reamp with dual rectifier

Hi,

I'm getting kinda frustrated trying to get a good sound from my dual rec. I'm using a sm57 through an ADesigns Pacifica into a Fireface 800. I have a feeling most of it has to do with my mic placement and amp settings. And being the guitarist, I already have a lot on my plate just trying to double and triple track all the songs...

so, what I was thinking about doing is recording everything direct using amplitube and getting all the tracks worked out perfectly without having the hassle of micing the dual rec, and once i get all the tracks done, i will use one of those reamping devices to run the clean DI tracks back into the boogie, and focus on the mic placement and such. And then trash the ampltube tracks and just use the mic'ed tracks. Is there any issues with doing it this way? Will the reamped guitar tracks sound natural?

I wouldn't be inclined to triple track with a Dual Recto.
You'll end up with too much low mid frequency buildup and the guitars will turn to much.

You'll probably find single tracks on L and R to sound fuller and clearer.
Triple track with 3 different amps.

I usually do 6 tracks in total- 3 on L, 3 on R and never the sam amp on each side.
Dual Recto, Prosonic and JCM800, sometimes an Engl Powerball.

A TS9 or OD808 or equivalent will take care of that.

A multiband comp can also do the trick.
