Here are some of the best free guitar cabinet impulse responses for metal.

Check them out, put them on almost any guitar amp sim and they sound good.  Make sure to disable the cabinet emulation in the amp simulator first before running the tone through these.

You can also run your tube or solid state guitar amp in direct to your recording interface (with the effect send jack), then put these cabinet emulations in there.

It took me a very long time to get a pretty good tone with the native guitar rig 5 cab sims.  It took me almost no time to get a good tone with the catharsis impulses.

Mixing Tips: Parallel Compression

Mixing Tip: Parallel Compression

This video will show you how to use parallel compression on guitar and drums

Mixing tips are just that, tips… Try them out on your mixes and see if it works for you and the sounds you have going on.

Parallel compression is copying a signal or sending the signal to a group track, compressing that copied signal, then mixing the compressed signal back in with the original signal.  This will usually make the tone jump out a bit more or be slightly more forward without killing the dynamics of the original signal.

This, like most mixing tips is a subtle thing.  It will not change the sound night and day.  You want to start off with a very good sound already, then manipulate it subtly to get it to the professional sounding level.
