Wow... Thank you Knopflers Fingers! emoticon
Normally I play with Engl amps, but when I play or record at home I play through a modeling amp. This is recorded with a Roland Cube 80x into a mixer which goes into the pc. Between guitar & amp I have the BSM rpa. That's all. I record with Magix Samplitude music studio where I added compression & reverb. I play almost clean with no gain (less guitar volume). For the end solo I used a little more gain (more guitar volume).

Thanks again for your kind words.

I’ll have a listen later Stratman, think I’ve got some of your other tracks saved on sound cloud, The Loner possibly? When you say a modelling amp do you mean the Yamaha THR? Like you i use Engls for gigs, but the THR 10-X at home, sometimes with a Boss [sign in to see URL] outcomes!

Yeah The Loner, but that one sounds a little shrill. This one sounds better I think.
The modelling amp I use is the Roland Cube. But I was impressed with the Yamaha THR when I tried it in the store.

Great version, finely balanced sounds! At some point you even used the kind of sweep Ritchie uses these days - nice nod.

Where did you find the BT? I think I have located the same, but it's only 6 mins - did you loop the last section to extend it to ten, or is there another version floating around?

Thank you mtb7!
I looped it to ten minutes.

Nice sound and effects, and nicely played, so good job Stratman70:

For what it's worth. It sounds like something is clipping in parts of the guitar signal, towards the middle of the song, I'd suspect the RPA pedal, as the likely cause. Where is it in the signal chain, before or after the Cube ? The digital amp should be dumping most of what the RPA does anyway as the final sound is modelled. Around 1:36-1:45 something, the guitar, or the effect, either is, or sounds out of tune, which is odd, as it sounds fine elsewhere.

I think the original Slide parts at least was recorded direct to the desk, without using amps at all, and just used desk gain. The slide needs more "saturation", if you know what I mean. Not distortion, but fattening, which I think came from the Desk gain/EQ.

Anyway nice one as usual.

Re:


Thank you BSB. You're right about clipping part. I place the rpa before the Cube of course, between guitar & Cube. It works fine for playing at home but for recording it gets a little difficult to keep the tone clean for some reason. I checked the peak levels.

About the out of tune part, I have that bad habit of picking up the guitar, play and record and forget to (fine) tune before recording. But sometimes it's also because of fretting too hard on a scalloped neck. emoticon

Not quite sure what you mean by 'saturation'. Do you mean the colour or thickness of the sound? I tried to get the right amount of reverb on it, but when I added more reverb, it became too metal/steel cold sounding. I couldn't find the right sound I was looking for. I obviously didn't want it to become too dry.

Thanks again for listening and your fine reply! Nice to read!

Regards "saturation", I mean it's not quite "fat/big" enough! I don't mean distortion but a little more clean drive maybe. Again I imagine the original track may have been the same guitar track doubled up a couple of times, to really "fatten" out the slide. That would retain the delicate slide sound but make it just "bigger" and possibly adjusting the EQ of the different copies of the track would give the result. Not possible to do it live, but perhaps fun to experiment with.

Anyway as ever fun to do and a good job from you.
