Tone hunting

You need the outstanding electric guitar tone you are hearing on your favorite album.
So you bought an awesome instrument and a fantastic amp. Maybe you have also bought some beautiful stomp boxes, expensive rack units, and phenomenal microphones. Or you rather use some amp simulation plugins. But what? Your dream-tone is not there when recorded and mixed with the rest of the band? You are endlessly tweaking and tweaking your sound, you tried everything. No success.

Why?

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 opposite side, 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

Mostly it’s not enough to run the electric guitars through a real tube amp or guitar amp simulation plugin to get the standards we are hearing on today’s records.

At the end of the day, we need a ton of plugins that eat a significant portion of CPU power. And maybe we are still not completely satisfied with our tone.

ToneSpot solution

There is a simpler solution. ToneSpot is just one processor doing that magic. One missing product you need for every tube amp or simulation. It is a key to success full of tricks, extensive know-how and still with a lot of freedom.

 

What matters? Music or sound?

Both.

Great musical ideas need great sound. The music industry changed over the years. The quality of sound and sound aesthetics often determine the success of the music. It’s not enough to write good music anymore. You need a breathtaking sound to get attention.

And...
If you have an inspiring sound, you write and play better music.
You have the ideas, we have the tool, so…
Let's get inspired by the sound!
