Samples, reamping and retaining a sound

Hi Jens, and thank you for doing this!

To my ears, your productions and mixes definitely have a sound to them (and what a great sound it is!). When you are hired to mix and not produce/record, how often do you find the need to layer your own samples (not from the session) and reamp guitars/bass? Assuming the recording is not done by David or someone else from the Fascination Street crew.

Thanks Yule.

I usually use my own samples, I rarely work with session samples. I do, however, depend on the real recording as much as possible.

For rhythm guitars, I tend to re-amp 95% of the time.
Hopefully, I can blend it with the original sound for character, or use guitar 3 and 4 (if quad tracked) from the originals. Bass, leads, and cleans I would reamp if I have to.
