I posted a similar topic in the pro audio gear section with no responses and thought it would be more relevant here. I am currently using my Avalon U5 to record my archtop direct along with miking the guitar's acoustic sound. I am happy with the results although would like to mix in my mic'd up Polytone too. I am thinking about re-amping as I can spend more time with microphone placement after the event. I am also thinking about possibly changing my amp later in the year and could then use the new amp with existing recorded parts. I am looking at the Radial X-amp and read that people are having great results with this and similar products. I was just wondering how the re-amped track would compare to my archtop plugged direct into my amp. As I am after a very pure sound, I am concerned that after going Archtop>U5>Firepod>Logic>Firepod>X-amp>Polytone that the signal must be altered quite a bit. Any experience/thoughts/advice would be greatly appreciated as I cannot find any re-amped archtop topics on the web. Cheers!
