Hey there,

I have been using a free reverb for quite a while - called SIR:

http://www.knufinke.de/sir/sir1.html

It uses "impulse responses" which are basically samples from famous reverbs. The soun quality beats any plugin I have so far. To get this working with your recording software you need to click the link and download the software.

You then need to download some Impulse Responses:

You might want to pick some Lexicon, Aleseis or Yamaha Impulse Responses... wink.gif

For those of you who aren't very use to recording be sure to only use barely audible reverb, a common beginner mistake is to drown the whole mix in reverb.

PS This is of course legal.

Great tip!

I suggest we make a recording sticky with freeware. Like this SIR and Reaper.

Had to try it out and it sounded real good! Not really like the JCM800 is claimed but rather more vintage IMHO. I just had to put the Ibanez down and hook up my LP for the right sound. Very sweet!
I tried to make a recording but couldn't get that to function (when the window lost focus the sound stopped).

Definitly worth a try for anyone with ASIO drivers a soundcard that plugs a guitar in.
