    The reamp trade sounds like a good idea. I've been charging to reamp only for the past year now already. Bands bring me their sessions, and want just their guitars reamped, because the other studio dropped the ball on getting good guitar tones. We charge like $80 a song, no matter how many guitar tracks there are. All we have to do is import the session, setup the patch bay, and press record....come back after like 20-30 minutes (or however long the session is completely) and then hit stop...edit the in between areas, do some eq, and presto! all done.

    I think the reamping trade is a really cool idea. I have a PowerBall, Dual Recto 3ch., Mesa MarkIV, JCM800 2203, JCM2000 TSL, and a JTM45, Peavey 5150, and pretty soon a Peavey JSX. Cabs are: Mesa oversized 4x12 w/ v30's, 2 Marshall 1960 cabs, one with v30's, the other with T75s, one Marshall 2x12 w/ v30's....SM57, TLM103, MD421mkII, and e609. Count me in, when I have time, heh.

    I'm actually going to make impulses of all my cabs with all of my mics in several positions, so like, 3 pos. per mic, and I have 4 mics (that I personally own for mic'ing guitars), and 4-5 cabs...that way I can have a library of my cabs, and have them all just a mouse-click away :D

    Is there any sync-related potential issues here? Like if the guitar is tracked in DP then you reamp in PT, then back to DP for the final mix, will there be a timing issue there?

    Shouldn't be - I figure it's just trading Wav files back and forth.

    ' Would it be interesting to you guys, to have a service where you could send you DI guitar tracks, together with a ruff mix of the song and get back a re-amped track through a professional amp setup? If so, what would it be worth to you, per track?

    I am thinking, since I have a ton of different guitar amps, to offer a service like that. Could be done via FTP or CD snail mail.

    I thought of this idea a while back - amazing that Michael Wagener is thinking about offering this! :headbang:

    I wish I had more amps, then I would offer it too...

    here's a quick reamp using my 5150.

    I have several Impulses of my cabs and speaker combos. I've cycled thru several of them in this clip. Speakers include V30, Greenback and GS1275. Three different cabs V4, Cobra and Mesa 2x12.

    the signal chain is OD808 -> 5150 Ch 3 -> HotPlate Line Out -> IR

    5150 reamp

    the bottom is all over the place since I just cycled thru some IR's as it was playing, but it won't be an issue for any single reamp.

    the IRs are all using an i5 but I have several mics and IRs with (57 with and w/o xfrmr, i5, 421II, e609S,...) Seems I end up using the i5, 57 and 421 the most.

    I don't have a clue how much gain you want so I just dialed in a raw tone and set the 808 for a bit of buzz.

    Sounds killer, but what iritating sound behind it? I got that sound too while mixing some MKS's stuff.

    As soon as I hook my gear all up, I'll be able to reamp with a 3-ch dual rectifier with either of these following cabs

    A) 4x12 Road King (half closed-back) w/ 2 C90's on the right side (open-back) & 2 V30's on the left side (closed-back). The open back has helped get some really lively clean tones, though it doesn't do anything for the distortion.

    B) 4x12 Recto Standard w/ V30's.

    I'm going to be recording my band and would be interested if someone would like to do a trade. I'll be looking for any 5150, Krank or ENGL for layering purposes on the git tracks.

    sure... I'm guessing you mean real mic'd cabs

    another way is to track the line out so the user can treat that with Impulses... or both

    here's a zip file with some impulses. the impulse files are stereo. the first mic in the filename is the left mic and the second is the right mic. if you use a plugin like Voxengo's Impulses, you can use just the left side or both channels... for different tone options.

    Edit 2006aug15: Impulse Files

    Cabs:
    V4 4x12 V30x4
    Cobra 4x12 GBx4
    Mesa 2x12 gs1275 v30

    mics
    i5
    57
    57nx - no xfmr
    421II

    hopefully the file names are self-explanatory...

    when I get around to it I'll do my Carvin Legacy 2x12 Combo and some others and some other mics

    Another cool idea would be if someone records a clean "reference guitar track"
    so people can reamp it thru several amps! So you can easily compare different amps!
    And you could make a library of the sound
    of different amps! Also people can compare their rig (ampwise) to others!

    you can also make a (re)amp contest ;)
