Not sure at all if I'm in the right place for this post. I'm looking for guitar amp effects for audio tracks in Ableton Live intro. I have Logic Pro X and it has a pretty extensive array of amps and cabinets for guitar but I like using Ableton live now. Guitar rig?
1.Im looking into buying a tube amp for home practice and maybe some recording in my apartment.
Many new amps comes with speaker emulated output for recording purpose.
So when using this output will the amp speaker itself be silenced? (So that i can crank up the volume, for recording purpose, without waking the neighbours)
2. In short, what i want is a low wattage amp (combo or head) that a) can be used at home for recording purpose without the need for a speaker connected and b) for practice purpose at low volume with a speaker connected.
A friend of mine made some great video demos of 4 vintage guitar amps from the 50's/60's. Recorded in the studio with front and back mics, a hint of compression and light reverb. Details in the article.

What do you think? What's your favorite?
The Silvertone is pretty cool I reckon!
Currently using garageband and a bit underwhelmed by the guitar amp simulators. Im not in an environment where I can mic an amp up so need to find something good.

Looking for a mic with a bump around 1-3k. Looking to "emulate" the pop of a V30 on certains amps that are not so equipped.
Hi, just wondering what difference it makes where and when levels are turned up and down int he recording chain. Is it best to turn a guitar amp up a ton, and then turn the track down in my DAW, or to have the amp lower, and turn the volume up more in the DAW. And for Micing vocals, is it best to turn the microphone preamp way up, and then the track level down in the DAW, or vice versa? Does it actually make a difference?
A few days ago I heard a engineer saying that the best way to record the guitar amp is putting the cabinet (speaker) up something like a rack, chair, etc.
Is it really true?
Is there some acoustic problem on this?
Thanks everyone, and sorry for my english.
my band and I have decided that we're going to record a few of our own songs to have something to put up on youtube, myspace etc. Since we don't have the hardware or cash for a proper studio, we decided to create a poor-mans studio using my digital bass-pedal (which acts as a soundcard when connected to a computer). The idea was to hook it up like this:
Instrument -> Amp -> (Headphones Out) -> Pedal (Bypass mode) -> Split to the PA we use for voice (and feed the guitar through monitors since amp is mute), and to the computer.
Hey guys. I've been getting a crackly hum from my guitar amp. When I start adding compression to the mix the noise shoots through the roof. I've been told that I need to use a power conditioner instead of plugging the amp straight into the wall. Is this correct?
