External Stomp Boxes

Hi all,

I was wondering which way I should go if I want to use my guitar pedals as external effects:

1. Should I our should I not use a reamping box to go from the interface to the pedal

2. Should I go directly back to my interface or mic the real amp (in case I process mono signal)?

3. Will there be latency to be corrected?

I understand, some of these is just a matter of taste. I also understand that I'd better trial and error the whole thing but since I'm at work and don't have access to the studio and since I'd like to hear other peoples' experiences, I just post it here.

How do you go for it?

    1. I've done this a lot without a reamp box, so I don't think you NEED one. That said, mate of mine swears by them. See how you go.

    2. Down to your preference. I like micing an amp when I want to get a flavour of an environment on something but usually I'll go straight back into my interface.

    3. You'll get some delay alright but that's easily sorted, and it might be so small you'll not need to.

    Have fun.

    Thanks prekythepig,

    Well that's cool. I think I should record the same source using a different path each time for people (and myself) to compare.
