    Speaker simulator and loadbox, which allows you to record sound directly to an amp at full power without going through the speakers, interesting to record quality sound without going deaf.
    Rack model, no need power, I have version 8 Ohm with which I plug in a lamp head Carvin X100-B.

    Very simple to use as long as we use the right input-output.
    One enters the input, we leave out either by lines or by the simulation outputs of HP. I personally use a sound card M-Audio Fasttrack Pro and I have a nickel if I use the XLR output of the palmer, the other outputs send a bit of saturation, according to test his equipment.

    Remember to use a speaker cable to the amplifier output to the palmer.

    Plugged the sound is very good, I can find the sound of my Carvin 4x12. Better, I can remove its crystalline character by choosing "mellow".
    Basically, a potentiometer is used to select the signal present and another handles the bass. It has one sound, good overall and we play it. At worst, an equalizer in Cubase and you change frequencies.

    I use it for a week and I can finally record my songs with my sound and my pedals. It changed me guitarig although it was doing rather well overall. Now, I must admit they'll have to invest in a lot of effects to simulate all possibilities of software but it's just the charm of the guitar.

    HP simulator different configurations, very convincing with outputs symmetrical, asymmetrical and DI.

    Very easy to use with enough settings to my liking. Provide a preamp of some thirty db before attacking a converter and pass through a compressor, if desired.

    I use it with a head Fender Prosonic and the first time I met a sound recording of electric guitar in a different way with a microphone in front of an enclosure.

    At this level it is no longer the simulation is an orgasm ...
    I used the POD pro.
    The value for money is good.
    No problems ...

    They could provide for the stereo!

    There's no easier

    I do not understand those who love this contraption ... Hello flatness of sound! no relief! no air!
    It can be used for sounds "clean" to the limit ... but when I use a distortion sound is flat and personally I feel a real difference!
    For me, it's useless to have a credible mix or guitars are ahead!

    I bought it for recording the album in my group and after hours of testing I finally found a solution that gave me much satisfaction and realism (although nothing beats a power with microphone): My Triaxis preamp plugged into a POD with only the simulation of activated HP! and again ... there is the "heat" lamps!

    I can tell you that this is not a question of taste in sound reproduction ... but rather a history of sound quality! (In addition to the POD, we can put the speaker you want!)

    on the other hand ... to use Live, Palmer should get out a lot .. and should be misled!

    Finally ... here ... it's just the testimony of someone who has tested and compared!
    You do as you want!

    No power is the power of the head that feeds the pdi-03!
    handy
    Complete connectivity, ergonomic, simple!

    The manual is clear, at the same time, there is no 36 functions!
    The sounds are there, six settings are provided corresponding to different cabs, so many sounds available!

    The sound is very good, very natural!
    At home, I have the opportunity to catch micro, and the result is almost the same!

    large saturation going very well, it's astonishing!
    The 6 settings, can step to any type of sound!
    My favorite set in position normal for large saturation!
    cab and open position for clean sounds!

    The ideal would be a good style neve preamp or chandler......

    The ideal would be a good style neve preamp or chandler to get the signal!
    Otherwise, the sound is almost OK to go in a mix! (There is always a little reverb or delay to be ...)

    Here is an extract taken in microphone (dual roadster to rectify 4x12 cab)

    Here is an extract using the pdi-03 (ptérodriver in the loop of the roadster)
    http://media.putfile.com/pterodriver-son-lead-moderne

    It's simple, plug and play, it sounds, it's even a nice rack!
    The solution for those who want a pro's but do not have the financial means or knowledge sufficient to make a good recovery microphone!

    Excellent value for money!

    The palmer PDI-03 is a fairly simple simulator cabs, which also loadbox and DI.

    Several types of cabins available and positions are limited but clearly if we compare the simulated virtual booths.

    It uses a filter system and power attenuation. We can then use his head amp (maximum 100 to 120 watts) connected to Palmer that will simulate the sound of a cab without making a sound because you do not need a baffle. However you listen you will need a sound card and a headphone jack as the Palmer did not have (it's a shame for that matter).
    We can also put it in its rack.

    We can also put it in its rack.


    One branch headed by the amp via the input connection hp in the palmer and we chose is the simulation output (XLR or 6.35) or the direct output (not simulation).
    Note that there is an exit thru if you want to use the speaker (at last check).
    The advantage being that you can use these outputs at the same time if a sound card has enough inputs (what I could do with the EDIROL FA 101).

    The sound is not difficult to change it just have to touch the buttons on the palmer to change the type of cabin and his style and adjust his amplifier if desired.
    The manual is still not to my knowledge in French.

    Here it really spoils it.

    The simulated cabin with my current configuration is zero.
    I use a Combi Ultra 112 and frankly if I compare the principle of pulses to simulate the guitars as Palmer said that the PDI-03 can get this bed.

    Tested with two heads and every time I get a sound that is not breathing, dynamic zero. In short no interest in simulation and it is a shame because I had bought it.



    I've had it for over a year and I keep using it only as loadbox where he does his job (for cons it heats saw the power received).

    The object is solid and nice but still sincerely if you do not have a very good amp head, so do not plan to use simulation.
    Possibly for the live.
    The day I pay a good amp head I will publish this review!

    Simulator, HP (which among other things save in silence)
    Few knobs which makes it simple qq and directly functional
    No Power


    No particular difficulties
    Basically, just read the inscriptions on the rack itself to the connections.
    The "manual" (a single sheet I believe) is only useful to know what kind of HP you will use.

    I use it by plugging in a head-tube Peavey 5150.
    No worries
    It's still hot (this is quite normal)

    Just have fun with the switches: it sounds fast! very quickly.
    That's the advantage of such a tool: A good sound and fast!

    For those starting in computer music, breadboards who want to bother too, is an ideal tool.

    For those starting in computer music, breadboards who want to bother too, is an ideal tool.
    You set your amp head (in theory, you know well), you plug in the palmer, 2 or 3 adjustments and shoo! All in silence!

    With that, I released my first EP, which consitutents my first test and humble autoprod! (A free download on http://jamyz.free.fr to get an idea of sound)

    Used as follows:
    Ibanez Universe = 5150 = 03 = Palmer PDI M-Audio Fast Track Ultra 8R


    I use it for a year.
    I have not tried equivalent, I have scoured the forums to know what the calculator offer.

    And I preferred the PDI 03 to 04 by PGA "simplicity" I wanted something that has a good sound without having to mess with knobs 4000.
    computer music forces us to touch a little of everything (EQ, compression, etc. ...). mix I was looking for something that sounded so quickly, allowing me to "free" time for the mix (among others ....)

    + What I like: the sound and simplicity
    What I like - here again, I knew exactly what my needs at the time and PDI03 answered.

    Value for money: bah ah sure it could pay less but the result was the appointment, and the sight of what is done elsewhere, we think that ultimately it's not very expensive. This is not theft.

    Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?
    The PDI 03 is one of those little nudges of life, which you can get a result finally really honest with little knowledge and here is interesting: Are you a musician? sound engineer? or simply ... curious;)
    Today, my curiosity led me to find other means of recordings, offering more than opportunities that the palmer.

    But without hesitation, I would do such a choice for the reasons given above + which can be summarized in two words: simplicity and its
