    Transcript:

    My name is Ian Vargo with theproaudiofiles.com. I'm going to show you how to mix acoustic instruments with a focus on mixing acoustic guitar. The basis of this song is a finger picked acoustic guitar and lead vocal melody.

    [acoustic guitar + vocals]

    I wanted a bright, clean, finger picking tone for the guitar. I started focusing on the sound of the lead vocal and acoustic guitar which went throughout the song and built everything else around it. I started with acoustic guitar and this is the EQ I used for acoustic guitars, the API 560 equalizer.

    [acoustic guitar with and without Waves API 560 EQ]

    Low shelf with this equalizer here, getting rid of a lot of low frequencies: 31, 63, 125. I'm cutting a little at 500. Some at 1k which really opened up the sound for other instruments to fit in. And I boosted at 16k and 8k to add airy brightness. This EQ does that well.

    Then this API 2500. There is not a lot of compression going on. I used this as sort of a tone. Warms it up subtly. Once I had a sound for the lead vocal and guitar, I built around everything. This guitar goes throughout the song, then in the second verse we have this Taylor guitar which comes in. And I EQ'd pretty aggressively. Ok, so I did a hi-pass filter up to 270. Cut at 100. Cut drastically at 470. Again at 5.6 and boosted at 15. I did this because there were so many other instruments. I only wanted this guitar to be a presence you heard but not really felt in terms of low frequency warmth.

    [acoustic guitar + vocals]

    I wanted to hear finger picking but not as much as the harmonic content. Also later in the song we have a beautiful mandolin part. Without this EQ, which cut out the low frequencies of that guitar, the guitar ended up fighting with the beautiful mandolin part.

    [mandolin]

    Drastic reverb and delay on the guitar. After I had a sound for this additional Taylor, starting in the sorta break part right here, we have a couple more additional guitars which were processed pretty simply with some hi-pass filtering. Sort of a western sounding guitar.

    [acoustic guitar + EQ]

    Each of these guitars were being sent through bus 17 and 18, arriving at this aux track on which I applied this CLA-76 as sort of a warmth generator.

    [acoustic + compression]

    Brought down the volume a little bit too. And some more hi-pass filtering.

    I'm pretty liberal with hi-pass filtering. I find it's hard to get, especially with popular music, the amount of volume that you want out of your overall mix if you don't get rid of these sort of low frequencies that sort of build up.

    Next we've got this beautiful yet dull sounding Gibson guitar.

    [Gibson acoustic guitar]

    We've got 4 layers which are going through bus 25 and 26, to this aux track with some hi-pass filtering, some cuts at 500, some V-EQ — then that track is being sent to another track where we have a spring reverb. Let's mute this and I'll show you what all these sound like. It's a very beautiful dull sounding guitar. And I wanted to push it back in space a little bit because I already had very close upfront guitars. So I wanted to push it back. Sounds pretty drastic on it's own but in the mix it works.

    Normally I do more volume automation then you see here but there were a couple parts that just came across as a little bit harsh in terms of the performance on this Taylor right here. I think we had some fret noise.

    [acoustic guitar volume automation]

    Don't be afraid to get really crazy with volume automation when mixing. Especially acoustic instruments. Lots of fader riding on the mandolins.

    Originally the producer had sort of a MIDI recorded string part.

    [MIDI strings]

    It's not played perfectly and to have listened to this in the context of the song it came across as very MIDI. We have a beautiful arrangement, a lot of acoustic instruments, and then all of a sudden just this sort of MIDI string part. And then what we did was actually we were fortunate enough to find a violin player — sort of duplicate the part right here.

    [violin]

    Generous amount of echo. I's not played perfectly, but when combined with this string part we found a balance. Sort of a technique a lot of producers use, where they combine MIDI strings along with actual strings to get the desired organic effect.

    This has been Ian Vargo with The Pro Audio Files.

    How to approach doubling and panning guitars to add more texture to the production and mix.



    Transcript:

    Hey, what's up guys. David Glenn of davidglennrecording.com and theproaudiofiles.com. I'm gonna switch it up a little bit in this video and talk to you about producing guitars.

    As a mix engineer, I get tracks sent to me all the time where the guitar player has doubled, tripled, quadrupled the exact same guitar part.

    Instead of layering the same exact part over and over or twice, I want to show you variations that you can add by switching that up. So, if you're not a guitar player, still pay attention because this could work for you when you're recording or producing guitars. Give them this example, say hey, instead of doubling that, do it further up the neck or with a different tone, a different pickup, and different guitar, a different amp, a different mic. Change it up. Something. Something should be changed when you double it to give it a different character.

    I'm gonna double a guitar part. Just threw on a loop here I'm using Superior Drummer, got a Fender Strat, Got a UAD Apollo, and I'm going into an 11 rack SPDIF into the Apollo. If you're curious, let's see... we've got a guitar, very simple box tone, and I'm running it through the UAD 610B. And let me play it, this is worth showing you. And if I bypass it.

