Alien XXX,thanks for the suggestion.I will try it right now.Also,do you know any GOOD guitar plug-in that allows palm muting and real guitar stuff?
I tend to use Tension, string physical modelling instrument built-in in Ableton Live. Or use a sample player in Reason.
However, my "guitar playing" requirements are very simple. I guess you need something a lot more sophisticated where you can simulate techniques you use on an actual guitar.
Suggest you try asking around on this forum. These guys are quite helpfull. They may also be able to point you in the right direction in terms of recording your guitar. Maybe a cheap DI box?
If you want to look for guitar VST plugins, there is no better place than the KVR plugin database
I guess you are looking for a free plugin , so check what is there and try them out.
Here is another database to try
They have a section dedicated to guitar and bass VST instruments and they are all free, so try them out and see if any meet your requirements.
Good luck !
Thanks a lot man!!!
Not to believe,but yet another question.Which effect (in FL is good for the vocals to give it that industrial (radio kind of) sound to it?To give it a bit of noise?Thanks to you all in advance.
Appologies for the late reply. I have only now realised that your last question was left unanswered.
There are some VST plugins specifically made to create the "telephone effect" on a vocal.
However, this can be easily created with any EQ:
Boost around 500Hz (Experiment with Q or bandwidth and intensity until you get the desired effect
For better emulation of an old telephone sound, use a low shelf to cut below 80Hz and a High Shelf to cut above 2kHz.
As you are looking for a noisy sound, you may decided not to cut above 2kHz at all, as that might help make it sound hissy and crackly (especially if there is any noise in the recording to begin with, which I suspect there will be sind you say you have a low quality suond card and mic).
If it does not sound noisy enough, there are a few things you can do:
1) Get a white noise or radio noise sample (there should be plenty at freesound) and loop it. Then play it at a fairly low volume and mix it with the vocal before it is fed into the EQ (for "telephone effect".
2) Again there are a few plugins that have specifically been created to add noise or lo-fi effect to sound. Sometimes these are called "Lo-fi" or "vinyl" effects (some try to simulate the hiss and crackle from vinyl records).
You can try these two, although I have not tried them myself:
Maybe there are some effects of this type already built into FL?
3) You can also experiment with "bit reducers", "bit crusher" VST effects. Plenty of these around and probably some already in FL.
But these introduce digital sounding grit (as from old low quality samplers) and may not be what you are looking for.
Here is another lo-fi VST plugin you may want to try
Wow, thanks all you good people for the replies. Good luck in future projects. My sound card is still that integrated on main board, but i made some things, and if anyone want's to hear it's on: www.myspace.com/presuriser. Also, if someone want's to collaborate, please say so.
