Black (Metallica Black album inspired tone)


Category: Tags: , ,

One of Metallica’s most successful albums is without a doubt the Black album featuring tracks like Enter Sandman and Nothing Else Matters. This album had such an iconic guitar tone because of what Bob Rock did in the studio. It’s hard to get the exact same tone because the album tone was heavily edited and used a lot of amps and microphone combinations.

  • Scene A is the Black distortion
  • Scene B is the clean Jazz Chorus sound Metallica used on tracks like the intro of Enter Sandman and Nothing Else Matters

Demo 1 — Distortion

Demo 2 — Clean

Disclaimer: Like most presets, don’t expect a plug and play experience. Depending on your guitar, pickups, strings and playing, this preset might sound different after purchase. Where possible, we will assist all customers with tweaking their presets to get their desired tone. All of the demos that you hear of these presets are not mastered; they have not been mixed in any way and are not double-tracked. All demos are single-tracked guitars. For clone presets especially, what you hear in the song is a result of layered tracks, production and other studio additions to get that sound, the guitars themselves in the mix sound different.

Important: After placing your order, please allow upwards of 24 hours for your presets to be made available. Due to how the Neural DSP Cortex Cloud currently works, you will need to befriend our profile, and presets will be shared with you. Make sure you add the user “Beggars” on Cortex Cloud.
