  1. Thanks for the tips, so how do you understand if the pedal is ok for line level signal? Didn’t get that
  2. Right I get it man, so I’m out of budget for buying a interface with 3 inputs, so I might renounce to record and re-amp at the same time, I will do that in a second take. So basically you need the re-amp box just if you use a real amp but not just for the effect pedals. So no need of a re-amp option neither in the audient interface, at this point it’s just a simple choice between the focusrite 2i2 and this audient sono. The only cool thing about the audient is that is a tube preamp, so you can go directly into the DAW with a warm tube guitar sound, but at that point I don’t know how much sense it has to use the amp sim, since the interface would have already its own sound, and I ‘m afraid I would be limited by that.
  3. This post is about using the boss pedal as re-amp, it's a different question.
  4. Hi guys, so I'm recording at home my guitar with Cakewalk, using an Amp sim in within the DAW from Overloud. Now I would like to use my DD-200 Boss pedal as an effect instead of the plugins within the DAW. For convenience I would like to be able to re-amp the delay effect for the following reasons: - The effects should sound better after distortion (amp sim in my DAW) as it is usually placed at the end of the signal chain - If I place the delay effect before the audio interface and before getting into my daw the guitar will be recorded with the delay, not clean, this means that if I would like to change the delay settings after recording for some reason (like delay time, intensity, type or whatever) or maybe because I notice some mistake, I will need to record everything again, while if I re-amp the delay I can re-play the clean track recorded in my daw, and re-amp it back with the delay where I would be free to change the settings. Now, I have read that instead of buying a re-amp box, I could use whatever Boss pedal (like my boss tuner for instance) as a reamp box, because apparently it has the same functionality, watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-RUSK9nOeQ Can you confirm this can be done? Also, since I have an interface with only one input, it's a really basic Seinberg UR12, I would need to buy a new audio interface so that with 2 inputs/outputs I can re-amp it. I'm just a bit struggling to understand which one would better fit for my needs. I would like, if possible, to be able to not switch cables and do re-amping in the second step after recording, but I would like to be able to do that simultaneusly, with that I mean recording the clean track while reamping at the same time, because I would need to hear the Boss DD-200 effect while I record the track. So based on these infos, how many output/inputs I would need to have in my audio interface? I'm considering these 2 models, of course there is a big difference in price, so I would like to get the Focusrite 2i2, but not sure if with those 2 line outputs would be enough, maybe I could use the headphone output to be able to listen to the track while I record, and the 2 line outputs on the back to re-amp? Or do I need to get the 4i4 Focusrite? Please notice the delay pedal effect would be better recorded in stereo, in any case I should also consider the price difference, if it worth it. 2i2 4i4
  5. ah ok, so you split one guitar signal to the delay and one to the interface directly through the Boss tuner, I get it, but this doesn't solve the problem you cannot anyway change the delay amount/time/delay type and all the pedal settings, if you make a mistake or you figure out something after you recorded and you want to change it, you have to record it again. What you are doing is to record a track with delay and one without it, but still you are recording with the delay, while if you use the re.amp box you can just play the "clean" guitar already recorded in your DAW and press REC on the empty track where the delay effect is applied and redirected through the re-amp box. Not sure I explained myself. Also in any case you are firstly passing through the delay pedal first, not after, which still by default the distortion should be applied before the effects.
  6. mmm, I get it guys, I understand what you are saying but I'm a bit sceptical. Anyway I asked a friend who has a recording studio, the difference is that if you place the delay pedal before everything, after recording you cannot change anything, if you made a mistake, you have to record it again. For instance you didn't set up the delay time properly with the song, or you want to change something, maybe too much delay or too less, you have to record again everything, while with the re-amp box you can always change the delay settings after recording because you recorded the clean guitar without effects. In terms of sound is relative, usually it should go after the distortion, but as you said someone use it before, it shouldn't be a big deal. So this is the main issue, not the sound. I might buy it at the end.
  7. Sorry I didn’t explain myself well maybe. I won’t record with a real amp, because I’m home recording and I live in a condominium, so I just can’t, I don’t have a studio. I use the amp sim from Cakewalk, which is great, and my guitar jack goes directly into my interface. Now I want to use my delay Boss pedal, as an effect, and that should go after the amp, not before, at least if I want to record a proper sound correct??? then I should need a re-amp box correct?
