Manage the Stereo Image of an Ambient Guitar Recording

Work on the mid-2014 album progresses! In this “recording techniques” installment, I share some lessons I’ve learned about controlling and fine-tuning the stereo image of a recorded ambient guitar track.

Equipment used:
Fender Blacktop Telecaster Baritone
Avid Eleven Rack
Strymon Timeline
TC Electronic Ditto X2 Looper
Morley L’il Alligator Volume Pedal
Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 firewire audio interface

Signal path — Telecaster direct to Eleven Rack to effects out to volume pedal to looper to Timeline to effects in to Focusrite
