I tried to improve my guitar tone based on comments I got on my other projects. I failed miserably, but I wrote this anyways, so here you go. I think it's marginally better mixed, at least. Might be closer to hard rock than metal, but whatever.
1.2.0-rc2 breaks this because it doesn't correctly reassign the controllers to match its new organizational scheme, so use an older version. Also see my note about the bugged crash sample: https://lmms.io/lsp/?action=show&file=10821
Is this a real word, or did Danbooru make it up?

Yes, closer to hard rock than metal.
To complexify the sound of guitars, it would almost automate several parameters at a time, note by note ... hard
Maybe you can magnify the sound of each guitar with clones. For example, you clone guitar A, and you slightly modify the characteristics of the clone A * (envelope DAHDSR, a small delay, a different EQ, even hard clipping, I do not know). In short, the idea is to work by layer, a guitar = several synths that play the same score.
Anyway, a synth is not a guitar. You can renew the codes of the genre, make an electro-synthetic, keeping the spirit of metal, but not its sonority, developing your own sonority ...

sorry, I wanted to say "an electro-synthetic metal" ...Posted by: D.Ipsum on 2017-05-27 02:21:38
@acemil Haha, thanks. Making this reminded me why I don't do long songs these days, especially in LMMS...
@D.Ipsum Good thoughts. I've played with layered sounds a bit, but haven't come up with anything I really like yet. As far as varying parameters per-note, for this song, I tried attaching peak controllers to the guitar waveforms before distorting them, then using that to modulate their tone. It's a little janky, but I think it improves the quality of the palm mute parts. And your English is fine, no worries.Posted by: supper66 on 2017-05-28 15:40:56
@supper66, thanks. Do you play guitar and drums ? In a band ? Posted by: D.Ipsum on 2017-06-02 10:37:38

Sorry for the late response, I didn't realize you'd replied. Haha, no, I wish. Only thing I can play is the piano, and I'm abysmal at it. I try to copy real techniques for other instruments as well as I can, though. Not sure how much of this is actually performable.Posted by: supper66 on 2017-06-12 02:34:25
