What is reamping?Reamping is the process of playing a guitar's clean, raw recorded sound back through a physical guitar amplifier and recording the tone from the amplifier. For a natural guitar tone when reamping, a clean, raw DI guitar track must have been recorded to begin with.
You may wish to reamp your guitar tone if:
- You are unsatisfied with the tone you have recorded from your own amp
- You want the tone from an amp you don't have access to
- You are unsatisfied with the results from software amp modellers
Prices from only £5 per guitar track!
Which amp should I choose for my perfect tone?
Davis Amplification 2C8
The Davis Amplification 2C8 is an all valve, EL34 driven 8 watt head that’s perfect for recording great guitar tone. Get that tone on your songs with my online reamping service!
Don’t be fooled by its small size, there’s a lot of amp here! It effortlessly covers a massive range of tones, from jazzy clean, bluesy crunch, all the way to huge, thick rock overdrive.
It’s also a perfect platform for pedals. The dual control effects loop is especially useful in crafting some fantastic and unique tones – I particularly like dialling back the ‘dry’ mix blending in plenty of my Strymon reverb and delays on the ‘wet’ mix and micing the amp in stereo to create wide, ambient textures.
Check out my demo videos of this amp to see just how versatile it is! No effects were used in the front of the amp, just reverb in the effects loop. All overdrive was achieved by using the the amp controls only.
MJW Electra Custom
This unique MJW is a very special amp indeed – Based on a Mesa/Boogie MK1, it can provide everything from hyper-clean, rich Fender-esque tones all the way to Santana-style saturation.
Its highly responsive EQ section provides access to a huge range of tones. I’m particularly fond of this amp for rich, chiming, super clean tones.
How to prepare and send your files for reamping
- Please extend/consolidate all guitar tracks to the very beginning of the session.
- Remove any effects or amp modellers. The guitar tracks you send must be completely clean, dry DI signals.
- Export guitar tracks separately all as 24bit 44.1kHz WAV files
Please also include a bounce of all other instruments together as a stereo WAV backing track. This will help me capture the perfect tones for your song.
Please upload all your guitar tracks & song backing track via WeTransfer or Dropbox. Please then copy and paste the download link and email to email@example.com.
In your completed reamping package, you will receive the following for each guitar part:
- At least 2x close microphone options
- Applicable room microphones for your desired sound
The finished, raw audio will be delivered via WeTransfer to your email address as 24 bit, 44.1khz lossless WAV files.
I usually spend 3/4 to a full day on reamping per song in order to achieve the perfect tone for your song. Depending on the complexity of the song, less or more time may be needed.
In all cases, I will finish all requested reamping by an agreed deadline.
Once I receive your order with your requested deadline, I will assess whether the amount of work is feasible in that time. I will then send either a confirmation of that deadline to you or get in touch to arrange a feasible deadline.
You will receive an email once I begin the reamping for your order. Depending on my current workload, you will usually receive the finished files 1-2 days after receiving this email.
