Chapter 23. Recording Guitar with SONAR ... > Re-Amping with SONAR Home Studio

Re-Amping with SONAR Home Studio

Wouldn’t it be great if you could choose a guitar’s amp tone while mixing down instead of being locked into the tone you used while recording? Thanks to plug-in technology and fast computers, you can.

For years, engineers and guitarists have used a technique called re-amping.

As the guitarist plays, the amp signal is recorded—but so is the straight signal, on a separate track.
