I like to save a dry copy when possible, but I have some limitations when recording stereo fx though outboard gear. My setup is as follows:
Guitar > FX8 > Kemper > SPDIF > audio interface > computer > VST FX > reamp box > FX8 etc..
I can obtain a dry copy via the Kemper if a mono signal is recorded, and I can grab the dry signal through the audio interface DI when using stereo VST amp sims and fx.
However, I think it would be handy if I could grab a dry copy of everything going through the FX8 and/or Kemper in stereo, for reamping, tweaking, and comping purposes. It seems we play differently when we interact with time based effects, and they become a part of the performance.
Do you guys DI everything, and if so how do you go about it? I've been looking at the Lehle P-Split II, which looks as though it could solve my particular problem, but I am always open to other suggestions.
