The last one! Talking about guitars production in PT, in your opinion what would be the balance between the guitar sounds that were made from a tradicional guitar recording way (Guitar/Reamp + Pedals + Amps + Mics + Preamps) from those that could have come from plug ins or digital processors such as Line 6 PODs, etc? Expressed in percentange, could you give us a relation?
I'd like to ask you all this questions in person and learn from you for sure, but I live in Argentina and I guess were live a little bit far way.
Thanks a lot John!
90 percent real guitars... 10 percent plug ins etc.... all the plug in guitars are the extreme effect guitars and some of the extreme clean guitars...everything else mostly real.... JW

I assume that a lot of layers were recorded and blended together, but I'd like if you could share information about:
- the mics used (which one to get what result in which bandwith along the frecuency spectrum: AKG 414 / Shure SM57 / sennheiser MD 421 ?),
- what were the guitars used to get those tones(PRS Custom / Gibson Les Paul ?)
- what were the guitar amps and cabinets used (Mesa Boogie?).
An extra question goes about ambiance miking and mixing:
- Have you used them to get this kind of tones?
- If you did, what kind of room is needed to set that guitar wall in the mix then (small room / mid room / big room??)
- Was it mono/ST, more than than one mic ?
- How do you get space left for voices after that amazing guitar wall? Whats the trick to pay attention on?
