Now it's time to add distortion to the guitar's low E, A and D strings. The result will create the illusion of a dirty amplified electric guitar in the left channel playing alongside a mellow strummed acoustic in the right hand side of the stereo image.
As previously discussed, we've used Mokafix's free NoAmp! VST plug-in - essentially an emulation of Tech 21's famous SansAmp analogue modelling pedal - as an FX insert on the three tracks that are mapped to the low E, A and D string inputs.
NoAmp! is great for adding a simple overdrive texture quickly and easily, but obviously the likes of Guitar Rig 4 and AmpliTube allow for much more sophisticated tweaking.
Use this trick with the Dusk Tiger in the studio to save time, or live to make your audience wonder where you are hiding the second guitarist!
