been thinking about "Lazer Tone" alot..



I think Ernie Isley basically invented "Lazer Tone" on this one



Apparently he used one of these straight into the desk:

I was going to do a Lazer Tone test with Acon Multiply but it inspired some cheap-ass Andy LaRocque shit instead, but damn do I like how this sounds even in the most basic setting. Will mess with this some more. 




I use the default setting constantly!!! It's always on my lead busses

Nice! sounds pretty good. "Danger Zone" is definitely a Rockman fwiw. 


Try putting this plugin on it: 




It's my favorite stereo spread/harmonizer type plugin and it's free!!

Who cares about the bass and drums (granted, they sound good, but), can we talk about the rhythm guitar tone in this thing? How does one sound like that?

All the 90's amp sim units like The original Pod, Roland VG, Zoom 9002, Johnson J station etc kind of sound like this

Wait are you telling me my VGA7 is actually gonna be cool now



holy shit u have one of those?? hold on to it. 


FWIW Kohta Takahashi told me he used a VG-88 on the Ace Combat 2 stuff. I have one as well and when you run a regular guitar into the amp models its pretty much that tone.

Speaking of "Lazer Tone":





Any tips on how to get my mixes/drums/bass to sound like this? 



Alot of you are talking about beaters and overhead mics but this just sounds like an Alesis Sr-16 and a Roland VG unit DI'd to me. IMO of course.

I think another big part of "Lazer Tone" is an eventide or some other equivalent stereo doubler/chorus. Spreading a mono source out with one of those does something to the hi end that you can't really get with just an eq.

Hi gain fuzz like a big muff or something with maybe a boost/treble boost in front of it.

Alternately just plug a Boss Super OD straight into your sound card.

I was thinking something like a fuzz and a boost, but given when these were made and the tambres of the other instruments I feel like it’s gotta be some kind of GK or ADA air Rockman type deal and an egregious rack. The slides and stuff clean up in a weird way that seems to suggest some kind of weird saturation in like one specific area?


Solarbear and I call this “laser tone” and we are on a quest to harness it and wield this tone live.




Sounds like it could be an amp miced up all nice MIXED with a DI'd distortion pedal in parallel. I do that every once in a while if I need a little added presence on top. Also look into sansamps and rockmans and stuff like that.

Thanks! I think a lot of that is the "stadium kit" from the standard Kontakt library. 


Did a little live performance of "Subroutine" last night: https://www.dropbox....E LIVE.mp4?dl=0


I tried to make it look like an old star licks video or whatever but I'm not sure how cool this is. Probably will just post snippets to instagram but I figure you guys can watch the whole thing

I'm kind of blown away by what you get for the price. Def up there with some made in USA guitars. I'm glad they are leaning into their roots as an 80's custom shop hot rod guitar brand again. People understandably associate schecter with like 2000's nu metal but people forget they made guitars for Mark Knopler, Yngwie, Pete Townshend (hence the name PT) oh and u know... PRINCE. Their custom shop is really cool and they are working on a bunch of new stuff.

So I now have one of these: 


and one of these: Schecter-PT.png

I'm definitely in the honeymoon stage but they're both great! Very impressed with the quality.
