I just read one of the late Alvin Lees last interviews..During the interview he mentioned amongst other interesting guitar stuff, that he used Amplitube and guitar rig whilst making his latest album.....also tells how he was caught trying to under declare the value of his newly purchased Martin guitar in New York 1970.....I thought it was worth sharing here as a lot of people use those VST/programs.

Very interesting find! I think the guitar amp modeling software and devices like Axe FX are the future of recording. Probably there are lots of famous or less famous musicians that used such approach to record some guitar tracks for their albums. Its just very easy and saves time + its flexible. Of course, I'm not saying that such recordings can replace the real thing 1 on 1, but it all depends on what kind of sound is needed and when recording tracks for albums - its all personal and to the artist taste (everything can work - just a matter of imagination! smile.gif ).

I agree smile.gif Technology really is the future of recording at the Pro and home level if for no other reason than efficiency and cost. It's possible to get ones "sound" down to a patch for a rack unit, or plugin and save tons of studio time / money, by recording dry guitars (monitoring WITH FX of course) and skip time/expense of tracking the old way.


Don't get me wrong, I'm all Nostalgic for a BIG STUDIO and BIG ROOM with NICE MICS and HUGE CONSOLE, but honestly, it's really not as needed as it once was. It's still much "Cooler" though for big acts not to admit using too much software smile.gif
