Is there a tube based direct recording device? Something like a pod, but with real tubes?
this works well.
Hi all. Just signed up, and this is my first post.
I whole heartedly recommend the Vox ToneLab. Sort of like a POD, but has a tube, and gives you the feel of a real amp, plus tone galore.
OMG! I'm buying one of these now!!! Thanks dude!!!!!!!!!
The ToneLab? Or the other one?
I'm getting the Damage Control Womanizer.... sounds amazing on their site!
I've been using a Womanizer as my primary tone generator for direct recording for about eight months now and love it. For the kind of stuff I play -- blues and blues rock -- about 90% of what it can do is usable, and I can't say that about my PodXT. The tone is very natural, the overdrive is very amp like and never fizzy, the built-in e.q quite useful, and the built-in opto-compression indispensible. Does great clean, fabulous mild to heavy overdrive. And it's built like a tank. You can even run an acoustic through it to warm up that piezo sound. Only drawback is you can't save presets, and its tough to see the Tele knob setting on the floor -- but as a desk top home recording unit its great. If you're into gainier sounds and more distortion, you might want to investigate the Demonizer from the same guys.
There are lots of examples of this thing in use from this humble duffer on my Soundclick site. My tendency is to not use the heavier end of its o.d. capability much, but you'll get a sense of it's versatility. Even if I don't say what I used, it was probably the Womanizer:
That looks impressive. What's one of them go for?
it goes for really big sounding stereo mixes.
NOTHING like 1" 2 track.
Mesa has the V-Twin preamp as well.
