The Digital Domain - Amp Sims, Cab Sims, IR's, Emulators
The forgotten Overdrive Pedal in IK Multimedia Amplitube.Probably because there are so many amazing choices in amplitube. But give this pedal a shot, you will be surprised how well it can be applied. The often overlooked and very interesting sounding overdrive pedal in the Amplitube 4 and 5 arsenal. The diode overdrive.
Amp sims and guitar dynamics - Do amp sims respond to guitar volume / tone controls like real amps?
The question came up on Facebook... do amp sims have dynamics and most folk answered the question with a no. I disagree and made this video to prove that with the right gain staging and if your gear is setup right, the dynamics are very convincing on a vst.
Does it FUZZ? - Does Amplitube DOOM/METAL/CHUG
Does Amplitube Doom, Metal, Chug or sound like... These are quick videos attempting sounds quickly. No, additional EQ, reverbs or extra tweaking but rather recording directly as the tweaking happens. In this episode we try to achieve a brutal FUZZ sound with the Fender amp in Amplitube and BigPig Fuzz Pedal.
A sound and audio demo of the ZOOM G1on and G1Xon. This video illustrates its amp modelling quality or amp simulation.
The ZOOM g1Xon is in my arsenal and I thought it is worth promoting because it is cheap but really useful and sounds amazing. I blend my analogue and digital (zoom g1xon) signals at the end of my chain before it goes into the amp. Some of the amp sims are very useful and it has nearly all the effects required.
More Geek stuff, the PedalShield. Another programmable guitar pedal built around an existing PCB cleverly used to make a programmable and adaptive effects pedals.
The OWL (Open Ware Laboratory) is an open source, programmable effects pedal made for guitarists, musicians, hackers and programmers alike. Users can program their own effects in C++, or download ready-made patches from our growing online patch library.
I love opensource prjects. Now they are rearing their head in fileds not expected. Like this one; a programmable digital effects pedal with workbench.
