Hi, I have Ableton suite 8, and need to know how to get a powerful modern distortion on my gibson like the band "Green day", after recording the guitar on an audio trak any ideas? I will appreciate it

Suite 8 give me all kinds of possibilities and even if I got good guitar effects... I dont seem to get that powerful modern punk or metal kind of sound like Billy Joe (Green Day) has on his Gibson. Please help. Thank you

    Have you considered using hardware? Like a good distortion pedal?
    Or have a look at Guitar Rig etc. From Native Instruments. Plenty of choice, so why only use Live devices.

    Suite 8 comes with some modeling devices. Check out Amp and Cabinet.

    You're also listening to a top notch mix and mastered track. I'm sure they are using parallel compression to beef up the sound as well.

    But at the end of the day, if you want a really great guitar tone, you need really good equipment. Nothing beats a nice guitar going through a great amp turned up to 11.

    if you don`t want to spend your money for hardware or 3rd partie plug-ins try a  combination of Amp, Cabinet, saturation and NY-compression
