HI! after a long time struggle with recording amps in home studio, i found one great silent solution, and i found a guitar sound i really can say i am satisfied with.i wanted to share it with you!
i recorded a guitar solo over a groove using gibson 347 ,Vox ac30HW head and one cool cabinet simulator ! Hope you like it! Background groove is from J.Scofield album ,Uberjam! https://soundcloud.com/kristijanf/gibson-347-test-bridge-pick-up
I’ll bite… What’s the cabinet emulator?? Great sound and playing!!
simulator is a hardware unit. Torpedo VB101
Cool… I have heard of the Torpedo stuff… They look really sweet… I like that you can adjust speaker types and “rooms” as well…
I have tried sooooo many stuff. spent so much money, and never got what i wanted. but this time ,i did. cause you still have amp head with tubes giving it natural feel, you do not have to worry about mic placement. your preset is saved, and if you move true mic, you will hardly be able to put it back on same place.here is another one. pretty short ,but you can hear what it is all about : https://soundcloud.com/kristijanf/vox-ac30
I have been micing amps and tried various computer based modeling software, and other hardware, but nothing quite feels right… I need to check out these Torpedo units.
Currently, I have a 1×12 cabinet that stays miced up with a ribbon, and I use various amps and pedals to get what I am after… It works well, but it’s hard to really get an amp working like it needs too… So far, it has been the best solution for me…
Miking amps is always best, but unfortunately i need quiet recording,and need to be able to continue working on the same setup for days.And ribbon that i use would not be able to sit in front of amp, cause i need it all the time for different things.And no matter how close i put it to same position, i cannot repeat same exact sound on the second day..
Great! VoxAC30 is my NO1 choice, and really has special feel to me!
