    Short question, the guy reamping the tracks is complaining the lack of bottom and high ends after reamp. Is there any certain issues to take care of when running the signal into amp, how should the settings be etc? I'm not that familiar with reamping and he's no specialist for reamping either, but thinks the overall sound is always worse than when playing the guitars directly through the amp, but why? He's using Radial JD7, so that shouldn't be the problem either?

    I'm looking to get a re-amp box, is the Radial X-Amp a safe bet? I'm using an M-Audio Fast Track Pro right now, is this how it would work:

    Fast Track Pro -> XLR on X-Amp -> Amp
    and then the mic on the cab would go into the other input on the FT Pro
    ?

    still a bit clueless on how re-amping is set up

    hi guys, i was about to shop for cheap radial or countryman DIs, but I notice someone mentioned Edirol soundcard. What I have currently is a roland octacapture with VS Preamps , a higher-end brother of edirol, and the reviews said it is very clean and neutral. do you guys think I still need those dedicated DIs ?


    ---edit---

    as I understand it, guitar/bass > radial or redeye DI > soundcard's mic preamp > DAW

    wouldn't the mic preamp already add coloration to the DI's signal ? So why bother ? Would it be better to use my GSP1101 bypass mode than record straight to the DAW via USB ?
