How would you record my guitars with my gear?

    Im trying to figure out the best way to record my amp with this stuff...

    Fender delux 112 combo ----> At2020 mic package ---> TonePort kb37 -----> Sonar 6 PE

    Im thinking I might want to stereo mic (one on the speaker and the other off in the distance) but maybe I should just do mono tracks and separate takes?

    They will be rock guitars so heavy overdrive and clarity are a must.

    Any ideas?

    seperate mono tracks hard panned left and right..
    If you want them really thick repeat step 1

    Try one mic close to the front, about 2 inches to the left or right of dead center of the cone.

    Try the other behind the amp, it's open-back, right?

    Flip the phase if it sounds thin, or move the back mic a few inches until it fattens up.

    - Metallica's Master Of Puppets, if I remember correctly, had something like one or two guitar tracks on all the hours of the clock face, like from 9 o'clock across to 3 o'clock.

    That can be a mess, but fun to play with at the same time!

    Listen ..... then listen again ..waste a little time and record it five no ten different ways leave the recordings alone for at least one hour or a day come back and listen to all the tracks one at a time you will find the one you love and need out of your own options p.s take notes make marks dont let your condenser distort watch your gain structures
