So I've been trying to get some kind of grasp of the thousands of metal tones in the rig exchange. Instead of just randomly recording stuff here and there like I usually do I figured I'd try a bit more organized approach and recorded a short snippet with each tone, dubbed it four times and panned 100%.
There is some slight compression on every tone (to a max of about- 3dB) and some conservative EQ on some tones (some 0,5 dB cuts around 200 Hz and a hi-pass filter at around 50 Hz) just to get a bit more clarity. I also added a limiter on the master track. Other than that the sounds are completely raw. All guitar tracks are normalized and I tried my best to adjust the volume to make everything sound roughly at the same level but some of the more scooped tones sound like they are a bit lower in the mix.
Some recordings are tighter than others and some are a bit out of tune, but I figured there's always someone who might find this useful besides me.
