Jackson 7-string sound samples

If you’ve been following my Twitter stream, you know that I’m reviewing a new 7-string Jackson guitar. Many of you have asked for sound samples using a variety of products, so I put together a number of them for you.

The music is the same in each sample so you can hear the differences.

This one is using my 5150 head through a Marshall 4×12 1960a, a Shure SM57 into my Universal Audio Apollo and then into Pro Tools.

This one is using Line 6′s Pod Farm with the guitar going directly into my Universal Audio Apollo and then into Pro Tools.

This one is using IK Multimedia’s AmpliTube 3 with the guitar going directly into my Universal Audio Apollo and then into Pro Tools.

This one is using Native Instrument’s Guitar Rig 5 with the guitar going directly into my Universal Audio Apollo and then into Pro Tools.

    The Guitar Rig 5 is my favorite by far. Great clean sound with the crunch you expect from a heavy guitar piece. Some of the others were a bit too “muddy” for my taste.

    The Jackson sounds amazing. Must be a hell of allot of fun to play!

      Yeah, I didn’t mix the tracks on purpose. I wanted the raw sound, not what could be fixed in the mix.

    Apart from the 5150 and the Marshall, I prefer the Amplitube 3 and the Guitar Rig 5.

    What do you have the strings tuned to?

    That is one good looking beast.

    I preferred the Amplitube clip.

    The 5150 sounds the best, by a mile, it’s not even close. Maybe that’s just me though.
