Guitar DIs processing tricks

Трюки с DI

Greetings to dear readers!
Wanted to tell you a couple of tricks of DIs processing (for hi-gain guitar parts primarily, but not only) before reamping them, which I have to use in my practice time to time during the years. Some of us will find them well known, while another will learn something new. These techniques helps in solving several types of common problems:

  • Make muddy and dark guitars brighter.
  • Add some metal clang to the tone.
  • Treat a weak uneven picking.

First of all, you’d better always record accurately and make quality (use good guitar with fresh strings, experienced musician with a good performance technique etc.), then fixing all the issues afterwards. But this is not always possible, so the following tricks may appear useful.

Reamping role


This is a note about electric instruments reamping. I’ll try to keep it simple, considering mostly creative and practical side of this process, instead of technical.

Reamping – is a possibility to pass a recorded guitar (bass or whatever electric instrument you’d like) part through some analog amplification/processing stack, starting from stomps and preamplifier and to picking up with a microphone(-s) from a cabinet. You’re able to reamp any kind of signal (e.g., let it be the vox) in case it corresponds to the general creative idea of the composition.
