Nuendo Guitar Distortion

Posted on

Member Since: Sep 15, 2004

Hello -

I'm still fairly new to the recording game. I've been using an Edirol UA-1000 and Nuendo 2.0 on my PC. I've been recording my guitar direct, hoping to get a good distortion out of Nuendo (I'm a bass player and dont own any nice guitar equip.) All the plugins I try sound so weak and "tinny". Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

ouch....yeha you're gonna have troubble here.....what i would do is record a few passes, and apply different eq and distortion settings then mix them together.

I would suggest two possible options that are within the $100 ballpatrk price:

Line 6 Guitar Port or the GreenMachine II. Both are software based amp/mic modelers for guitar, both of which are decent. I prefer the GuitarPort due to the hardware component of it and some additional features, but for strictly modeling, they both do a great job for a good price. I have reviewed both.

GreenMachine II www.homerecordingconnecti...tory&id=488

without any additions to your arsenal like these, you will have a very hard time getting a decent sound...which is unfortunate, but true.

Awesome, thank you for the ideas. Now is that guitar port device any different from say a Zoom Guitar Processor. I think I have an old crappy Zoom layin around here somewhere that I could use. I guess I'm mostly confused between an "amp modeler" and an effects processor. Sorry! I'm new!
