I am in desperate need of some guidance on how to re-amp a dry signal through a reamp box and a Two Notes Torpedo Captor X using Cubase 11. I have been trying for two nights to get this to work and I don’t know what the block is, but I just can’t seem to get this to work. My sound card is the newest version of the Audient ID14.
Before I purchased my Audient ID14, I wrote to Two Notes to confirm that the interface would be sufficient to use with the Captor X and a Radial X Amp Reamp box for the purpose of reamping. Here were their responses:
Thank you for contacting the Two notes Helpdesk.
yes, you can use the radial Reamp to send the signal to your amp, and record in your DAW through the Captor X. The setup is as follow: - Amp speaker output connected to Captor X - XLR output(s) of Captor X connected to the inputs of the audio interface. - one of the output of the audio interface is connected to the Radial’s input. You should use an output that is not already connected to your monitors so that you do not have feedback loops. - the radial’s output goes to the amp’s input (the regular guitar input).
With this setup, you will be able to reamp your dry DI guitar sounds.
Yes, the Audient ID14 V2 is the best choice if you wish to reamp. this way you will be able to reamp easily without having to unplug your monitors when you wish to reamp,etc.
Ok, so I purchased the gear and I hooked it up the way they were suggesting. What I did not anticipate was how difficult this would be to route through Cubase.
I have watched a few different videos specifically how people route their signals through Cubase, and I for some reason cannot get this to work to save my life. I have the most basic template with a very simple DI guitar signal that I am trying to reamp, and I simply cannot get it to work. It certainly looks easy enough in the YouTube videos, but I somehow cannot get any re-amped/re-recorded audio signal with my guitar amp onto a separate track. If anyone can help me, I would truly be eternally grateful.
Wish I could help you but I record clean and reamp with software. Guitar to mixer, mixer to soundcard, soundcard to track in Cubase. In Cubase I load something like Plugin Allliance Engle Savage(or whatever), turn monitoring on and record. Afterwards I can edit the plugin, disable it, load a different one, etc.
Do you found any issue to your problem? It would be very helpful if you had, because I’m actually in the same case as you. I have the same setting as your, execept that I have a Torpedo Captor (not an X) and use Logic Pro, I can’t figure out what’s wrong with my set up. I have multiple outputs in my interface/run into a radial reamp box/output of my tube amp into the speaker input of the torpedo etc. But even after doing that, all I have is a « noisy »sound into my DAW… I’m a bit disappointed…
Re-Amping “should” be an easy task. I do it all the time.
I’ll write up a simple step-by-step. Please follow up with where it stops working for you.
Record the guitar dry with a DI
1.1 Connect your guitar to your DI box or instrument input on your audio interface. (Do not plug the instrument directly to a line level input.)
1.2 Configure your audio interface if necessary. (This could be activating inputs, configure impedance, etc. You might not have to configure anything.)
1.3 Make sure your audio connections in Cubase are setup properly and matches the channels used on the interface.
1.4 Set input levels appropriately on the interface to ensure no clipping will occur.
Route the DI guitar to a dedicated output
2.1 Make sure you have a line level output on your audio interface to use for re-amping and configure it in Cubase’s Audio Connections.
2.2 Route the output of the DI guitar track in Cubase to the above output
2.3 Connect the re-amp box to the output on your interface and to the input of your guitar amp. The recorded guitar track should now be sent via the re-amp box to your amp.
