Amp simulators

For everything after the recording stage: hardware/software and how you use it.

I'm starting to prefer thinking of timescales like that in millennia, as then it's only 1/40th :lol:

1. A great amp, well-mic'd in a room that's not causing problems.

2. A great amp, via a really good reactive load (like the Suhr for example), to an excellent impulse response. I put this above the Kemper, because I like the ability to fiddle with the amp at tracking, and while you can sort of do this with a Kemper, it's not the same.

3. A Kemper

4. A real amp via UA Ox.

5. A plug in amp like the Scuffham, or UAD etc

6. A compromised 'real' recording - wrong amp, wrong room, wrong mic, poor positioning, attenuation applied too strongly etc

7. The wrong impulse response or Kemper profile etc - there are some good ones, and some shockers.


if I'd do that list I'd place the OX in no. 2 and the IR's behind the plugins... I don't really like IR's myself

I'm still using the Softube amp sims years after they were released. They are very useful.

here some videos I did with the OX with different amps and guitars, in case it is of someone's interest:

Fano ML6 - DrZ Remedy - 1x12 Alnico blue emulation
https://youtu.be/Ygwkf_CC7Xc

Posh R6 replica - Dr Z Remedy - 1x12 Deluxe Reverb cab emulation
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kr7VGa0m6dY

Gretsch Duo Jet - Supro 1624T - 1x12 Alnico Blue emulation
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8KLXs9kw1c&t=9s

And this one is a comparison between a DI Kemper profile of my Supro VS the amp itself with the OX. I'm using the Deluxe Reverb cab emulation in the OX and the cab from a Deluxe reverb in the Kemper. The guitar is a Les Paul R9

this last video is the proof that not all amp-cab combination in OX give good results :lol:
