Tips for Automating Width on Mono Electric Guitar

Hey, what’s up guys?

David Glenn of theproaudiofiles.com and davidglennrecording.com,
home of the free VIP mix training bundle.

If you haven’t done so yet, go sign up, join
the mailing list.

You’re going to gain access to two sets of
multi-tracks that you can mix and use for

your resume, practice mixing…

You’re going to get a whole slew of impulse
responses, a couple of free video courses,

instant downloads, and a ton more, free just
for joining the mailing list.

In this video, we’re going to take a look
at kind of an advanced mixing trick, I called

it.

I’ve got a guitar, and the pattern of the
guitar lends itself to some automation to

throw out wide, and create a cool effect.

I’ve used the Waves ADT.

This is a great plug-in.

I’m really stoked about picking this up.

If you don’t have this, there’s a couple of
ways you can also conceptually do something

similar.

It’s not going to be the exact same effect
as the ADT, but this one kind of stands on

its own.

But anyways, conceptually, you can still pick
up from this tutorial.

I’m going to hit play and show you what I’ve
done to this guitar.

The first one up here is the actual guitar
that you’ll hear mainly in the mix, and then

the one below it, I’ve – it was a stereo
guitar that was in mono, so instead of just

ditching the second guitar, I threw a spring
reverb at 100% wet to create kind of a parallel

of the spring reverb sound, but then I put
a little bit of treble to boost that up and

do some stuff.

So anyways, these two guitars make up the
sound, and automation is on the first track.

So let’s take a look at what it sounds like,
and then if you like it, stick with me, and

I’ll show you how I did it.

[guitar plays]

Alright, cool.

So very clearly, you can see that I’ve got
the bypass being automated for those couple

of guitar licks – the little slap-age going
on.

I’ve got selected sixteenth notes.

So, the guitar is right up the middle, and
what I wanted to do is in the mix – I’ll

just play this snippet here before this effect
comes in – is I wanted to just kind of shoot

it out wide, as if two guitars had come in
and accented that part.

So, let’s take a listen in the mix.

[mix plays]

Okay.

So, the ADT does an incredible job of that.

It’s also got the pitch shift movement going
on, but if you don’t have the real ADT, then

by all means, check out what you can do with
just your stock delay.

I’ve got a delay setup here.

This comes stock with – free with Pro Tools.

35 on the left, 35 on the right.

Thing I picked up from Kenny Gioia back in
the DUC – the Avid Forum – years and years

ago, but zero percent wet on the left side
of your delay, 100% wet on the right, you

can play with those numbers and get it to
taste.

Pretty much, it’s going to create the impression
of the left is going to be dry, the right

is going to be slightly affected, so it’s
going to give the impression of two guitars.

It sounds like this.

[mix plays]

Still pretty cool, right?

So, that sounds great.

You could always send that and automate to
a pitch shifter, or a doubler.

The difference with the ADT is it’s like a
randomized movement.

I don’t even know what they’ve got going on
behind the scenes.

The whole Abbey Road deal there.

So, this one was short and sweet, but I hope
you dig that.

Getting creative with the guitars and tons
more coming your way.

Free multi-tracks, free files, you heard me
say it at the beginning.

I won’t say it all again.

We’ll catch you in the next one, guys.
