...or always make sure you record a DI, so Melodyne becomes an option.

Abs +1.

I spend a lot of time recording electric guitar for sample and loop packs.

Recording DI is a godsend - edit the DI then reamp. The ability to adjust the tone into the amp during the reamp phase, blend mics etc, is a joy - possible to drop the tone right into the slot.

Yes I always record a DI as well although lately I hardly ever use it anymore as I try to commit to a sound while recording. It’s good to have the option for re-amping though.
