PreAMPed Sound Clips

 

The following sound clips illustrate some of the possibilities of PreAMPed.  The tracks were all rendered and then encoded using LAME (3.99.5 using -V0).  All sound clip examples had the EQ section of PreAMPed bypassed.

 

Full Mix

Here is a sound clip example of a demo song illustrating the effects of PreAMPed.  The basic song track list consists of the following:

  • Drum Track:  Single stereo drum loop track without additional EQ or compression (from Sony Creative Software)
  • Guitar Tracks:  Two guitar tracks – direct recording using Amplitube plugin from IK Multimedia
  • Bass Track:  Direct recording with DAW EQ and compression plugin
  • Master Track: MLimiter from MeldaProduction

The following clips show the before and after effects of using PreAMPed.    The “before” track had all instances of PreAMPed disabled.  The “after”  track uses four instances of PreAMPed.  One on the drum track, bass track, guitar buss, and master track (before the limiter).

Bass

This is a clip of an unprocessed bass, recorded directly using a Focusrite 2i2 interface.  The bass is a MIM Fender Jazz bass, slightly modified (Badass 2 bridge and Guitar Fetish replacement pickups).  Both pickups were turned on full and the tone control was off.  The After clip uses the Tape D preamp model.

Guitar

This is a clip of a guitar recorded direct using the Focusrite 2i2 interface.  Reverb has been added at the same amount to both examples.  The guitar is a tele-style guitar from Rondo Music.  The bridge pickup was used with the tone control off.  Please remember, this is a direct recording of the guitar with no amp or amp simulator.  The After clip uses the Red preamp model.
