Anyone use reamping for their takes? I'm trying to figure it all out and I'm interested to know what others are up to. For the best mixes you might hand over a track without reverb say, but you have to rely on whomever is engineering to put it back the way you intended (depth, tone, whatever.)
Hmm...yes, in a way. In all projects I've done to kopoz.com I've used Line6 toneport and recorded only dry singnal. For effects and amp modelling I used toneports modelling software. Toneport lets you play with effects and amp simulation on while it reckods dry signal. Easy sollution for people who live in small appartment.
Yeah, I'm a dedicated headphone guitarist as well with a podxt. I've found that a lot of the time when recording it comes down to getting inspired takes vs hassling with reamp settings since I generally run through a number of takes that I monitor then discard. I have gotten into the habbit of not baking in effect which I think is a smart first step. I guess what I really need to do is perfect a workflow in FL Studio that makes the process as fast as possible and thereby more likely that I'll use it.
I use Line 6 POD Farm 2.0 and find a tone that's close to what I want to monitor while I'm recording, but I'm only sending the "dry" signal to the DAW. Then, once I'm happy with the take, I will use POD Farm 2.0 VST plug-in to "re-amp" my dry signal. That way I can tweak the tone while the take is being looped to get it just right.
As I was investiigating the workflow I mentioned earlier I found that I can put the modeling effects on a send track in the daw. This seems like it might ease the burden of multiple amp models running in tandem when the tone setting are all the same - i.e. five guitars all with Marshall/Greenback tones. I'm experimenting to see if this does what I expect.
