    AB Test Tones...A or B for guitar tones.

    I am just curious as to what everyone thinks sounds better. I know that everything can change in the mix, but just the guitar sounds in general solo'd...which sounds better to your ears. A or B on the high gain, or A or B on the clean tone???? Thanks

    I think if you used a high pass filter on "A" to eliminate the tubby bottom and ditched the reverb on "B" that both could be useable tones.

    Yeah, if you could find a way to get both to play nicely together, you'll probably get a better overall tone.

    That being said, I like distorted B better. It's clearer and less muddy.

    I think either clean tone could work depending entirely on what's going on with the rest of the music.

    Thanks for the listen guys. I liked the warmth of A on both, but B would probably be a better sit in the mix. I guess A was a little muddy as well. Thanks again.

    Wow cross posting at RP - that's the way to use some bandwidth.

    Personally I like the B side as it stands as a solo part.

    Like you said, in the mix it all changes.
