music, guitars & other obsessions

Guitar Sims – Again…

Taking a breather from amp building, this morning I tried a very simple setup and fired up the guitar sims, guess what, I forgot how good they can sound! In fact, the real amps are really too loud for the studio…

Anyway, I ran the guitar through the Fat Booster with all the settings at the noon position. Adjusted the gain in the sims, and was able to get a good clean signal. Went through various pre-sets and adjustments on the sims, sure was a lot of fun.

I also listened to the Six String Bliss podcasts, and many tracks on the compilation were done with Line6 or Amplitude on the PCs, and those sounded pretty good as well (at least for MP3 quality on headphones). So yet more things to play with in the future.

Now back to amp building…
