    I’m looking for an interface, and I want to record guitar DI using amp sims/VST’s. If it will make a big difference I can also purchase a separate DI box, but I prefer not to. Just looking for the best quality interface for guitar DI and amp sims. Top suggestions I see are Focusrite (Scarlett)...

    I've been playing around with this plugin lately, and I have to admit, it is phenomenal! Probably the best out-of-the-box tone I've ever had with any device or software ever.

    Hey I'm going to be getting set up soon with a home studio, and before I buy anything like amplitube or metal amp room, I'd like to try out some of the free stuff available. I researched a little and stumbled across LePou amp sims and LeCab. Do I need seperate impulses to make LeCab run...

    Axe-Fx II Firmware 19.00 Released If you use drive blocks in front of your amp sims, you need this update. I had to tweak some parameters after the update, but it's worth it. The drives do a better job of seasoning the amp sound now rather than overwhelming it.

    I've been wanting a load box that can drop my Boogie down to manageable volumes but also has some kind of out to an interface or desk for PA. I want it attenuated in both situations though. I was reading about the Palmer but apparently when you run it through a cab as well it is not attenuated...

    I'm almost finished getting my modeling rig together (waiting for the monitors to be delivered) and I and to eventually record stuff when I have some tones tweaked to my liking. My DAW is Cubase LE5 which came with my RP255, any of you guys have any experience with it? And also how do drums...

    I'm trying to record with my guitar plugged in to a Focusrite 2i4, with one of our beloved VST amp sims (tried LePou and TSE) and an impulse loader on the armed track with monitoring on. Everything (including live monitoring during playback) is fine, although with pretty high cpu utilization...

    Age old questions, but I'd still like y'all's inputs. All recordings I make have to much pick noise. I'm not looking for a legato sound, but every pick attack is too audible. When I apply an amp sim they get even worse, reduced to digital-sounding static ("chip-chip-chip" at every note) in an...

    I dont have a very good bass amp for tracking. Anyone got a good free bass amp sim they can recommend?

    Ok, so due to possibly a new arrival for Christmas, I'm gonna try and let this go. I don't want to but, having two LNG's is kind of silly and I prefer the seven string version MUCH more. This is an awesome guitar no less. It's basically an LNG Jem without the worry of actually owning an...

    SM Pro v-pedal - a self contained VST host in hardware. Feed amp sims and other vsts into it via usb and make your own custom signal chain. Like a diy axe fx? ;-). Cool idea as hell if you ask me! http://www.osirisguitar.com/hardware-pedal-for-vst-amp-sims/

    I'v been dabbling with some amp sims lately and get decent results. I'v heard some people get amazing results. I guess my issue with them is that i cant listen to my playing with the processing on it in real time. I get latency. The only way i'm able to use them is to split my guitar signal and...

    The story of the LGM Leviathan is a very sad one but hopefully its starting to look up. It's still hard to talk about. The wound is still too fresh. I originally ordered my Leviathan from Jeremy Ferguson over at LGM. It was a piece of artwork...Quilted maple..Carriburst finish...leviathan...

    Thinking about the LNG Jem Ibby copy he has. Always wanted one, probably wont be able to afford one that I would risk playing every week at the gigs though. I know he has a bit of a bad wrap, but is it because of timelines or shitty work? I did some searching everyone seems to dig his work...

    Please nothing illegal...you know the drill. Especially if you have something that is rare/hard to find. I have some brands i've never heard of before actually such as Alliston, Cambrige, Harvard, Leicester, Mansfield, Oakdale, Oxford, Princeton, Rockport, Rutland, etc. I also have a folder...

    I'm using POD Farm, and I like it, but I would like to be able to turn off the amp models, so that I'm just using the cab models. That way, I can run my own external preamp into the input, and still make use of the cab / mic models from Line-6. I know you can do this with the PODxt / PODx3...
