Januar 2014: Some easy home recordings

Setup: Stratocaster, Dunlop CarbonCopy Delay and JTM45 clone with PPIMV and 4x12 Cabinet at nearly bedroom level. Amp not visible on the video, its behind the cabinet with PC cabeling, DI box etc. The audio track is a mix of 20% iPhone original from the video and 80 % re-amped track added later (you can still hear the switching from the iPhone mic record). For re-amping the JTM45 output has been recorded with a simple DI-Box into a Laptop. A speaker simulation had been added later to cut the high frequencies of this DI track.

The GR-Junior has been developed further! Model II is available now. It takes all approved functions of the GR-Junior. The new design offers a robust Hammond diecast zink enclosure like the GR-1. Response time and sensity could be improved further. Model II replaces the old one by now.

Equipment: The Strat output has been splitted into a small guitar amp and a USB soundcard for PC recording of the dry guitar signal. The guitar amp has only been used for monitoring at a very low sound volume. Normally unable to create feedback (which is perhaps typically for home recording options).

Video: with iPhone 3, original sound track from the iphone microphone has been replaced later by a virtual re-amped track (using the dry guitar signal into AmplitTube VST plugin in Audacity).

Its a quick and easy demo without any mastering (no noise reduction, no compressor etc. have been used).

The target was to create a realistic raw sound of a turned up guitar amp with its dynamics, frequency response AND feedback. That is the reason why we more focused on low distortion sounds.