    [playing electric guitar with and without UAD 610 B plugin]

    And with it. So you can see those settings. Check that out. Love that tone, love what UAD is doing with their gear. So, back to the task at hand. We're gonna track a couple guitars, I'm gonna play a part, gonna make something up, then double it the best I can to show what that does. Then we're gonna get rid of the doubled guitar and I'm gonna play a different part to help bring some life to this song.

    So we've got some chords. We'll go with the neck, let's clean it up a little bit.

    [electric guitar]

    Let's turn Low Latency Monitoring on. Excuse me, we've got a click track. Ok here we go. Let's give it a shot and see what happens.

    [recording electric guitar + drum loop in Pro Tools]

    We've gonna move the next track to the right and we're gonna do the best we can to double it and play the exact same thing.

    [recording doubled electric guitar + drum loop in Pro Tools]

    Now let's get low latency monitoring off. And hear that in the track. Turn the click off and this is a doubled guitar.

    [doubled electric guitar + drum loop in Pro Tools]

    Got like the spacial thing, a bit of a chorusing effect. Makes it feel like the guitars are wide, but I've got a better idea. I'm gonna try to differentiate that doubled part. I'm gonna switch pickups. Nothing crazy, I'm not changing my amp, not changing the gain, just gonna switch my pickup to the neck position and I'm gonna play.

    So let's start from the top, get a little click. I turned the click off. Let's unmute the click and rock out, actually I wanted the drums to come up quite a bit.

    [recording doubled electric guitar]

    So right now we're gonna listen back to what we just did. Gonna mute the click. And let's hear what we got.

    [guitar double]

    Cool. Let's listen. A/B it. This is the first thing we did.

    [doubled guitar]

    And then back to the second. So this just a concept that I want you guys to take, whether you're tracking guitars or producing. I'm gonna — maybe we'll make a series out of this and we'll add a couple other elements to it for tracking some guitars, but, that's it for this video. Give you another way to look at it and we'll catch you on the next one. So don't forget: david[at]davidglennrecording.com. I've got a great series coming your way soon on my mix template. And I'm gonna walk you through A to Z how I'm doing my mixing whenever I import sessions tracks in, clean them up, split stereo files to mono, the bussing, the routing, the sidechain compression, the mix buss compression. Everything you could possibly imagine I'm gonna walk you though A to Z and it's gonna be great. So stay tuned for that and emails to david[at]davidglenn.com and check out theproaudiofiles.com.

    FAQ Friday is our weekly roundup of YOUR questions! If you have any questions you’d like to ask, simply leave them in the comments below (or on YouTube), and I’ll do my best to answer them!

    Here’s a big question!
    What influences the final sound? Playing skills vs. Instrument Quality vs. Mic position vs. Mic?

    First of all, it’s performance.

    For me the number one most important thing with a guitar is the performer, especially an acoustic guitar.

    Good performance, good left hand technique, good right hand technique, pick or fingers, whatever it might be, on a great instrument is going to be a huge deal. The most important thing is definitely the player then the instrument - in that order.

    A good instrument is good, but only in the hands of a good player!

    ➡️During this episode of FAQ Friday I answer the following questions:
    • What influences the final sound? Playing skills vs. Instrument Quality vs. Mic position vs. Mic?0:44

    • I’d like to know your thoughts on playing without picks. I prefer the sound of an acoustic using my fingers. Do you always play with a pick or do you use a combination? 7:06

    • At home I always seem to lose track of my picks. I’ll buy like 20 at a time and eventually they all get lost to, what seems, another dimension. Do you have a similar experience in the studio?? 9:22

    • You got some new small monitors. What are they? 10:26

    • When do you sleep? 13:40

    • Would use the same technique for micing an acoustic when the player is playing using his fingers in a song like Dust In The Wind, Fleetwood Mac's Landslide or Beatles Blackbird? 16:26

  • Tonewoods explained - Acoustic Guitar Tone Woods Comparison - Solid vs Laminate...Does It Matter?

    18:16

    In this beginner's guide, Sam explains the differences between solid and laminate construction acoustic guitars. Sam also shows us sound examples of how different types of woods will affect the tone of a guitar.

    Check out our full range of acoustic guitars at:

    If you're new to the world of acoustic guitars, the terms solid and laminated may be a little confusing, as, unlike electric guitars which are literally solid, an acoustic is obviously hollow. In this video, we look at how an acoustic guitar body is made, and the difference between solid and laminate woods (sometimes referred to as layered, engineered or plywood).

    We'll be looking at the advantages and disadvantages of both, for example, solid wood usually offers a richer tone with more resonance, whilst laminated woods are usually tougher and more resistant to humidity and temperature changes, and we'll also be taking a listen to guitars made from the most common tonewoods, to hear how they affect the sound. Want to hear the difference between Sitka spruce and cedar? Ever wonder why some guitars have mahogany back and sides, whilst others have rosewood?

    Plugins featured in this StudioRack chain: F6 Dynamic EQ, DeEsser, CLA-76, Greg Wells VoiceCentric, Renaissance Reverb

    Waves StudioRack is a plugin chainer that includes presets for entire plugin chains, and also allows
    you to create your own custom chains. As shown in this video, you can assign different parameters from your chain to macros—enabling you to create your own ‘custom plugins.’

