Been recording with spdif today and reamped some stuff.
I love how clean and silent the input signal is. Clean sounds work amazingly. But I have some issues with the distorted sounds, they sound a little harsh. I connected the main outs of the kpa to my active monitors and the sound is better, more balanced, tighter low end, so I know how it can sound. Since normally the output of my interface is connected to the same monitors I would expected the spdif sound to be more or less the same, but it's not. Not unusable, but I think it could be better.
Now, I did a reamp before with a track I recorded into the input of my audio interface (before I had the KPA, I used Amplitube) into the same profile/rig and that one sounds better. Same guitar, same pickup. I noticed that the waveform of that dry track showed more dynamics, while the spdif recorded track seems more even. Also, there was more volume in the dry track than with the kpa one.
So I wonder if you guys record hot or not when recording for reamping?
There are so many settings for volume in the KPA as well as other settings dealing with either volumes, spdif, pick up sensitivity, etc, that I am a bit at a loss as where to start to get the direct tone more towards the tone I get when connecting directly to my monitors.
Thanks for any info you might have.
