The company Recabinet (www.recabinet.com) has a fall sale until October 31 with 80% off at their software Recabinet (which is a cabinet/microphone simulator for computers, eg. You just line out Your amp to the DAW and then use this software instead of miking the speaker.....) I haven't tried it yet, but according to the manufactorer guitarists like Steve Stevens (Billy Idol, Michael Jackson), Vernon Reid (Living Colour), Mike Spreitzer (Devildriver), and Ahrue Luster (Ill Niño, Machine Head) uses it.... (a review is coming up) And its cheap, just 14.99$. Compared to what a good microphone costs so..... but as I said, haven't tested it yet. Btw. dont miss the sound samples.... smile.gif

That's pretty cool. I will speak more of it later but I have been using Recabinet Complete 2.0 for a while now and have been more than happy with the results. I recommend anyone reading this forum topic to jump on this opportunity to get it at a dirt cheap price.

I wasn't aware that Vernon (maybe my all-time favourite guitarist) was using it ... that just sold me on it if I hadn't already been!!! tongue.gif

what do you plug the line out of your amp into? BTW the software sounds awesome.


You just plug it in the soundcard of the computer/DAW......

Yeah, I think it works well, it is also used in the Studio Devil software, which I made a review for in the WIKI. There is a brief explanation about what technique they are using emulating in this kind of software. But as I said, this is definetely worth an own review!

But is that software really usefull when using a POD or another software like Guitar Rig ?
There are cab settings in both of them already. Even though on the POD 2, there are probably not so many possibilities ?


EDIT: BTW, when they give software at that price it's probably because the v3.0 is coming... wink.gif

wont it blow up my sound card cause i have a 60 watt tube amp?


You should use the LINE-OUT, not the speaker out. The line-out delivers a line-level signal that is perfectly suited for the soundcard.

About POD I really dont know... but I guess if its possible to turn off the speaker emulation in the POD and use this instead..... otherwise I cannot see any point in this.

For guitar rig I think it's very useful, since the new version (GR4) imports impulses from the Recabinet, so does also Peavey Revalver and Studio Devil.

But the best would be to use it with a real amp, I guess.

I initially tried using Recabinet with Studio Devil Amp Modeler Pro (AMP) as you have done but in the end I ditched it (that is to say AMP) as I tended to have to turn almost everything off i.e. preamp, poweramp sections and effects. Also too, it had the unfortunate habit of resetting things when I didn't care for it to as I auditioned presets. A lot of the inbuilt functionality (which is great if you are looking for one plugin to do it all) was rather wasted on me as I was looking to use it with a guitar preamp and outboard effects so those duties were already taken care of. A small but important factor in useability for me was that I found browsing through the Recabinet folders within AMP rather convoluted. It didn't make the process of searching out sounds transparent enough for my liking. That being said, I still found it to be a lot better sounding than a lot of the competition. So now I just load the impulses from the Recabinet library directly within SIR2 (the Recabinet website lists a whole bunch of compatible plugins for this purpose) and handle all the other details separately. This simplification allowed me better flexibility.

It all depends on your setup. I don't like the idea of preamp/poweramp/cabinet/mic modeling in general as I had always been rather underwhelmed with the sound and just as importantly the feel and response to what you play but Recabinet has been for me the exception.

After quite the huge dose of experimentation I have arrived at this configuration:

I use the recording outs from the Triaxis preamp (that is where I draw the line - you can't model that) -> some cleanup of the signal with onboard DSP courtesy of my sound card/audio interface (DC Filter/Low Cut Filter/Noise Gate) -> route to DAW -> process L+R seperately with Recabinet impulse loaded via SIR2 (I currently like Recabinet Vintage Green 4x12 - 6L6 Edge 1" on Left Channel & EL34 Edge 45 1" on Right Channel) -> route via SPDIF to the G-Major for some time-based effects (Chorus/Delay/Reverb) -> sum the mix with onboard DSP -> route it back into the DAW for recording.

A bit of a process but it allows me to leverage all my onboard and outboard gear without the added hassle of miking up the 4x12 cabinet fed by the poweramp. Given I live in a small apartment now I could never hope to crank the thing like it deserves to get some of the tone that lies there dormant. I am used to playing live but I have been pleasantly surprised at the results this pseudo-direct recording setup has provided courtesy of Recabinet. You have the flexibility of making a vast array of selections to help sculpt your sound with choice of a large number of mics, different mic placements, cabinets and even power tube sections. I am able to get a reasonable approximation to a real cranked tube amp without using the one I already have. I can tell the difference. Until now, I have not been able to accomplish this.


