I'm still a beginner when it comes to reamping and I was just wondering if it is possible. Thanks for your answers!

You can reamp any way you want really. Whatever achieves the best sound for you. That's the beauty of having a clean track already recorded, you can experiment with reamping the track in various ways.

Not entirely sure I understand the question.

Reamping is taking a DI and sending it through an amp, so by definition no you can't reamp without an amp.

Are you saying you have already taken the DI and reamped it through your amp, and now you want to take that signal and run it through an effects pedal? If that's the case then yes you can.

Yes, it is. Depending on your gear, you might not even have to leave the digital realm to do it. For example, the Boss line of processors (GT-10, GT-100, GT-001, etc.) comes with built-in digital interfaces and you can use them to reamp straight through them by selecting their ASIO drivers in your DAW. It is covered in their manual, but I'd be happy to help if needed. I think some of the higher end Line6 devices can also do that, but I am not sure....

If you need to reamp, you usually use a reamp box or run a DI box in reverse.

Where they say passive trnasformer based DI box, I'll add that it usually is put in reverse in order to change the signal impedance coming out from your interface (balanced, Lo-Z) to guitar signal (unbalanced Hi-Z).

So the output from the DAW goes into the output of the passive DI box, and the input of the passive DI box goes into the amplifier of choice or multifx processor. I used to do this with the Radial ProD2 direct boxes that I had in the studio but recently discovered that the specialist device, Radial PRORMP (passive reamp box) is slightly quieter. There are also powered reamp boxes by several manufacturers, with Radial being the leading brand.

You can even build your own as it is quite straightforward, there are plenty of schematics floating on the web, so it could be researched further.
