    I just laid down a guitar jam track and I am not terribly happy with it. It's not horrible, but it's not perfect either. I find the lows to be a bit muddy, but not overpresent. What do you suggest my next step should be?

    Nice, you post something and get a spam response (though the mods might delete it before you see it, good job mods!) So why do you think you have mud? Is it a bass response problem with the room? I had to move my amps around my room a lot before I found the sweet spot in my recording space which isn't all that sweet just better. Or is this just a one time issue? Are you rolling off below 90 htz? If it is the rooms bass response I was not successful in EQing that to sound great only slightly better.

    That is exactly what I was thinking. It is a possibility of two things. I usually move my cab to the room's sweet spot for tracking, this time I did not. I usually use the higher speakers on the cab, now I used a lower speaker. But I think most of the problem is the amp itself, I am a fairly good rhythm player and the clip makes my right hand picking sound loose and dull and the chords run together. I think that was what offended me the most lol. I HI Passed the track at 80Hz and LO Passed it at 10 kHz, no other EQing was done. You know I think the other poster was just trying to be helpful... Cialis and sports would solve most of my recording problems... LOL

    Different speakers do sound different, even in the same cab.

    Also, don't be afraid to roll-off the low end even more. You can find mud anywhere below 400Hz, IMO.
    I know this recording is only of a guitar, but if you start adding in bass and drums, you'll find you need less of that low-end...
    especially if the drums and/or bass share a similar rhythmic pattern w/ the guitar.
    I wouldn't recommend a HPF all the way up at 400, especially in your case, but play around anyways.

    A great trick is to use a parametric EQ, and take a narrow-Q, high gain "spike" and roll it around.
    Try it w/ a dip too, to help find what you *can't* take away.
    You'll be surprised at what you find...