  8. I know! But since I’m recording an album is pretty different from just playing live.
  9. I understand, I could use the Overloud plugin effects and save money, they are ok. But on this particular delay pedal there is an amazing shimmer delay sound much better than that in Overloud. So maybe I’m making too much mess for this shimmer delay, but sound so good, and also the way I have to play this shimmer delay is like a violin sound, so I use the Ernie ball volume pedal together with the delay to make this Orchestra violin sound with the guitar, that would be impossible to play from within the plugins in my daw.
  10. I don’t do live, only studio recording. I don’t care about live, I’m talking about the studio recording, normally the delay should be placed after the distortion, since I’m not using a distortion pedal But an amp sim software, or normally I anyway always use the amp distortion, then I need to go from my DAW to the delay pedal, then back from the delay to the DAW again through my audio interface, this is possible only with the re-amp box. now Im just wondering whether this big change in sound quality worth the money cause I have to buy a new audio interface and the re-amp box, everything would cost 200 bucks. not sure it’s clear enough
  11. No it doesn’t it’s a simple Boss pedal with jack input. I didn’t understand why the DI box would be fine, I thought I read that’s for other stuff, the re-amp box is what I need, not DI box. I found one for 60 euros
  12. This is because you are using the distortion pedal and you can place it before the delay, I use the amp distortion so the only way to place the delay after the amp is to use a re-amp box.
  13. Hi there! I'm recording some stuff at home and I have purchased a very cool delay pedal for guitar I would like to use in some of my tracks. I'm recording with cakewalk and and amp sim from Overloud. Now, I don't have a re-amp box in order to place my delay pedal after the amp sim in my DAW, as it is usually recommended. Is it really much better in terms of sound quality to place the delay pedal after the amp with the re-amp box? Or is just fine for the guitar to pass to the delay pedal first and then to the amp sim in the daw? Do you suggest me to buy a re-amp box? Thanks in advance.
  14. This is the track, is it too quiet in your opinion? try to compare it with some other references. Skip the first part is only solo https://drive.google.com/file/d/1VNQJSj152Zxw1PFJGIHYQAMPEb89fZY9/view?usp=sharing
  15. @Craig Anderton Yes Indeed, my friend who's a mixing engineer and did some mastering before, told me that he mastered my tracks to stay at around -14 LUFS int because more than that would sound worst, I think he means that would sound too hot and harsh, at the same time I have to be happy with the volume not being too loud, at least not as loud as my other reference tracks. Thing that bothers me is not when I listen to the record on speakers or amplifiers, but when I listen to it from my mobile phone, iPhone in my case, which has a maximum level to protect ear damage which is not in relation with lufs, so if the song is low I cannot raise the volume until a certein point. I'm not sure he took into account the low frequencies being too high
  16. There you go indeed, so Spotify won't normalize anymore, I guess if you have premium account, Bandcamp also never did. Does it make sense still to master at -14 LUFS integrated as recommended for streaming platforms? My mastering engineer ,which is more of a mixing engineer actually, told me that the master version he did at -14 LUFS integrated in terms of quality sounds much better of that done at -10/-8 LUFS integrated. Is this possible?? The more you raise the volume (meaning pushing the track more against the limiter in the master) the more sounds shitty? I cannot hear the difference honestly but if I compare the master he did with some reference tracks, it's much lower in volume. https://newsroom.spotify.com/2021-02-22/five-things-to-know-about-spotify-hifi/
  17. Hi Guys, I want to use my guitar pedals instead of plugins in cakewalk, I will still use the guitar amp sim, but I want to use my delay pedal. I will have to buy a re-amp box and also, Since I only have a steinberg UR12 interface with one single input, I'm thinking to get a focusrite with two inputs, but I just have one doubt: the interface needs to have 2 outputs as well ? There are these 2 versions, which one should I get??
  18. ok so from my understanding if you recorded at 16 bitrate and you export at 32 bitrate doesn't really matter, but if it's the opposite you should dither otherwise gets lossy correct?
  19. Bloody hell some tracks were recorded at 16 and some at 32, what should I do? I export it in WAV at 32 anyway?
