I have a man-crush on Tchad Blake and his work with the Black Keys. I love everything from the vocals to the drums! He likes to add an analog feel to everything via a plug-in (Decapitator) or Sans Amp. This got me thinking about using digital modelling live (and when recording at home). For those of you going direct, do you add analog to your chain to warm things up? I have a POD HD500 and really bought it wanting to use a lot of the 2.0 update - I want the bass amp and mic pre! Is the lack of analog even noticeable live??? Do you find that inserting analog warmth (via pedal, amp, pre, etc) helps your sound or just becomes too much? Thanks!
