    Hey Tascam,

    DP32 user here. Hope you guys can answer my question.

    Do I have to use a reamp box or is it safe to send a signal from the effect sends of my dp32 to my tube guitar amp for reamping tracks?

    Signal path Ex:

    Dp32 fx send > tube guitar amp/guitar pedals > Dp32 input

    Or

    Dp32 fx send > reamp box > tube guitar amp/guitar pedals > Dp32 input

    Im not sure because the manual says effect sends:
    Rated output level -10 dB
    Total output level +6 dB

    I've read that if your consumer line level is at -10 dB you don't need a reamp box BUT I don't know.

    I've tried reamping thru some effect pedals and sounded pretty good. I don't think I've damaged anything.

    I am new to reamping and inpedance matching and don't want to destroy my tube amp. Would I need a reamp box like radial or little labs reamp boxes to do this safely?

    Welcome to the Tascam Forums, @Tyler . Nothing wrong with revisiting old threads.

    I would start by trying it with the Send at infinity (full anti-clockwise and 0). Then I'd bring up the Send level slowly and see how it sounds. If you get what you want, then that's cool. Only you can decide if it sounds good enough to use as-is.

    Tried it, works and sounds great! Brought both Send settings up to about 86 and kept them there. I can even record two guitar amps with two microphones each if I utilize both Sends. Saved myself $200 on a reamp box, which means I can buy more pedals!

    I have a DP24SD. I'm trying to re amp a dry guitar that's on Track 6 back to track 5. I have the Send 1 out to a Kemper and out of the Kemper back to the unit to record on Track 5. I don't hear anything being recorded on track 5. Am I missing something here? Any help is appreciated.

    1. Is the return input assigned to track 5?
    2. Is track 5 in Record arm mode?
    3. Is track 5 fader up?

    I have it set up like this

    Effects send 2 out to input of the Kemper
    Line out of the Kemper into the input of the Tascam (assigned to track 50.
    Note: The dry guitar DI is on track 6.

    When I hit record, I can hear the dry guitar signal on track 6, but track 5 (record track), I now hear a lot of noise and hissing.

    What is "the input" you are referring to? Whatever that input is, it must be assigned to track #5.

    OK, I think we cross-posted.

    You have to adjust the trim on that input channel, as well as adjusting the output on the device until you get proper levels into the track.

    Ted, I'm assuming you read posts #3 and #5 in this thread, so let's proceed from there.

    There's a post in the Equipment Tips sticky that will walk you through testing signal flow (the sticky Index is in post #1 of the Equipment Tips sticky). That sticky also has several posts on interfacing outboard gear.

    Good luck.
