Hello, this is my first post here. I decided to join to learn more about recording. I am an enthusiastic beginner, but limited in resources and experience, so I hope others will tolerate my questions which are apt to be basic. I just read Mastering Audio by Katz, and am almost finished Behind the Glass. Both were good reads, and I think I learned something from the simpler parts. In any event, my question is this. Will professionals ever record electric guitar direct, say through a good guitar preamp and then into a DAW? Or, is micing the only way to go? I recently tried direct via an ADA MP1 preamp, and I thought it sounded very good, but I remain curious whether the pros ever record electric guitar direct.
