DI / overdrive / valve emulation for recording - Hartke VXL?

Recommended Posts

Hi folks

Recording a blues/rock album next month. Looking for a DI / overdrive / valve emulation pedal that I can use to have a seperate channel with some grit / top end gnarl (definitely not fuzz) to blend with a clean signal from my GK rig.

Tried a Sansamp BDDI previously but not keen on the mid scoop.

I've used a Line 6 amp previously and quite liked the Ampeg model. Do the pod's have the same models? Are the Behringer V amps comparable?

EBS Micro II looks like it would do the trick and Sansamp Para Driver too but both pricey and I probably wont use it live so reluctant to shell out that much.

The Aguilar tonehammer looks like a possibility but read mixed reviews on the AGS.

Then I remembered the Hartke VXL. Anyone had experience of these? Do they have a dry / flat out to go to the amp as well as a post eq/effect signal for the desk?

Any other suggestions?

Many thanks for your help - sorry for so many questions!

Cheers

John

Have a look at DHA pedals, I'm sure there will be something to suitable also there is an Eden pedal which is well regarded
Good luck with your project

The Behringer BDI21 is a nice piece of kit. I don`t know if it has the features you`re after, but have a look up on it. It`s one of those items that punch well above their weight - and only about £40 new.

Ok.
I've spent some time with both my vxl and m80.
Both will do exactly as You ask.
Di out and then from the parallel out on the right below the input to your gk for your clean sound.
Btw the mxr can definitely do it too
