05 Mar More news from the “Raiders”: The Schaffer-Vega Diversity and Guitar Rig!
Okay, we heard the SVDS numerous times through big, powerful tube amps.
And here we hear it through a small combo.
So what about something that many members of solodallas.com use: Guitar Rig?
Does the SVDS work together with Guitar Rig? YES, it does! And so will do our replica!
Feel free to listen yourself to the SVDS over Guitar rig, freshly from our test lab. Actually Fil sent this recordings to me for listening, but I like them so much that I made a new posting out of it.
Played with a 1970 SG standard: Guitar RIG SVDS
And another one, something bluesy. Again recorded with Guitar Rig, this time a 1969 SG custom with brand new Angus Young signature pickup in her: svds 69 custom guitar rig
Both recordings right out of Guitar Rig, no additional EQ or other modifications. Just a guitar, the SVDS and Guitar Rig. And FIl 🙂
Guitar Rig settings (boldly asked Fil for settings screenshot :-P)

Dumb question. I just bought guitar rig 5 and was wondering how you hook TSR to it? Im guessing go out of the guitar into TSR into my mbox (all instrument cables)? Just wanted to make sure i did everything right before doing it haha.

Howdy Partner Ant here 🙂
Sorry for late reply missed your comment, im a heavy user of GR so here is my input!
how you described is exactly how it goes :), however i have found that overdriving the input on an audio interface (your mbox) creates an unwanted distortion as i think it reacts differently to an amp
here is what i do, i leave the TSR Boost at 50% and just play with the compression knob, if you want to further clean boost add the volume pedal module in GR before the Amp keep in mind the TSR can boost around 20dB so use that as a guide
Happy rocking 🙂

I have a Mac i7 Desktop, Guitar rig 5 pro and Kontrol interface, Logic Pro X and A Schaffer Replica on the way! Looks like Im set!

Nice setup, same as mine, although I’m running a 100 watt YJM and old G12-65 and G12M Greenblacks instead of GR5.
I highly recommend the Slate Digital Virtual Mixing Rack (VMR) and Virtual Buss Compressor (VBC) packages. Amazing stuff for cheap and works great in Logic!
You won’t be disappointed!

Hey guys, got a problem here.
I wanted to buy GR Mobile as Ant advised below, but it is out of production and I can’t find any in my country. What other USB Audio Interfaces would you suggest? I was thinking of M-Audio Fast Track II. I need something that would work as an external sound card and give me an ability to record guitar and connect headphones to it. Of course the sound quality is important, but I can’t afford anything more expensive than that Fast Track.
bananePosted at 22:52h, 13 March
The M-Audio Fast Traxk is fine indeed. Got one myself, and I like it.
AntPosted at 00:20h, 14 March
ah dam, fast track looks like a good substitute, when i got my mobile version it was coming from spain took a week to get to me i live in the uk