    In this in-depth tutorial we show you how to assign and manipulate several plugin controls in one
    twist of a single macro. Some of these StudioRack techniques recreate how pro engineers
    manipulate physical controls on real analog outboard gear with two hands.

    We demonstrate these techniques by creating a custom acoustic guitar mixing preset using Waves
    plugins within StudioRack designed to:

    • Remove muddy frequencies using dynamic EQ while boosting subtle levels of top-
    end air
    • Remove harshness using a DeEsser
    • Apply level-compensated compression using both Waves CLA-76 input and output
    controls at the same time on one macro
    • Create tasteful stereo width from mono acoustic guitar recordings
    • Add two layers of smart parallel reverb

    Taylor Guitars is one of the leading manufacturers of acoustic guitars in the world. Bob Taylor and Kurt Listug started Taylor Guitars in 1974 as two broke twenty year olds with a dream. Now the company builds some of the highest quality acoustic guitars utilizing cutting edge technology alongside new and unique designs. Taylor has never been afraid to experiment and try new things, pushing the design of the guitar further into the 21st century. With Andy Powers joining the company and pushing the design envelope even further it is safe to say that Taylor Guitars will continue to refine the acoustic guitar as it strives to make high quality, compelling instruments. As one of the Taylor Guitars dealers, Alamo Music has witnessed many of the changes that Taylor has implemented. Partnering with Taylor, Alamo Music has also been able to appreciate some of the many unique aspects of the company and what they bring to the acoustic guitar market. So if you are interested in purchasing a Taylor Guitar, here are three things you should know before you do.

  • GUITORCHESTRATION! - How to layer guitars into an orchestra - Guitar Discoveries #59

    10:30

    #guitarrecording #homerecording #guitardiscoveries
    Want your home recordings to sound like a full band? Robert Cassard demonstrates how to orchestrate your guitar recordings by layering a variety of guitars with different tones and frequency ranges.

    Robert's band Cosmic Spin is a duo. But their Gilding Lilies EP has been hailed for its full, organic, live band sound. How is that possible when Robert plays all the guitar and bass parts?

    The key to a full band sound is in the arrangements and layers of guitar (and other instruments) that add texture and drama to the song — and keep the listener surprised and engaged until each song ends.

    In this video, Robert dives deep on Cosmic Spin's version of The Golden Age, a cover of Beck's classic song from Sea Change (1992). He layers 5 different guitars on 7 tracks to create a gorgeous soundscape that lifts and supports the song's featured vocals.

  • layering acoustic guitar parts and how your position to the mic affects the sound

    2:24

    please note! i'm still learning all this video editing stuff, so i haven't taken out the boring pauses. apologies!

    overview:
    this is another demonstration in the layering of guitar parts. it also shows how changing your position to the mic with an acoustic can have a pretty noticeable effect on the recorded sound.

    1 - left channel
    2 - right channel
    3 - middle channel

    note you can actually hear the difference as #1 is recorded as i shift position in my seat. not recommended for proper studio takes! :-)

    4 - left channel again
    5 - left and right, sounds pretty full
    6 - all three, sounds very full

    hopefully this is of use to some of you guys out there. i had the mic set up against a mover's blanket and between two homemade broadband absorption panels. see the recording acoustic guitar using home made panels video for more on the setup used here.

    full signal path:
    johnson jg-624-n acoustic
    behringer b1 condender mic
    behringer mic200 pre (set on neutral)
    behringer multicom pro (set to limit and VERY slight compression for peaks)

  • Taylor 214CE Electro-Acoustic - Review & Demo

    4:41

    In this video, Sam takes a quick look at the latest version of the popular Taylor 214CE, now with layered Hawaiian Koa back and sides, check one out here:

    Part of their mid-range 200 series, the Taylor 214CE is a Grand Auditorium electro-acoustic guitar with a Venetian cutaway. Due to recent changes in regulations and restrictions on the use of Rosewood (that was found on previous models), this latest incarnation features layered Koa back and sides, a wood that is much more sustainable. Due to the laminate/layered construction (a veneer of Koa sandwiching a core of Poplar), this change has minimal effect on the guitars tone, it still sounds fantastic, rich and resonant, and the beautiful Koa grain and colouring makes the appearance of the guitar even more striking.

    Along with the Koa body is a solid Sitka Spruce top, with newly redesigned and upgraded internal bracing to allow it to sing more freely, increasing the guitar's dynamic range. This top is finished with a high gloss lacquer, whilst the back and sides have a satin finish.

    Other specs include a satin Sapele neck with 20 fret ebony fingerboard, an ebony bridge with Micarta saddle, a Tusq nut and high quality chrome tuners. Lively, organic sounding electro tones come courtesy of Taylor's widely acclaimed Expression 2 behind-the-saddle sensor and pre-amp system, and to offer some protection, the 214CE is supplied with a high quality hard foam gig bag.
