I want to do something a little more in-depth and methodical than this at some point, but I'm kinda sick of making guitar videos for the moment, having just done 10 in 4 days. But this is still fairly useful, I think.
This is one take, routed through all three options at the same time, so you're hearing exactly the same performance through each set-up. The set-ups are:
V:25 > CabClone > Cubase
V:25 > Palmer PDI-03 (simulation on) > Cubase
V:25 > Palmer PDI-03 (no simulation) > Cubase > Redwirez impulses
I didn't really do much with either the CabClone or the Palmer to make them sound similar. I just left them set however they were (CabClone was set to open back, Palmer was set to middle, unlabelled position on both switches). I think they both have a very similar quality regardless of what settings are used, anyway. They both have a fizzy, weird quality I'm not a fan of. They're definitely ok for practicing/tracking, but for a live sound or for recording, I wouldn't want to use either. Once the impulse file kicks in, it instantly sounds significantly better to me.
