I've always had problems recording a miced guitar amp. The tone is thin and metallic sounding, no sustain, brittle, or muddy. I've tried playing with mic placement, dialing up my amp and software, and all sorts of other tweaks, but have never been happy. When I've asked about it on several forums, the response is generally that I should be able to just find a sweet spot with the mic and the recorded track should sound exactly like what I hear in the room. Nonsense. I just got Logic Pro deliverd this week and started playing with the "Guitar Amp Pro" plugin. While directly driving this modeller with a guitar doesn't sound too good for what I want (CLEAN, SUSTAINED, Kimock like tones), I've gotten it to work really well with a miced amp. Just running the miced signal through the "clean tube preamp" setting, picking a cab emulation, and playing with the gain and EQ for a few minutes has finally done it. I am finally recording tracks that sound damn near identical to what I hear in the room. The nice thing is, you can change the software settings during playback to tweak the tone, add a little more/change the verb, or do what you will. It works. I suspect the NI Guitar Rig software (stand alone) will be usefull for this as well if you don't want to drop the money for Logic. Is anyone else doing anything similar to this to solve problems in getting a good recorded clean tone?
