    Need help with noise on guitar track

    Whenever I record the guitar, I get this super high pitch hissing noise that I can get rid of with a noise gate fx when the guitar isn't being played (very beginning of the clip) But as soon as he starts playing, the noise gate isn't effective any longer. You have to turn the volume up louder...

    USB Mic Question

    We're offering some guitar lessons via webcam for customers. It's not your typical setup where the teacher is sitting in front of his computer and webcam at his desk. The teacher is sitting on a chair in front of a backdrop. About 5-6 feet in front of him is a TV screen sitting on top of a...

    MS with shotgun? Feedback anyone?

    I´ve been asked to record a guy in a living room playing guitar and singing. I first thought to have a cardioid for the singer and the shotgun for the guitar so I can get better signals from each source. But then we discussed a bit more and decided it would be nice to have some of the ambient...

    Electric Guitar Tremolo Effects - Analog vs Digital

    Hey everyone, I am interested in hearing your thoughts on analog vs digital tremolo effects, especially on electric guitar. To be clear, I am not talking about what Fender (erroneously) calls "tremolo arms" on guitar, also known as whammy bars, which is actually a vibrato effect. I am talking...

    Pushing Air - Oh what a feeling!

    Most of the recording I've done has been using amp modelers and cab simulators for my guitars (Guitar Rig Pro 5.0, Amplitube 4). Because of this I've been looking at both the Kemper Profiling Amp and the Line 6 Helix and thinking about the future. Since moving into the city I've pretty much kept...
