Ignite Amps – Emissary – Free guitar amp VST by Have Guitar

Taking a stint look at the Ignite Amps Emissary – a free amp simulator that sounds very good according to me. The Emissary is free to download and you just need a digital audio workstation (DAW) to use it, if you haven’t got that Reaper is a good alternative to start with. What is it? It is a VST-plugin that simulates a guitar amplifier – it has one clean and one gain channel and I’d say we’re sniffin around metal territory here… but with some tweaking it surely can be used for other genres as well.

So, this is more of a “let’s see what it can do” video and it’s the first one of it’s kind (for me!) so hopefully I will develop the format as we go along. Feel free to comment about that (yes, just a I said in the video!).

Besides the Emissary I have used a bunch of other plugins to get this to sound (hopefully) better; Kjaerhus Classic compressor and delay, Ignite Amps TSB-1 (Tyrant Screamer, like a Tube Screamer in VST format) and Nadir (cab/IR loader) and Variety of Sounds BootEQMkII. Best of all? They are all good plugins and free to download and use as well!

There you have it, my first dent with some free software for recording guitar – I do hope you’ll like it. Please do subscribe to Have Guitar to gimme some support, that will be appriciated! To all of you who allready do: Thanks!!!

Reaper: Route Addictive Drums 2 to audio tracks

Here’s a short but useful how-to-video for Reaper. This video will show you how to route the drum channels in XLN Audios Addictive Drums 2 to audio channels in Reaper.

Why would you like to do that?! Well, Addictive Drums 2 have some nice effects built in… but what if you want add your favourite compressor to the bass drum? Or if the overhead need some lovin from your prefered EQ? You don’t have to export the drums and import them as audio tracks – instead you can just add the effects to the routed audio tracks directly – that’s why!

This is Have Guitars first “Reaper video” and hopefully there will be more. The version of Reaper in this video is v5.40. I’ll need to find a way record video from the screen rather than just using stills, in this video I tried Flashback Pro 5 but it would not record the audio. Working on that.

Hope you had some use for this tutorial and if you liked the video and wan’t to support the channel please do subscribe! It’s free and you’ll get a notification when there’s a new video out and best of all, it’s of course totally free! 😉
