A new special edition of Computer Music magazine will help you nail how to record professional-sounding guitar at home.
Guitar Power! is completely dedicated to helping you nail your sound with your PC or Mac.
Inside you’ll find easy to follow step-by-step tutorials showing you how to fix mistakes on lead and rhythm parts, get blistering tones in software, shape your sound, enhance your tracks and record and mix like a pro. There's an entire tutorial on recreating the sound of DragonForce, and you can check out all the results on the ‘before’ and ‘after’ tracks on the included DVD, which also comes with an arsenal of guitar production software tools.
If you’re looking to improve your setup, check out the Gear section, with recommendations on the best guitar recording kit and software out there. And be sure to take the CM Listening Challenge, where they pit £7k of real amps and hardware outboard against two sub-£300 digitally-modelled solutions to see if you can hear the difference.
