Stereo in with Amplitube

Postby trevoraron13 » Thu Jul 30, 2020 4:54 am

I'm using a virtual B3 and want to run it through a Leslie rotary in Amplitube 4. I tried running the instrument through Amplitube with cabinet bypass on, and the amp turned off, and I noticed that it seemed thinner than normal. I realized that Amplitube is running in mono input mode, so I tried moving that to stereo with configurations 2 and 6. However, 2 and 6, with running everything off, still seemed like it effected the sound a bit --- in once case it was slightly louded.

How do people use Amplitube as an effect pedal? What is the best way for it to receive stereo input?

Hi trevoraron13

You don't say what B3 or DAW you're using, but probably the best idea (if possible) would be to run the output of the B3 as mono, into a mono to stereo AmpliTube with a single cab. After all, the only part of a real Hammond/Leslie that is stereo is the 2 mics on the rotating horn and drum.

For example, in Logic Pro X you can open the B3 as a mono instrument, switch its internal cabinet model off and then insert AT4 as a mono to stereo effect. By using config 1, the organ sound stays mono until you get to Cab A where the microphones and rotating speakers give you the stereo effect.

Even if you can't make the B3 mono, config 1 folds down the L+R input to mono so it should sound the same.

Hope that makes sense.
