Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Customize the guitar sound, part of GarageBand Essential Training.
- One of the main advantages of using…Garage Band's virtual guitar amps,…is that you can change the sound of the guitar…even after you've recorded it.…When you mic a real guitar amp, the sound you record…is determined by the settings of the amp,…the type of speaker cabinet the amp is driving,…the microphone you're using,…where that microphone is placed, and the guitar itself.…And you're more or less committed to the sound you capture.…Now, yes you can make changes to the EQ,…and apply other plugins or effects…to a recorded guitar amp, but you can't…really change the overall sound itself in any major way.…
But when you use Garage Band's built in amp modlers,…you not only have access to an incredible collection…of virtual amps that emulate the sounds of…some of the most popular and iconic guitar amps…in music history, but you're free to customize…and dial in your guitar sound…before, during, and after recording your tracks.…So let's take a look at how this works.…Now I could have my guitar connected and play live…
