Use IK Multimedia Amplitube 2 w/ real effects, Izotope Trash?
I'm considering getting IK Multimedia Amplitube 2 Upgrade (I have a light version of Amplitube bundled with Pro Tools LE 7.1cs10). I'm also attracted to Izotope's Trash.
1. While Amplitube 2 has a load of great stomp and rack effects, the fuzz options are limited (a solid state fuzz preamp and a simulation of the Arbiter Fuzz Face). As I am into recording psychedelic/garage rock, 1960's-sounding fuzztone--rather than "distortion" or "overdrive"--is a big deal for me. I have a number of great vintage and contemporary pedals (Maestro Fuzz-Tone, Mosrite Fuzzrite, Big Muff, Roland Double Beat, ZVex Fuzz Factory). Can I run my guitar through one of those pedals into the D.I. input of my Mbox 2 and into Amplitube 2 as if I was running through the pedal into a real amp?
2. Can Amplitube 2 be used with Izotope Trash, which has more specifically fuzz distortion options? Anyone used the two of them together? How did it work?
3. Anyone know if any of the Amplitube 2 amp options are analogous to a Hi-Watt head like Pete Townshend used?
Thanks for any input.
My set-up: iMac G5, 1.8 mHz, 1G RAM, Mbox 2, Pro Tools LE, Mac OS X 10.4.8
