reamping guitars in Kuala Lumpur.

March 16th, 2012 | 7 Comments   « Previous  |  Episode 38  |  Next »

I was back in Kuala Lumpur to track vocals and electric guitars in with the great Malaysian band Tempered Mental. After a lot of interest on my Facebook Page about some reamping we did, I made this video walk through the steps we used to re-amp some of the guitars on this record .

By the way, there is some big news over at Recording Boot Camp. I have added a 3 new instructors and 8 new courses.

    Thanks bro, this is just what I needed to clarify for my project… so if I get it right the procedure is: record what you can get for now, but simultaneously record a direct signal on another track by using a DI to split the signal. Later if I get access to some cool guitar amps this DI track can be used to improve the project by reamping, merci Ronan!

    Yes Denis, That is correct. Make sure the direct track does not have any kind of amp modeling or anything like that on it.

    I LOVE that bass sound in the clip! The snare and guitars are rockin’, too.

    Right on Ronan! More great tips, thank you.

    Also good to know there are boxes out there to help you re-amp properly.

    How was KL? Quite a place isn’t it.

    Those noodles were making my mouth water on the outro :P

    Cool video, as always! Could you elaborate a little on what it was about the 6505 that you did not like? I was under the impression that Peavey just renamed the 5150 after they parted ways with EVH. I was actually looking into getting one for my studio sometime in the not-too-distant future since the 5150 is so highly regarded among metal guys, but not often found here in South Africa.

    Jo, you might be right. I do not own either amp, but I have used the 5150 a bunch on sessions with good results, and was not seeming to get similar results from the 6505. It always seemed pinched and sort of transister-y sounding to me. We got better sounds from the Triple rectifier and Ceriatone almost every time.
