I have recently been experimenting with reamping, using an Egnater TOL-50 as my amp. I successfully recorded my DI track in Cubase, but my problem appears to be that during the reamping process my amp isn’t receiving enough signal to get a satisfactory rhythm tone. it just sounds very “spongy” and lacks any punch. My current setup functions, just not as it should.
Here’s what I’m using:
Radial PRO DI
Focusrite Saffire USB
I had to do one work-around to get it working, and that was using a cable that had TRS on one end and XLR on the other. I chose TRS because the Saffire manual says that TRS is the way to get a balanced line-level signal. I have a feeling that the culprit may be the cable. Could I use a “tip-sleeve to XLR” cable instead? My interpretation of the X-Amp manual was that the input required a “balanced” signal.
One thing that I notice is that I can set the DI’d track’s volume to “6”, as well as max the output of the X-Amp and I STILL can’t get it to clip.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
