This week’s video is a simple DIY video. I’m building a cheap reamp box with inspiration from an old newspaper article from 2012. (In English at the bottom of the page).
If you, like many others, have recorded the guitar directly to the computer, and tried to play it through an amplifier afterwards, then you have probably discovered that it is not always completely problem-free. A guitar amplifier expects a high-ohmic instrument signal while the signal you send out from your sound card is a low-ohming line signal. In addition, there are in principle always problems with earth loops and noise in the signal. What you need then is a box specifically for the purpose, but they are often relatively expensive.
If you want to start trying and be inspired by the world of reamp, I recommend starting with this little project. Provided you can solder reasonably well.
Build your own reamp box
This weeks video is a simple DIY video. I build a reamp box with inspiration from an old guitar magazine from 2012.
If you like many others have recorded guitar directly to your computer, and then tried to play that signal through an amp, you might have experienced that it’s not that simple. A guitar amp expects a high ohm instrument signal while the signal you send from your audio interface is a low ohm line signal. There will also be problems with ground loops and noise in your signal. This is where you need a tool made for this purpose, but they can be pretty expensive.
If you want to try out reamping and be inspired by that whole world I recommend that you try this little project. You just need basic soldering skills.
