Amplitube problem

Posted on

Member Since: Feb 14, 2003


I've got amplitube vst running on Steinberg WaveLab, and as i tried it out, i noticed it modifies the signal in parallel to the original signal, which means that when i play the guitar, i can hear the unmodified signal feeded through to the output with the distorted (and whatever else fx) signal, and it makes it sound weird. So is there a way to mute the unmodified signal from the output or is this just the way Amplitube works and cannot be come over with?

Couls you tell us something more about your setup??

Wich soundcard are you using and how are you connecting your guitar to the computer??

i've got a soundblaster live 5.1 and the guitar is plugged to mic in, and i use the kX project drivers, with only the mic line connected to the ASIO inputs so the soundcard itself doesn't generate any of the unmodified signals that play with the amplitube.

you plug a guitar out into a mic in??? Is this an electric guitar out? That'll never sound good unless you have a preamp in there, which I doubt the SB does...but ya never know.

i used to plug my guitar into the 1/4" mic pre on the front of SB Live drive. not exactly recording material, but great for a quick jam or to warm my fingers up.

sawyer, doesn't amplitube have some sort of "mix" adjustment, where you choose the dry/wet signal ratio?

Yes, I believe it has that option. Also make sure you do not have the line in selected on your SB card's recording mixer. You will need to open the window's mixer view for the SB card and check under the recording preferance's and make sure it is not selected, as that will cause the problem you speak of.

yes i have disabled all other direct feed sources except the asio input and i still haven't figured out how to fix it as Amplitube itself doesn't seem to have any adjustment for this.. although it could be the process itself causing this, since Amplitube processes only mono signal, and the way i've plugged the guitar to the mic in, feeds the signal to both channels, and therefore the other channel must feed through the signal unaffected.

Nah - your problem is that you have direct monitoring enabled somewhere in either Wavelab, or your SB's configuration. Have a look for this paramater and switch it off, failing that - have you looked on the Standard Windows Sound Control Pannel (the speaker icon in the bottom right) Make sure that the "Mic In" is muted.

heh nope no direct monitoring on anywhere.. it doesn't do this when i use other VSTs or DX plugins on WaveLab.. i don't have any mic in's online in the sound blaster driver windows either.. i'm not even using them because they don't have ASIO support :P
