How do you all capture the sound of an electric guitar?

Plugins? Mic’d amp? I use a plugin called Bias Amp 2 for all amp and cab simulations which I quite like (although seems to sound nicer with my tele than Les Paul). I’ve also heard really good things about a plugin called amplitube but don’t have any experience with it.. What do other people use?

Shark Sandwich (a rock instrumental homage) — how is it? Thanks.

Hi everyone,

It’s been a while since I’ve posted here — I’ve been working on some new stuff. Borrowed a friend’s 7-string, and additionally used my tele and a semi acoustic. Drums were programmed in EZDrummer, bass programmed in EZBass and strings using Logic’s studio strings.…

Bass guitar, acoustic guitar, electric guitar ONE pedal?

My question is, is it possible to find one pedal that's good for all three guitars?

DI for electric guitar

One Mic (under $200) for female vocals, acoustic guitar and electric guitar?


Hi everyone, this is my first post here.

I'm looking to purchase a single mic to record female (alto) vocals, and acoustic and clean electric guitar. My guitar amp is a Princeton Reverb. I know that I should probably get two separate mics but I don't have the space or budget for that as I live in a very small room.
