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.
