Ok here it is, I have a Marshall AVT150 hiding under my desk and am trying to get some good guitar sounds via Micing it up with an SM57 (The only other Mic I have is an SM58 for vocals!). The problem is this, my studio is in the smallest room in the house which is also my office and I live in a small Semi with cardboard walls and dont want to crank my marshall too much incase I annoy the neighbours. I cant seem to get the sound I want via using just the SM57, should I purchase another Mic and use both to seperate channels and then Mix? Or D.I. the guitar straight into my Digidesign 002 rack via a Behringer D.I. 120 box into one channel and send the other signal to my marshall and mic it to a second channel? Or do I say sod this and Buy a Pod Xt pro? What about Micing acoustic guitars? I just Mic'd my Ovation via the SM57 duplicated the audio to a second channel in Pro tools and then added Compression on both channels and delay on one channel. Anyone got any better techniques or advice?
