As producers and mixing engineers we face daily challenges to make things sound more energetic, more full of life. For every artist, this could mean completely the opposite. Our role is to grasp an artist's vision and make it real through all kinds of sound-shaping methods. We are the Tone Hunters!
Electric guitars can take a lot of processing. It’s because guitars can get a lot of attention to the music and for some genres are really crucial. So it´s very important to get the guitar sound just right. Guitars can fight with several layers of instruments clashing into each other. Or the recordings are sounding too sterile, thin or harsh. On the other hand, recorded guitars can sound too dark and muddy. So you need the tone that can cut through. The guitar tone has to be punchy and fat sounding, but it also needs to have a lot of clarity and tightness at the same time.
But it’s not all!
Even if the guitars are heavily processed, sometimes they still also have to be very natural sounding at some point.
And that's why you need ToneSpot.
LET'S TALK ENGINEERING FOR A WHILE, SHALL WE?
When a professional audio engineer is building that awesome tone in the studio, he is often running it through some heavy lifting. Blending several re-amping chains with massive filtering, compression, equalization, saturation or even some multiband processing and maybe some other crazy stuff. And it is no secret that the top engineers often run the signal through their chains twice or three times in series until both the engineer and the artist are 100% satisfied with the result. So there is a lot of stuff to do when building a perfect electric guitar tone.
There are very few products tailored for electric guitar instruments post-processing, but most of today’s engineers use a very similar workflow.
STANDARD ELECTRIC GUITAR RIGS
Guitar chains can get complicated pretty quickly. Especially in today’s musical environment when everything is supposed to sound big, full and present.
There is a more effective solution. With the ToneSpot technology, you can minimize the number of plug-ins you use, while maintaining the highest sound quality possible.
MEET THE TONESPOT ELECTRIC PRO
ToneSpot Electric Pro consists of eight powerful modules plus the input and output sections. They represent the electric guitar mix workflow and the signal is fed through them in series from left to right. Each module can be turned ON and OFF separately.
Voicing - Sets the input EQ and gain structure of the guitar to the appropriate stylistic ballpark right from the start.
Character - Determines the basic flavor of the sound.
Saturation - An advanced model of a real valve saturation circuit that has a nice higher harmonics punch.
Shaping - Shape your tone with the 8-band musically labeled EQ.
Smash - A peak-eating leveling compressor with faster attack time and a gentle compression ratio.
Surgery - An extreme surgical peak EQ with 2 identical filters and up to -50 db attenuation.
Effects - Tremolo, Modulation section including Chorus, Flanger and Phaser, and various types of Delay and Reverb.
Finalizer - This is the mastering section of your chain. Sometimes the guitar needs a final touch, some tightness or fatness.
AGC - An automatic gain control included in both input and output sections. It sets the signal level to the plug-in’s 0 dBVU.
