Hi guys, First off, I'm new to this forum, and I'm also new to recording in general. I'm a far better songwriter and guitar player than recording engineer. My setup is as follows: - Windows 2000 with Cool Edit Pro 2.0 - Tascam US-122 USB audio interface - Shure Beta58 and Sennheiser Evolution mics - AKG K-101 headphones I know it's cheap, but it's all I can afford. For the guitars, I'm using a mix of brtstack and hotrod on a digitech GNX-1. My problem is that instruments tend to get lost in the mix (unable to hear arpeggios and chords, very muddy, no highs etc). The guitars are very midrangey and a bit buzzy, and I think this might be where the problem is coming from. I was wondering if there's anything I can do with the EQ, compressors, or whatever to fix this. I don't know too much right now (boost mids to cut through, compress vocals, etc), but I can learn pretty fast. Any tips or tricks would be very much appreciated.
