I want a feature where I can drag and drop these onto the FX Browser and have them import, like you can do with Themes.

Someone make that happen!

This isn't a finished version, it's more of a setup to start tweaking with. It immediately adds a bit of width to the track, but the variations possible are almost endless. Much easier to share a small project than trying to describe it.

An interesting approach that I would not have thought to try. (That's one reason why I love this forum.)

WowieZowie! Thanks guys for taking the time to send some EQ chains my way. I love it! I tried them out on some guitars in my current project.

*** CONTEXT ***

Because, like many of you keep saying, "it's all about context", I did a quick mix of the INTRO of the song I'm currently working so you can listen to the context. I know, it's pretty ridicule; trying to mixing six (6) guitars together!!! And I haven't even add the Bass and Drums yet. hehehe

So here is a sound clip:

Note: The first acoustic guitar in the very beginning it my soar spot (because it lives alone for a while...). I may need to track it again; there is a strange 'flanger-like' sound whirling by in the back that I can't seem to EQ out?! Could be the microphone was too close to the stings?

The guitar sounds and tones are not 'there there', but certainly 'getting there'. The bass should fill the bottom end, which will force me to re-EQ some bits.

Sounds pretty good to me, too. You have a great stereo image going there.

I do hear some pitched harmonics on the first guitar that are a bit harsh. They're on the F# and the A on your highest string. You could try deep, narrow EQ cuts at 3300 and 5100 (ish) kHz to take off some of the edge.

Some people will even go so far as to automate those notches so that they only come on when a certain note rings out.

Cheers.
