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

The exact sounds of a primo collection of vintage and modern amps

Sweetwater has been one of the biggest proponents of Avid's Eleven Rack since day one. We've helped thousands of guitar players get into Eleven Rack. And we've also seen tons of feedback, reviews, and requests. Sweetwater's latest custom preset patches were created in response to the massive request for pure, unadulterated amp tones. We help you skip hours of editing with our new Real Amp Experience presets. Each preset represents a well-known amp at its original state. Each amp includes an appropriate reverb, spring for built-in reverbs or studio reverb for those without, and nothing else enabled. Of course, you can add all the effects you want, but Sweetwater's Real Amp Experience presets give you that perfect starting place to create your signature tone.

  • Sweetwater-exclusive amp tones that are ready to rock
  • Ideal starting point for creating your signature sound

Excellent Combo!

I am new to the world of computer recording so I decided to go with the Eleven Rack/Pro Tools combo to simplify things. This combo was super easy to install and setup. I had a couple of questions that Sweetwater's Tech support easily handled. I was very surprised at the quality of the preset sounds on the Eleven Rack. Very nice indeed! Pro Tools has been incredibly stable and super easy to use. I highly recommend this combination to everyone interested in easy recording and fantastic guitar sounds!

Great for gigging and stuido

I purchased Eleven Rack from Sweetwater about 4 or 5 years ago now and have been using it for both live shows and studio recording. Very durable and has great tones. For live shows I run it straight through a PA speaker for my monitor and the sound guys love the clean direct signal they get from my rig. I control it with the Behringer MIDI Foot Controller FCB1010. Works great and very responsive. Much easier to edit sounds using the software in ProTools than with the on board screen interphase, but both work. The pre-sets are fun, but you will likely want to edit them for your own purposes. Would definitely recommend for both live and studio work.

Best Pro Tools Interface

Why buy Pro Tools without an official interface for it? It can modulate any amp and speaker system setup, has universal connections to any device. I got all the pedals and amps built in, and can plug in any instrument. Love the guitar orange, but it also is great for vocal processing through the amps and pedals necessary for Rock and Metal. An incredible tool for writing music ! Sweetwater has also allowed me to recover all those presets from those musicians whom are long gone now. Someone really invested heavily in Avid to allow this product to reach the music instrument industry at this price;) Even though there maybe products that can do individual things better, not a single one of them can do as much as this.

Sweetwater Advice

Shawn Fitzgerald

In my years of studio work, I've recorded guitars in countless ways — from isolation cabs to running direct to my DAW. The Avid Eleven Rack gives me the sound of real amp rigs, but with the convenience of running direct. There's nothing quite like having thousands of rigs in a 2U interface.

Aaron Swaidner

As a guitar player who also spends time in the recording studio, Avid's Eleven Rack gives me exactly what I want - whether I am playing out, or plugging in. Right out of the box, the Eleven Rack provides an abundance of tones I've always wanted. It also acts like a plug-in in Pro Tools, but all of the processing takes place inside the hardware itself, so it doesn't affect any of my computer's own processing.

Nick Schenkel

My studio's Eleven Rack is still at the top of the heap when it comes to amplifier modeling. It "feels" right, and the models respond to the dynamics of my playing the way real amps do.
