Default Expansion Pack and Acoustic Guitar Video

Hey y'all!

I did a real short video to show the Eleven Rack and the Expansion Packs new PEQ and Dyn3 Compressor in action.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0w5PjuzbAWo

It was really great being able to record acoustic straight to the Eleven Rack in low latency mode finally without feeling like I needed to add compression on the actual track in ProTools. The less plug-ins the better as far as I'm concerned!

So it's a short piece of an instrumental I wrote and basically a one take, two tracks recorded simultaneously deal...

1) A mono dry mic signal.
2) A stereo wet mic signal.

I mixed in the dry track about 70% or so in with the stereo track to give a little room ambience and to capture more tone from the guitar.

LOVING the Exp Pack AGAIN... have I said that already?

I am really new to recording acoustic myself so any tips, critiques are certainly welcome as always!

As always, thanks in advance for your time. :)

I'm sorry I didn't mention it in my YouTube comment, but, thanks for showing us, well, at least me anyway, the settings you used on the comp/PEQ. I almost wish I hadn't sold my acoustic now .

Anyone have one that they want to sell or even better giveaway .

That sounded great! That sound is on of the reasons I fell in love with acoustic guitars in the first place! Very nice!

Could you maybe also make a preset for an acoustic guitar that is plugged in, cause I don't have a nice mic to play with :)
