That looks promising. I'll experiment with the multiple synths route and mute and bounce. I didn't know about the free drum VSTs either, so I'll check them out too.
Thanks for those suggestions, much appreciate your help.
Hi. I'm new to Cakewalk by Bandlab and have been looking at Studio Instruments Drums. There isn't a channels mixer in SI Drums to enable output of each drum sound to individual tracks? I'm planning on mainly using clips but would still like to be able to separate out and tweak individual drum tracks without mountains of cutting and pasting. Does anyone know of an easy work around to do this?
Yes, I've noticed EZ Drummer 2 (looks great!) and similar software, but would rather not be shelling out £100 plus at this stage of the learning process...
I used a Focusrite Scarlett Solo. Excellent interface. Just DI, completely dry guitar. Used to have an M-Audio Fast Track but had problems with popping, crackle and drop out because they stopped supporting and updating it's drivers some while ago.
I will be experimenting with plugging in from a real amp and pedals if I can get the gain down low enough, also with using a real mic positioned to a real amp.
Thanks for that, sounds great! I should say that I only recently started exploring Cakewalk by Bandlab and I think it's brilliant that it's available for free with everything that comes with it. I'm quite new to working with DAWS software, especially software as sophisticated as this, and I'm still finding my way around. I'm only just beginning to appreciate it's huge potential. Many thanks again for your input.
That's really useful because co-incidentally, I recently recorded some audio guitar and applied the TH3 amp sim (Tweed Deluxe) and tubescreamer. I thought something must be wrong somewhere because it sounded very muddy to me, with no dynamic. I've just gone through your video and was relieved to find that you seem to have had the same result with the Tweed Deluxe.
This is very odd. I actually have a real Fender Tweed Blues Deluxe and Tubescreamer and the output from these both individually and combined is nothing like the software representation...
Did you find that the other amp sims were nearer to the real thing?

Thanks Willard, looks good. Definitely worth a go.
