What are the best libraries to increase gain for guitar ?

Postby jimiyves » Wed Aug 14, 2013 10:52 am

Hi,


I would like to add gain before amp sims modelling.

When I played on analog gear I had a clean booster.

What library can do that ?


Thanks.

When you say 'gain' I am assuming you want some kind of overdrive/distortion, or at least to boost the signal so the loudest parts are compressed/clipped? I don't recommend Nebula for that. I would use a hardware guitar pedal for gain direct into your sound card DI and Nebula for the cabinet sim.

Just type 'cabinet' into the search here to see what is available, quite a few free ones to check out:

Hope that is of help, maybe i didn't quite understand what you were looking for.

I would like to only boost my signal.

I prefer use a VST plugin, because I use others effects between the guitar and the boost.

My signal would be :

Guitar - DI - Converter - wah plugin - compressor plugin - (pitch plugin ) - boost plugin - amp plugin - cab plugin

And I would like to modify the boost only with presets, not manually.

Best thing when you record is to add the MXR Micro amp pédal between your gtr and your DI

Otherwise as plugin I recommend the BoostEq pédal-plugin from Line6
Or, try the éq ADQ from CDSM, add 3db at 8khz and it's magic !!

I hope it could help
