devices together, i exported each individual drum and synth track to a .wav file, plugged them all into audacity, then from there i fiddled with volume levels and then EQ'ed each individual track for the most optimal sound.

The guitar tracks were recorded straight into audacity using my extremely old "Realistic Stereo Mixing Console," which is basically a little 3 track recorder, and the mic i put up to my guitar amp was a 1978 Unidyme III Dynamic Model PE54D. I was honestly just as surprised as you were that it sounded this good.

Equipment used as far as the guitar goes:
Ibanez RG 7321 with the new Wizard 3 neck and improved bridge system
My cabinet is an old late 80's model Dean Markley 4x12.
I used a Peavey 100 watt Valve King head with stock 6L6's in it, i plan on replacing them soon with Slovakian Groove Tube 6L6's with a rating of 5.
I also used a noise suppressor, and an ORIGINAL Ts-10 tube screamer, which are relatively hard to come by these days.

Any other questions feel free to send me a PM =)
