Marshall Line Out

The Marshall JVM410H has a speaker emulated line out that is automatically engaged when the amp is in standby mode. This is a very interesting feature. I made a short and quick test of this feature the other day.

I ran the emulated line out from the Marshall into my Line 6 Toneport USB interface. I loaded up the GearBox software and turned off amps and speaker cabinets. This way, I was just using the Toneport as an audio interface and nothing more.

There are 3 guitars on this clip. The rhythm guitar is on Clean channel, green mode. The bass line and the lead guitar is on Crunch channel, orange mode.

It's really useful to have an amp that has a good sounding line out. That way, you can record any time you want without worrying about disturbing people. I can rarely crank up any of my amps and record clips, because of amount of noise that creates...

How does it sound? Does it sound like micing a real amp?

The guitars were recorded without any effects, but I added reverb and delay later in GarageBand.
