Meet Your Instructor – Scott Elliott
I’m Scott from Chernobyl Studios, and I’m just like you: a home studio musician and mixing engineer. From the beginning of my journey, all I ever wanted was to have a big, massive, metal guitar tones and mixes that I could be proud of.
In 2013, I started to study mixing and tone crafting more seriously so I could bring this desire to life. What I didn’t know was that I was venturing into a world of conflicting information and secrecy. Maybe it sounds a bit dramatic, but how many times have you seen a video on YouTube that claimed you could “sound like the pros in minutes,” just to find out they have thousands of dollars in gear and plugins and really didn’t explain anything anyway? These videos never helped me get a better idea of how to create my guitar tones or better mixes.
I wasted money on plugins I didn’t need, followed advice that wasn’t helpful, and made every mistake you can think of multiple times over. 6 years of frustration later and I now know what it takes to create great amazing guitar tones and mixes.
My goal is to sift through the noise, filter out the nonsense, and create content that helps you avoid the years of struggle and frustration that I had to endure.
Does this sound like you?
Are you struggling to understand how you can make your perfect metal guitar tone a reality with amp simulators?
Furthermore, how many hours have you spent trying to make sense of all those cabinet impulse responses you just picked up?
And how many amp simulators have you bought in search of your own ‘Holy Grail’ guitar tone?
The good news is you already have everything you need to make sick guitar tones; you just need a guide on how to create them.
Guitar Tone Mastery is that guide as a complete training system that teaches you how to pick the right cabinet impulse response, refine it with the tone stack, and put on the finishing touches with post-processing.
This is a step-by-step training system—not a collection of presets.
However, Guitar Tone Mastery did not always exist…
I struggled for many years, watching every YouTube video and reading every piece of information I could get about creating guitar tones.At the end of the day, I simply could never quite get it…Was I using the wrong set of impulses? Did I have the wrong amp simulator?
Was I dialing in the amp simulator incorrectly? Was I using the wrong plugins?
Many years and thousands of hours later, it dawned on me…
I was going about this process entirely in the wrong way! After I realized where I was messing up, I finally was able to achieve the tones I was looking for.
Once I had repeated this process a few times, it occurred to me that something amazing had happened… The method I had created literally meant that I had unlocked the ability to create any tone I wanted.
I use this exact method today to create tones I hear in my head in mere minutes—something that used to take me hours years ago.
I promise you this: you will be able to take the methodology presented in this training and gain the tools you need to train your ears and skills so that you can take any amp simulator, impulse response, and shape it however you want.
What are you going to learn?
In short, you will learn a proven, step-by-step method for creating massive guitar tones that you are hearing in your head with amp simulators. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
You will learn:
Additionally, an ear training demonstration is included that shows how you can start training your ears to listen to the frequencies you are looking for so that you can spend minutes finding the perfect cabinet impulse response instead of hours.
Finally, if you think that this training is not for you because you do not have a great guitar or audio interface, then you will be happy to know that inside Guitar Tone Mastery, I use budget-level gear, and I prove through demonstration how to get great metal tones with budget level gear.
Seriously, when you get this step-by-step process under your belt, creating your own guitar tones will take minutes instead of hours.
Pick up this training today and achieve the crushing metal guitar tones you have been looking for… the only thing you risk losing are crappy guitar tones!

Like many other guitarists, I just don't have all the "correct" gear or a place to crank it up to record a great guitar tone. So, I turn to amp simulators to compensate. By doing so I can keep everything within the box, with the exception of vocals.

Keep up the great tones. Thank you.”
