Ok…so I’m in the studio working on an upcoming CD with my band the Inside Drivers. All is going well and we’re tracking along with good results. After the session I asked the studio owner/engineer (who is also our drummer) Steve Kelly if he had the program I heard of called “Amplitube”. It just so happened that he did have it and after the session I wanted to give it a whirl just to see how it would stack up to a real tube amp being mic’d.
Well….much to my surprise the program sounded and felt great..!! I was shocked because the digital guitar amp “modelers” and software I tried in the past just didn’t sound very good and had zero feel. Amplitube was a totally different animal and made the recording process much easier, faster and there were tons of amp and effect choices. The program also gives you a lot of control over each amp model, cabinet, room, mic placement so you can easily customize your sound. I was pleasantly surprised and decided to complete the CD of our Inside Drivers music using the Amplitube software. I consider myself somewhat of a tube amp purist but Amplitube really works and my tracks are sounding great. I will keep you all updated as the CD nears completion. Amplitube…..go figure..!!!
