Winfried Knobloch "Röhrentechnik ganz modern" Pflaum Verlag München ISBN
3-7905-0660-5. IIRC around 20 years ago a former friend released some
notes about this topic in the VDT-Magazin, IIRC he at least has given a
talk at a Tonmeistertagung about it. Anyway, I experienced that
recording an e. guitar from an elCheapo transistor amp with an elCheapo
microphone at low volumes (when living in a rental apartment) always
sounds better, than tube amp and speaker emulations, just the Hughes &
Kettner tube preamp was amazing, when connecting the guitar directly to
the mixer. Guitarix and all proprietary simulations sometimes can be
used, but usually even a Boss CS-3 or Boss OD-2, a parametric EQ
provided by the mixer and e.g. a SPX90II early reflection already beats
Zoom, Guitarix and friends. YMMV! Why are Marshall stacks not replaced
by Zoom, Guitarix and friends directly connected to the PA?
