After buying a Palmer PDI-03, I've used a cab very little. I'm the type of annoying guy who will do anything for an extra bit of tone, and I have the mics and cabs available, but I haven't felt the need to use them.Anybody use Red Boxes or cabinet simulators when tracking guitars.
It shouldn't be hard for you to write that since the $35 Behringer DI sounded better than the Palmer-09 unit I owned, iso cabs I've owned, etc... it is the best bang for the buck I've ever purchased. For DI cabinet simulation, is as good anything in the lower price range. I'm guessing the high end Palmers might have the edge, but for under $300 or $400, it's the way to go, plus you get a DI that sounds better than the Countryman DI I use to own.Believe it or not, and it's hard for me to even type this, but Behringer makes a DI with active cabinet simulation, that I've heard really good things about.
Two Hot Plates will get you there. Tons of 'em on e-bay usually if you don't want to buy new.I need a stereo load-box (or a couple of seperate boxes) with line outs to do some silent recordings using NI Guitar Rig's cab simulators...can anyone point me at something that will fit the bill? At this time I'd rather not pony up $1200 for two of the palmer units.
I listened to the two clips. The Behringer sounds similar to the miked version, but doesn't grab the guts of the sound. It's also not as close to an "emulation" of a cabinet as what a Palmer 09 will give you. It is good for $40.Check out this thread for some Behringer Ultra-G comparison clips.
