Logic’s Amp Designer is a fantastic tool for guitar players. Both Amp Designer and Pedalboard give guitarist’s a ton of amps, speakers, microphones and pedals to craft their perfect tone.
But guitarists are a particular bunch. And sometimes it can be difficult to coax that tone you’re hearing in your head out of any guitar amp. Let alone Amp Designer!
After many years of using Amp Designer, I’d like to think I’ve learned a thing or two about it.
But it took a long time of failing with Amp Designer before ever achieving a tone that I was happy when using it.
When I eventually gave up on believing I knew anything about guitars, I decided to poke through Logic’s guitar patches. And as I tried out the patches I thought:
“Hey, these actually sound pretty good!”
Aha! Maybe, just maybe, I could rely on Amp Designer after all 🙂
Whether you like to use Amp Designer and Pedalboard (or not), these 5 tips can still be helpful. It’s not so much the tool itself as much as what you do with those tools.
So today I’d like to offer you 5 tips for getting more out of Amp Designer:
- The balancing act for coaxing the tone you want out of Amp Designer
- Optimize your guitar’s level going into Amp Designer
- Double-tracking your guitars when you want that doubled guitar sound
- Crafting different amp tones for different guitar tracks
- Multi-miking your Amp Designer tracks for a fuller tone