Excuse the rant and rave but I have been working pretty hard on this over the last month or so to get me in the ballpark of tone without even once having to flip the standby switch on the 30kg beast of a Marshall poweramp that now just sits idly by in the corner ... tongue.gif

Oh, my peavey 5150 combo doesnt have a a line out, you know of a way i can convert speaker output to line level?


Then You must use a thing such as a hot-plate I think, but they are pretty expensive, since You are substituting the speaker load.....

Power attenuation and the possibility for a line out to boot produces its own share of pitfalls but this site gives some of the skinny on that. Not surprising since they just happen to make some damn fine competition for the Hot-Plate .... biggrin.gif

Sorry, I am some kind of a noob with all that stuff. So it's not a VST or something ? It's an application who act directly on the line in on the computer ? Or something like that ? smile.gif

I just bought mine and am downloading it now. I liked what I read on their website and for the price it seemed like it was worth checking out. It says that it will improve your sound even if you are running it through an effects unit like a pod or like my GNX4. I also have a JDS Direct box that will give me a clean line out signal that I run into my Apogee Ensemble and then use effects in my DAW. So I figure I have several options to try it with. Should be interesting.

Essentially, it is an impulse response library i.e. just a bunch of wave files. Albeit, one that is commercially pre-packaged for there are plenty to be found for free all over the internet. The difference for me is that it contains a nice well-chosen selection that affords a vast range of possibilities. You will need another plugin (VST or equivalent) or stand-alone program to load the impulse response file itself. The companies' website lists a number of compatible plugins/programs for this purpose.

The library was produced with a nice clean poweramp with switchable powertubes and depending on the cabinet a few or quite a few mic choices and each at different placements. So you have enough flexibility to craft the sound you are looking for. I particularly like how one can easily run a stereo cab configuration by loading a different impulse on each channel.

So yeah. Nothing really earth-shattering so much in the modeling world but I just believe it was just really well done.

I cant find no competition on their site, I just love competitions... smile.gif
Where did You find it ???

By the way, Weber stuff is top-notch, Im planning to get some of their speakers for my Fender, they sound a lot more warm and cracks up nicer than the eminences.....

I heard it said that there are quite a few ex-Hot-Plate users who are now the proud owner of a Weber! wink.gif I understand they even do a lot of their work by hand which tells me they really love what they do. Yeah. I wouldn't mind dabbling with some of those speakers myself one day ... biggrin.gif

I will let you know how it works out. I have been getting pretty deep into the whole recording process and I am looking for more options do get a good guitar sound. I am on the weber site right now and I am probably going to order their Mini Mass today. I have been wanting to get an attenuator for my amp so I can really drive the tubes.... I was telling my friend the other day that I could have a pretty nice hot rod sitting out in the driveway for all the money I spend on this little hobby of mine smile.gif

I am jealous. smile.gif I have been itching to buy the Haze15 that Marshall is making. It really sounds good on their website. The guy really puts it through its paces. But then again I am really wanting the new Mesa Boogie Mark V. That is in a whole different price range. But man it is an awesome amp!

As you may have already sussed out by now, getting a great guitar sound on tape is one of the most notoriously hard things to achieve. Generally, the only real tried-and-true method was to crank the amp and mic it but that hasn't stopped anyone from trying an alternate path. Success has been varied and I guess the results are slowly accruing.

I know exactly what you mean. I sometimes forget how much gear I have accumulated over the years. A lot is in storage but I have been making a concerted effort since joining up here to put the most essential items in some semblence of working order so that I can easily chop and change as the need or inspiration arises.

The Weber is a great choice. I just "happened" to have that link at hand cause I have been toying with the idea of getting one myself one day so that I can do some cranking at home. Although, I am surprised I can get a half-decent sound even at low volume levels ... I have not done a test to see how it transfers in a recording but my guess is that it wouldn't.

Yes getting that thick rich sound on tape is the main problem. My recent purchases in that quest have been the Apogee Ensemble and a JDI Direct box. I also purchase a Sennheiser 609 mic. I was just thinking of a new way to try and improve my sound. I was going to use my 609 mic in combination with a couple of overhead mic's and my Audio Technica 2050 mic that I use for vocals. I am going to try and place them at various points around the amp and give them all their own track in logic and record that way and then blend the signals and see what happens.... I can mute each track and try them in different combinations etc. Plus I can try the Recabinet also. I just remembered that this thread was originally about the Recabinet. I got off on a tangent talking about recording gear and amps. smile.gif

Not really off-topic at all as the question (a good one at that) was asked as to the benefit of using Recabinet. It all relates to getting a good sound that endeavours to capture some of that miced cab gooey goodness.
