Re-amping is running your already recorded guitar signal through an amp, it could be an amp simulator but it could also be a real amp.

I would split it up from the rest of the solo and boost the volume to the same as the rest...what did you use to record that?

yeah, I'm working on the drums sound I'll have some more later .

The guitars surprisingly were PODxt. it wast eh recto model. some patch I got of the line 6 site, supposed to sound like KSE. I like it, one of the better ones I've gotten. it's all double tracked. and yeah I'll fix the tapping bit, I'm not completely happy with the end there and the playing. (Arnold voice) *I'll Be Back*

Hi!

I am going through a mid-life thing. Years back I played guitar a little, but could never afford the toys.

I recently got a lot of new toys. B-52 AT-212, Les Paul Standard VCB, BR-1200, pedal board, LOTS of pedals! Got an old Shure wireless, and a Radial Dragster to adjust tone.

Does anyone out there have info about the line out of a B-52 100 watt amp? I would love to be able to play and practice different combinations of pedals...without disturbing anyone. So, you can't install a headphone jack I guess, BUT, I have read that some people use the line out to record to a computer! I am afraid to try it, but I read that you can turn the master volume all the way down and then just use the channel volumes. So, if I can do that, I should be able to run through a mixer or recorder, right? And I am wondering if the line out is a closed circuit, so there is no external sound.

Thanks,
Mike

I've got no experience with B-52s at all...they never really came to the UK

However, on how line outs normally work I can't see that you would be able to use it as a headphone. You might be able to record like you said with the master all the way down, cause it says the line out has it's own volume control. Although, if you can spare the cash...I would recommend against this. Like I said, I don't know about the B-52s, but I've never been impressed with using a line out to record on any amp. If you have the option I would always recommend micing up the cab, I've always found I've had better results doing it that way....

All you can do is try it...you'll need a cab sim though, grab something like lepou lecab and use Ryan's (CatharsisStudio's) impulses...I believe there's a guide at the start of this thread. And don't worry about damaging your amp, as long as there is a load connected (the speaker) you're fine, just don't unplug the speaker

Oh and Boston, that sounds awesome for a patch from a Pod...I swear everytime I hear the results people can get from Pods and Pod Farm when they know what they're doing, it really makes me want to spend more money I don't have! I'm still recovering from the DSL100 I bought on impulse

Hi Brett, I'm Russ *shakes hand*

It sounds real good, the leads aren't quite cutting through as much as I'd like though. The first solo in particular in the second part kinda gets buried underneath the rhythm guitars. 3 solutions:

1) Make them louder, but this can often lead to them being really loud and ruining the mix

2) EQ them to keep them seperate to the rhythm. Rhythm is quite low (pitched) so I reckon a boost somewhere between 3-7 khz could work. I would start around 5 and see, the problem here is it can sometimes end up being really cutting and harsh.

3) Female vocal compressor. This, I have no idea how or why it works....Mark told me to do it one time and it worked wonders so now I do it

Other than that, it sounds awesome, I really like your lead style too, nice and pretty quick, without being overly showy. The only other thing I would change is make the kick drum louder.

Alot of female vocal compressors I've seen work like multi band compressors so they are compressing multiple frequencies. Usually female voice frequencies will be in the "solo" range of guitars.

Hey guys, another clip up. This time it's rhythm only, as that's basically what I've been told (and I want to) improve on tone wise.

http://profile.ultimate-guitar.com/DIMEBAGLIVEDON/

Clip is called "Tone Test Line 6 Pod Farm Half Step Down". Added more presence.

Seems a little distant but when you hit the end of the phrase it feels closer up. Its better but i'd work on getting it as a whole "closer up". What amp model, cab and others things are you using in pod farm



I've got one i did with pod farm. https://dl.dropbox.com/u/4291735/untitled857.wav

There no post fx's minus a compressor. I think i need to turn down the gain a little and fill some of the fizz. Any other thoughts?


heres an acoustic guitar mix i did recently.

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/4291735/charlie%20gore.wav


playing and singing is not mine. guy that is, is a local artist named charlie g.(just check the url if you want his full name, he's on myspace and has other songs up), so all credit to him for singing and guitars and songwriting. I did the mixing

I threw a compressor on the lead tracks and brought drums up 2db.

Thanks for the advice. How would I make it sound more "up-close" like you did?

I personally liked your clip. It's a little boomy though, and I agree on the "fizz" thing. However, the fizz isn't terrible.

I'm using the SLO Model and Marshall JCM 800, both boosted with the screamer. I'm using the noise gate, cavernous reverb, EQ, and compressor as well.

My cabinet's on both are the 4x12 1996 Brit Celestion V-30's, with a 50% room setting, and my mic setting is "On Axis Shure SM57".
