Tone Hunting
You need that outstanding tone you are hearing on your favorite album. So you bought an awesome instrument and a fantastic amp. Maybe you have also bought some beautiful stomp boxes, expensive rack units and phenomenal microphones. You use many hi-end plug-ins.
But what? Your dream-tone is not there when recorded and mixed with the rest of the band? You are endlessly tweaking and tweaking your sound, you tried everything. No success.

Why?
Acoustic instruments can take a lot of processing even the natural tone is needed. It's because of the context. Acoustic instruments can fight against busy arrangement with several layers of instruments clashing into each other. Or the recordings are sounding too sterile, thin or harsh. So you need the tone that can cut through. The tone has to be harmonically rich and fat sounding, but it also needs to have a lot of clarity and tightness at the same time. But it's not all. Even if the instrument is heavily processed, it also has to be very natural sounding at some point so everyone knows what instrument is played.

And that's why you need ToneSpot.

Let's Talk Engineering For A While, Shall We?

"When a professional audio engineer is building that awesome tone in the studio, he is often running it through some heavy lifting. Blending several re-amping chains with massive filtering, heavy compression, equalization, saturation or even some multiband processing and maybe some other crazy stuff. And it is no secret that the top engineers often run the signal through their chains twice or three times in series until both the engineer and the artist are 100% satisfied with the result. So there is a lot of stuff to do when building a perfect tone.

There are very few products tailored for acoustic instruments post-processing, but most today's engineers use very similar workflow."

What Matters? Music Or Sound?

Both.

Great musical ideas need a great sound. Music industry changed over years. The quality of sound and sound aesthetics often determine the success of the music. It's not enough to write good music anymore. You need breathtaking sound to get attention.

And...
If you have an inspiring sound, you write and play better music.
You have the ideas, we have the tool, so...
Lets get inspired by the sound.
