VST Plugins

One thing I would really like to see (err, hear) from Progression users is how they use their VST plugins. I am happy to help anyone achieve the sounds I have in use in a couple tunes I have on my notion neighborhood profile, what about you other folks?

From my experience thus far, Revalver is pretty versatile. Its pretty good at most things you might want to do. I am pretty happy with using it for my lead guitar. It is serviceable for the heavy rhythm guitar I prefer, though I have gone with other VST plug-ins for that. I'm still tweaking around with these two but they aren't a glaring hole.

Where I find it lacking most in the "clean" guitar sound. What I am aiming for is something like Opeth's acoustic work. The song "Coil" is a great example.

I can't seem to get anything to sound this good from Progression, but I don't necessarily see a reason that I can't. Does anyone have a VST/VST setting that achieves this sound?

I think the acoustic guitar sound in Progression is stellar! You can use the techniques like hammer on & pull off as well as slides to make it far more "realistic."

Also play around with the tab and different positions. I've gotten some great sounds using these extended techniques....

Well, I never claimed to be smart.

I had been using the electric guitar sounds the whole time. How could I have missed the acoustic?

And yes, they instantly sound a million times better. Wish I wouldn't have overlooked this.
