hi everyone. i'm new to this forum. i write and record music in my parents house in a small room. not exactly sure how big it is, or the dimensions, but it's small. let me give you a run down of my cheap recording set up: an old 8 channel, no name mixer a Nady cardiod condenser mic a Roadie condenser mic several samson and Carvin dynamic omnidirectional mics Cool Edit Pro Toshiba Laptop Rickenbacker Solid State Amplifier 4x12 Fender Toronado (not Tornado ) i'm trying to figure out the best way to mic out my guitar tracks. the way i'm currently doing this is by running my Nady condenser through my mixer, running a cable with a stereo-to-quarter inch jack into my laptop's soundcard, and recording it using Cool Edit Pro. i usually don't have a problem recording my acoustic guitars, or even my drum tracks, as i am usually able to EQ those fairly well. but for some reason, my guitar track, especially when distorted, comes out sounding tinny and very low level. does anyone have any advice as far as mic placement, or any other aspect is concerned? i'd greatly appreciate any assistance or advice. thank you!
