how much Watt's should a guitar amp be, to record electric distorted guitars, in studio, professional, or home ? (is there a minimum... standard, or maximum Watts ? )
I've just bought a second hand pair of 520 Active and swapped a tweeter. Everything works fine except one thing: One of them has a clear,non distorted I've opened the box to replace the tweeter and arranged all the cables in such way the airflow is not affected.
Switched the inputs between them, same result
What do you think? Is the amp damaged?
I'll post a recording to show you exactly what I mean.

As you can see, the first monitor has a higher gain setting than the other one, to reveal the difference
So I had a pretty good singer in my studio yesterday laying down a vocal track. I used a AKG C414 XLS mic with a fethead, plugged into my new ART Pro Channel (Tube preamp/compressor/EQ) XLR out into channel 2 of my Line 6 UX8 interface with the gain all the way down, USB out into Cubase on my iMac. For some reason, the signal was all distorted. Here is a chunk of the vocal track:https://www.dropbox.com/s/q…
I have huge problem with recording from my Sandisk Sansa Clip+ [with rockbox]. I set MP3, 320kbps,48KHz. I can't re-record this. Does anybody know what should I do to restore this record?

The bass comes in at 0:35
I was hopeing to achieve this sound with something like NI Massive, but I am now even wondering if it is possible,
I was just wondering.. in relation to distorted guitars .. I always avoid compression as much as I can but lately even though I am recording with a valve amp and everything sounds wonderful solo it lacks that cutting edge to really push through properly.. so ..
1) Would you recommend using compression to punch it up a little ?
2) Do you EVER really tend to use compression on distorted rock guitar.
I do however return with a question about distorted guitars.
The sound of the instrument will sound fine while actually recording the track, but when it is played back it is terribly messed up.
