The Complete Guitar Recording Tool
All-in-one re-amping rig lets you get creative with your tone
Have you ever recorded a guitar part, and then later wanted to go back and tweak the tone? The Eleven Rack makes this easy. As you record with Avid's Pro Tools, you can lay down both a mono dry signal and a stereo effects track. Even cooler, you can embed your effects settings right into the audio track, allowing you to recall and change settings at any time. And if you want to run your dry signal through your favorite amplifier, the Eleven Rack's instrument-level output acts as a traditional re-amping box too.
- Record dry and wet tracks at the same time
- Re-amp dry tracks later with tweaked tones
