OK, im using the boss me-50 to apply distortion to my guitar sound since i cant afford some of the better plugins for cubase and all the ones it comes with sound crap to me.... but that could be because im not skilled in using them.
using the cubase EQ plugin and also the multiband compressor, i can get an acceptible sound from the line out thanks to the COSM thing, but it does seem slightly flat. Im looking for a sound similar to that of Tool. That is, a thick, distorted, smooth sound but one that is still well defined. a bit like guiness
I can get it quite thick, sometimes too distorted (and thus fuzzy where the mids become too harsh) but am having trouble trying to make it sound simply massive.
can you guys offer any advice on anything i can do without a) spending anything or b) spending too much ;/
