I'll be working on my "studio tan" the week after Thanksgiving when my band records its 2nd album. We're recording for a label this time.<br /> <br /> The engineer wants me to try using the rack version of the Tech 21 Sansamp to track my guitar parts.<br /> <br /> Q: Could I dial in a clean amp setting on the Sansamp and then use my pedalboard for any dirt and delay? (I used to own the original Sansamp pedal, but that was years ago and I never used it in this fashion.)

Years ago I used the rack version of the Sans Amp (PSA1?) for both recording and live purposes. You should have no problem using pedals on a clean setting. It may take a bit longer, depending on how picky you are, but they are great units. Cheers.

Congratulations. <br /> I think you'll do just fine with a pedalboard in front of the sans amp. <br />

I'm betting the engineer is also looking to track a dry signal to Re-amp if necessary. Effects on the front end could be possible as long as the engineer can still track a dry signal. I would start by ask him so there are no surprises.

+1 littleuch<br /> <br /> Definitely split the signal and record a dry safety.

A couple of the songs are rockabilly style. I'd like to use slapback delay while tracking.<br /> <br /> He did say that re-amping was an option so he'll probably track a dry signal too.<br /> <br /> Malcom - Was the first album a success? I wish!

UPATE: I'm using plug-in software for all my guitar tracks. I forget the manufacturer, but it's super flexible and sounds great.<br /> <br /> The engineer said he prefers this software to the Line 6 Amp Farm or whatever it's called.

tracking with software is the way to go anymore. So many options to tweak the sound post tracking.

The plug-in software is made by Waves. Super good sounding stuff! I'm definitely a fan.

Yeah, you pretty much have the option of any amp you want.
