Has anybody experience in this issue?
Differences in sounding, reliability, ec.ec.
I use the X-Amp, so I can't actually compare the two. I am totally happy with it though and use it all the time. Perfect sound, noise free. Sounds just like plugging in the guitar as long as you get a clean DI signal.
I also use the xamp and it always gives me great results, i haven´t tried the reamp, but i would think that the di box is the most important factor.Andy and James both uses the reamp so i would say that if it is good enough for them it will probably also be good enough for you.you should also consider the multi z pip or the red eye from little labs.
anyone have links to these products? i've been meaning to check them out myself
The reamp shoots out at -18dB I think; is it the same with Xamp?
so basically i could run a cable from my soundcard out, into the reamp...and then from the reamp into my amp?
would it matter what level i recorded the initial dry guitar track at?
damn, I didnt even know about reamp boxes... I just run a cable from my soundcard into my amp. (Sometimes with a preamp in between). Works great. It´s important to have good signal though..
I use the reamp and it works great. No issues with reliability, one knob to adjust and it just works. Does exactly what it says it does...
IIRC James uses the Radial JD-7 Injector...could be wrong though.
Yes and no; you could always boost the level of the recorded track and/or adjust the output of the X-Amp; this will also boost any noise on the track, but as long as it wasn't recorded at way too low a level, it should be fine. The best thing to do is to compare what your guitar sounds like vs. what the reamp box sounds like through the amp and try to match them as closely as possible. I use a Radial DI box and the X-amp, and without messing with any levels, the X-Amp output sounds no different from my guitar's DI signal(rather, it did after I figured out my sequencer's whole "Panning Law" thing and why I was getting 3dB less output... d'oh).
I second that Rajorjack...I remember that post...
..and I actually purchased a radial product for reamping...does an amazing job (sounds just like plugging into my amp...)
However, it's the only product I've used so I can't compare it to anything else..
i suppose the most logical thing to do would be to make note of where my guitar's dry signal sits on my board's dB meter...then check the signal coming form the reamp box, and adjust it to match as closely as possible?
i know a slight turn of the volume knob, can make a pretty big difference...that's the main problem i'm concerned with running into
Does anyone know any European webstores that sell X-Amp?
this may help:
Hey frank have you checked this http://www.littlelabs.com/redeye.html ?
it's 275 Euros from here (X-amp is 182 Euros here in italy)
It's expensive, but it's passive (no need for a power supply) and it's a DI box too.
Very clear signal, no distortion when going direct!!!
If you can solder a bit this is also nice.
Thank you all lads. It was only a A-B test question. I already own a REAMP box. But thanks for the replies.
@Mulder: Thanks for the Jensen link.
i use the JD7 for it's amp splitting funtionality only.. i still use my Cunibertti Reamp for all reamping.. i actually use the two together so i can switch between amps while reamping, quickly and effectively. see the pic below for a look at the reamping set-up i'm running on my current session:
James, I'll trade you my 5150 for all of those heads. One time offer.
