I'm going to try doing it, using direct in through my firepod on electric guitars / bass, then modeling through guitar rig. For acoustic guitar / vocals I would use an NT2-A. So far the audio recording seems pretty damn good, and the fact that I have good EQ, real time plugins, and much better options than Adobe Audition 1.5 that I was using before, I'm hoping it will improve my stuff. Not to mention I can now make my drums in ezdrummer right in the program without having to export anything. WICKED! :-? Anyone ever try it?
