I finished writing a song the other day but when I started recording guitar parts and when playing on the high strings a clicking sound made by my pick is being recorded louder then the actual note. Does anyone know how to get rid of this clicking by maybe using EQ or some kind of noise reduction, or just eliminate it from being recorded all together? Technical details would be that I'm recording through a Line 6 Toneport UX2 into Logic Pro 8.

Change your picking technique.

Or, maybe play lead stuff with the neck pickup. It tends to have a softer attack.

Holy fucking necro bump batman

High pass gets rid of lows, low pass gets rid of highs.

Change your picking technique.

This. It sounds like you're holding your pick at too much of an angle. Try keeping it a bit more flat to the string. Although, you'll probably never read this considering the fact that you haven't logged in to the site in about 5 months.

I had problems like that too and that helped. I also used lighter picks so you don't get such a harsh attack on the strings. If you don't want to switch to your neck pick up, just roll your tone off on the bridge and that may help a bit to cut some of the high end out and dampen the pick attack. But my biggest problem was actually the bridge pick up in one of my guitars. It was picking up room noise and the other instruments especially the drums. Didn't notice this until after I tracked an entire cd. We went back and muted all the tracks but mine and you could hear the drums clear as day like they were in a coffee can. I wound up having to change pick ups but it was for the best though.

I don't care how old the post is. I think it is still relevant to a lot of people here as a lot of us do play in bands and record. Sharing the info helps everyone

I play with 2mm picks... I actually find it helps my speed and control. But to each, their own.

1mm Dunlops for me. I tried some of those stubby jazz ones awhile back, but I kept dropping them. I guess I'm too used to my dinner plate picks.

Back on topic, I actually like putting a little of that angled pick scratchiness into chugs. Makes them seem more aggressive to me.

L&M stopped carrying the Rock Control I wanted so I just order direct now.  Free shipping if you order 2 things, plus you get a free sample package.  Let me know if you want me to order you anything, I'm down to my last package so I'll probably be ordering some more before the year is out.
