How do you use them on your guitar tracks? I usually HPF @ 100Hz and LPF @ 18KHz...

I'm usually pretty close to that, starting around HP 90Hz and LP16KHZ and adjusting from there.

But, when using IRs I don't apply it to the guitar tracks in my DAW. I use the HP/LP in my AMT Pangaea instead.

That’s about where I highpass/lowpass lead guitars. Rhythm I might come in a little tighter on both ends depending on how the track sounds. Also depends a bit on the bass tone for the highpass in general.

i dunno. it depends entirely on context, tuning, number of guitars, role in the band, and what the arrangement needs. i mean.. if you tune low, 100 hz is like 2nd octave.. in my own band the bassist tunes to e, while guits play in c. so i end up high passing at like 50-60hz. low pass.. also depends on what mic- cause i like ribbons and they roll off hard at 12k, so i leave em up top.. why filter when nothings there unless its tape?

No hard and fast rules for me. But typically high pass anywhere from 75-100hz. Rarely do I lo pass.. but if I do, I come down to around 12khz. Anything above that doesn't really make much a difference to me

I go by ear. Like Newholland said all depends.

I slowly sweep until I hear the change, then I go backwards ever so slightly. It does happen to always end up between 80-100 but I typically record with the same gear.

Same for both Hi and Lo pass. Sweep until you hear the change and then bump it back slightly so you do not overdo it. I learned that on youtube :p

Yeah, I am anywhere between 60-100hz. Lo Pass is "by ear" but I don't know I every go more than16 to 18 kHz. I see people go as low as 12, especially Helix guys but that always seems too much relative to how I dial in tones.

Seems like there wouldn't be much air for the guitars but what do I know.

Side note: I also found that cutting around 6k on the drums actually makes the guitar sound amazing. Try it.

Pretty much depends on the tone and the mix, but quite often I'll have the low-pass rolled down to around 8 to 10 k. But then I'll push up the upper mids and treble in the mix, quite often a high shelf into a low pass is a nice way of making things bright without being harsh.

I think if I was recording hard rock/metal I wouldn't low pass as low.

High pass... depends. Somewhere around 100, but sometimes none, sometimes 2-300hz if it's a small part in an already busy mix.
