I've been recording a lot of stuff lately just to get the hang of it. I'm basically building my songs, orchestrating them if you like. I'm gonna re-record everything once everything is finished, good guitar sound is not something I'm after right now. Besides there's lots of advice on the forums just for that. Now I have this little question for you guys. Let's say I have 3 guitars playing simultaneously on a part of a song. Guitar 1 panned left, Guitar 2 panned right and Guitar 3 is in the center. Guitar 1 and 2 play rhythm, each one of them playing basically the same thing apart from some 7th notes being played on Guitar 2. Guitar 3 plays a melody. Let's call this Part A of the song. On the next part (Part B) There's only one guitar playing just rhythm. The level difference between Part A and Part B is quite noticeable. Part A is louder than Part B. How do you get both of the parts sound the same levelwise? My recording technique consists of recording a guitar part twice and then panning each take left and right. I did a little bit of research and a few people recommend quadrupling the guitars. Wouldn't that sound very muddy?
