There are millions of ways to record guitar, and in our July issue we're bringing you some of the newest and coolest. This issue is packed full of worthwhile tricks for getting great guitar sounds, and a huge variety of guitar gear reviews to feed your six-string urge.
Using guitar pedals in the studio can be risky business -- if you don't set them up properly, you can end up with a tone that's a poor imitation of that slamming sound you're used to on stage, or worse yet, with noise and gain issues that ruin your tracks. In this issue, the guitar-effects maestro known only has Har brings you page after page of useful advice for making your pedals sound their best. And what good is a feature on stomp boxes without a nice big pile of reviews to sharpen your appetite? We bring you an overstuffed Christmas-in-summer grab bag with over a dozen reviews of pedals by BOSS, Dwarfcraft, Eventide, George Dennis, Hardwire, TC Electronic, Tech21, Totally Wycked Audio, WMD, and more!
And that's not all. Ace guitar recording engineer Brian Tarquin covers the best methods for adding downtuned guitars into your mixes without turning them muddy, and Paul Vnuk Jr. reviews a portable, powerful, sweet-sounding acoustic-guitar recording preamp from Rupert Neve Designs. We cover cool new guitar software from IK Multimedia, hardware and software tools for guitar recording on the iPad, and lots more... all aimed at getting you the very hottest sounds for the hottest days of summer.
If great guitars are your goal, you can't afford to miss the July issue of RECORDING!
