Thanks to @GOOBALL JEFF I’m thinking of redoin the recording setup in my small home studio. I’ve been looking deeper and deeper into this Strymon Iridium, amp sim thing all week. As far as i can tell between the Iridium and the Walrus Audio ACS1; they both cost the same, they both are excellent and they sound different when they are side by side....which they wont be in my house. I think I’m swaying slightly in favor or the Walrus ACS1 with its stero outputs and ability to simulate two amps at once for a richer sound. Which is how I used to play live and when i had a bigger studio. Plus the extra distortion in the Iridium is beyond the level of dirt that i like. So But I’m confused...... so I’ve done a little drawing. Do i run one channel out of the Amp Simulator and one from the last pedal on my board into an interface like a Scarlet and then out of that into a pair of studio monitors, or do I go straight out with two cables to the monitors and only need the Scarlet for recording to my mac? And if I’m using the headphone output on the amp simulator then I’m hearing my signal before the modulation pedals....so I’d need to use the headphone output on the Scarlet, right? Or put the amp simulator at the end of the chain after all the modulation and drives. Or do i have this all wrong? And then, if I’m right about any of this, I need to buy good small space studio monitors. A pair of KRK Rokit 5 Classics seem to be about as good as I could afford. Anything out there better for less? I figure I will be able to sell two amps and a few liters of plasma and just about break even.
