Acoustic Guitar through WT-400
« on: April 21, 2005, 01:00:21 AM »
I know I need to record a quick "straight into the laptop" clip so you can fully appreciate this, but I recorded a clip of my bargain basement Yamaha acoustic/electric guitar through my WT-400 and I am amazed by the way it fattened up the sound.  To you this clip may not have a great sound, but compared to what it usually sounds like, it's outstanding.  ;)

It's the only clip in the folder for the moment.  If I happen to have added something by the time you check out the link, the clip I'm talking about is clearly marked as acoustic guitar.  ;)

I plan on experimenting with my WT-400 as a studio mic pre-amp as well.  If I do, I'll post clips.

Sounds very full, Jake. And seemed to diminish the string noise...what little of it was there, anyway...

Whenever I have done studio stuff we have always used my bass rig for the acoustic guitar, It usually sounds the best.

Hey guys, thanks for the replies.

Vinny: I didn't think by any means that I was the first one to think of this, I just never thought of it before and had never heard it mentioned on here, so I thought I'd mention it.  :)

What you should try next is a nice chorus with a slow rate setting on it. It will add a nice fullness to your sound. In the studios I have worked in when I have done this we usually mic the 410 cab and DI the bass rig with the acoustic. You get great results with a bass rig on acoustic guitar I think because the settings on a bass amp are generally more easier to set for a clean sound than a guitar amp is. Most EDEN rigs set flat work perfect for this. It is also nicer when it is your home studio and you can take the time getting the sound you are looking for or when someone else is footing the bill for the recording[:D]

Your track sounded great just how it was, But there is always more stuff that can be played with (and should)in a studio.
Break out some effects next!!!

Have fun,
  Vinny
