How's this being recorded?


Is the amp in another room or is it a simulated amp, I've never really been able to tell. Cos when I record my Les Paul there's a little hum coming from the amp and I have no clue how to get rid of it, and was wondering if it's a DI and fake amp at the beginning of that video.

thanks
Mike

There is always a little hum and noise going on with hi gain guitars, it doesn't matter whether it's a real amp or a sim.
In a full arrangement like that you just can't hear it.
If the guitar is the only instrument that can be heard like in an intro or something
the notes will be louder (hopefully) than the noise.
So normally the only time noise can be a problem is when you do not play.
You can use a noise gate or edit the noisy parts out in your DAW.

To reduce noise try to move your guitar around the room .
You'll find spots where the noise is almost inaudible and others where it's really loud.

God, I hope Green Day is not using fake amps.

Its very common to put the amp heads in the control room and put the speakers out the in the live room. The upside to that is its really easy and comfortable for everyone to work together. The downside is that you loose the interaction of the amp and the guitar (feedback, vibrations, etc)

yeah - sit further from your amp -

Also try sitting at right-angles to the amp - i.e. headstock at right-angles to the front of the amp - tha often reduces the hum.

Got a Marshall and a 4x12?

Give Butch Vig a call! heh
