View Single Page

Thanks to B&H, SonicScoop editor Justin Colletti has a new 3-part series coming out this month, and it’s all about recording guitars without the amp.

Check out part 1 of this series, as Justin joins Vlad Holiday of the band Born Cages to take a quick tour of three of the most popular amp simulator plugins on the market and share their impressions on each.

Check out parts 2 on direct recording & reamping, and stay tuned for part 3 on alternatives to conventional amps for practice and tracking.
