ToonTrack‘s next release for Metal Month is an expansion pack for their popular EZMix software, titled Metal Guitar Gods 2. This expansion contains guitar and bass amp models designed by Chris Broderick, Tosin Abasi, Jeff Loomis, and Ryan Knight. As a songwriting tool, especially, having the ability to just drop in a killer guitar tone based on one of your favorite players is where it’s at. Sure, I love tweaking to get the perfect tone for production purposes, getting a final tone that will actually go on the record, but for demos, songwriting, and practice, I want instant gratification. The pack contains no less than 50 tones, so I think you’ll likely have plenty you can use.
Last year’s Metal Guitar Gods pack was a pretty big hit, featuring Misha Mansoor, Fredrik Thordendal, Mattias “IA” Eklundh, and Devin Townsend, so now you can collect the whole set.
Here’s Ryan Knight giving you a taste of some of the sounds you can get with Metal Guitar Gods 2:
From the company:
YOU TOO CAN SOUND LIKE A GOD.
50 godlike tones, all personally designed by four of modern metal’s most interesting names.
This expansion for EZmix 2 comes with guitar and bass settings directly modeled and EQ-matched from the personal tones of four of modern metal’s most interesting players: Chris Broderick (Megadeth), Tosin Abasi (Animals As Leaders), Jeff Loomis (ex-Nevermore, Conquering Dystopia) and Ryan Knight (The Black Dahlia Murder). It includes 50 custom amp and cab simulated tones, all of which were personally designed by the guitarists themselves.
This collection paints a broad picture of modern metal guitar of today. Find the soaring, saturated leads, the pummeling rhythm tones and all the tight semi-clean, ambient and effect soaked tones you’ll need for any spur-of-the-moment creativity.
This collection is a speed-dial to the tones you hear on albums and that the artists use themselves in their own recording and creative processes. You too can sound like a god.
• Approx. 50 guitar or bass settings based on amp and cab simulation