Anyone on here ever use sony acid studio ??
MrNachoplazaPosted at 22:03h, 09 March
Hi everyone i´ve jsut downloaded Guitar Rig 4 but can´t use it well.When i start it i can hear the guitar sound trough the speakers clean(without any effects) but when i add an amp or effects or whatever it doesn´t change…What should i do?
AntPosted at 22:27h, 09 March
Check the audio settings, u may need to download the asio driver to get it to fully work.
U need to define the input type in the options
What audio interface u using?
MrNachoplazaPosted at 23:03h, 09 March
I just solved that problem (but actually i don´t know what i did haha)
Now i have another problem :(( there is a “buzz” noise, like a radio (once i turned up the speakers and i could hear a radio station :O )
i´m using “realtek” as audio interface.
Thanks for the help 😉
AntPosted at 14:38h, 10 March
Oh good, the noise is normal due to the mic input on your sound card the more gain you add the more off it u will hear, its what happened to me when i first started using it, to fully experince it u will need an audio interface
I use guitar rig mobile which cost me £70 (about $110) great little interface one input and output with volume controls and its the size of a cigarette packet 🙂
AntPosted at 15:14h, 10 March
You also get the essential version of guitar rig which is a cut down version of the full version but still sounds good 😉 u get the same jump amp thats in fils pic
srodaxPosted at 21:02h, 11 March
Sorry for interrupting your discussion, but I need to be sure about sth. Ant, so if I have the Guitar Rig Mobile, I don’t have to buy any good PC sound card, right? It won’t be used? All sound processing will be done by the unit itself? Cause I’m quite concerned about sound quality.
And another question if you may – what good and not expensive headphones would you suggest for listening to your guitar recordings?
AntPosted at 17:59h, 12 March
Glad to be of assistance 🙂
On the mobile audio interface the pc CPU does the processing
this is my setup 🙂
Netbook running intel Atom CPU (uber crap 1.6Ghz)
Hardware: Guitar Rig Mobile USB Audio interface
Software: Guitar Rig 5 Pro (I upgraded from the essential version that was included with the package)
Set of decent PC speakers 😉
You can manualy select the aduio quality in the audio settings within Guitar Rig the higher the quality the more CPU power your pc will need for lower latency. My netbook works fine with Guitar rig even with its weak cpu, quality i got it set on is 44Khz 192kbps (standard CD quality)
as for headphones i would recommend Skull Candy best audio quality i found, try and find one with decent grip on the head also as they tend to fall off when your midway through a song ^^
my latest video (let there be Rock) was recorded completly with guitar rig you can see the audio interface on the table on the left flashing when im playing, one input (guitar) and one output (speaker/headphones)
click my name on this or my other comments to see my vids
srodaxPosted at 20:45h, 12 March
I knew that the CPU did the processing, but was concerned about my sound card only. I’ve already seen the vid as I watch almost anything users post here ;). You did great! And you got nice sound there, I tried GR and didn’t get so close to the lost sound (as mr Fil called it recently). Could be because I don’t have a Gibson, but a Vintage VS6 SG. When I use pure GR I get quite bassy sound. That’s why I tried playing with GR amps and cabinets emulated via impulse responses. Anyway, I’m a beginner (been playing for just a year), so I’m still learning here.
I’m looking forward to buying my copy of GR Mobile, but I’m low on cash and have a lot to buy: AY sig pickup, speakers, headphones, software. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to afford a vintage amp or real Gibson :P.
AntPosted at 23:22h, 12 March
cool cheers for watching hehe, yea im in the same boat 🙂 budget tone lol, i also do find it a bit bassy i just roll off some base on the cab and amp which helps and add a treble boost before the amp, thats boosted by about 1/5 suggest u try that 😉
AntPosted at 22:16h, 08 March
Yay!!!!! GR tests been looking forward to this especaliy as im a heavy user of GR 🙂
strange settings on GR it self but i can hear the difference nice bright with lots of bite
thank you very much guys for the tests 🙂
rpatzeltPosted at 22:42h, 07 March
The SVDS combined with cheap or emulated amps sure sound sweet 🙂 I have a humble request though: please record the next test with and without the SVDS (in the reverse order, of course) to better get the difference.
bananePosted at 22:55h, 07 March
Hey Radu! Yes, can be done. Will keep this in mind 🙂
rpatzeltPosted at 23:01h, 07 March
And if you’ll ever forget this, the request will remain written on this page 🙂 Ha, ha I’m so happy for you guys, squeezing the best from the SVDS.
rjofigPosted at 01:26h, 06 March
nice, for budget amp owners, this is great to hear, and so is the MS-2 demo.
I have a Marshall solid-state budget amp that I rarely use, an MG-10 – hopefully it will sound nicer with the replica.
bananePosted at 06:56h, 06 March
Yes, will work too. Had the same combo (wasmy first one) but sold it, otherwise I would demo it now too 🙂
SCgrad98Posted at 01:17h, 06 March
Great sound! Okay, Franz & Fil, you gotta help me a bit on this one. How did you connect the SVDS to your computer? Did you go straight out of the monitor (front) output and into your sound card/audio interface?
bananePosted at 06:54h, 06 March
Yes indeed, straight out of the monitor front output into soundcard.
SCgrad98Posted at 23:20h, 06 March
Awesome, thanks for the reply, Franz.
dash8311Posted at 21:27h, 05 March
Wow. Where do I sign up 🙂
SoloDallasPosted at 22:05h, 05 March
Right here 😀
Wait a little longer; we’ll do post a list of pre-orders in a while.
dash8311Posted at 22:53h, 05 March
Great! (my original comment wasn’t an actual formal request to sign up, more that I was blown away from the SVDS’ ability to create such a sound… 😀 …but me, like many others, will be signing up as well!)
Any further sneak peaks at the ‘Titanic’ box design for the replica?
SoloDallasPosted at 16:57h, 05 March
Franz… you can’t keep a secret!!!!
Again, I don’t know why I hadn’t tried before. I just love it. The SVDS still influences MASSIVELY Guitar Rig, too. It’s completely Angus Young to me. And the best tone ever.
bananePosted at 16:59h, 05 March
Yes, great tone there. So I let it slip through 😛
SoloDallasPosted at 17:01h, 05 March
JohnnyPosted at 16:53h, 05 March
sounds great guys 🙂
