    Hey guys i got another ?

    so i am recording a keyboard on a my multi-track recorder.
    would you guys recommend i mic the keyboard coming from an amp
    or directly input it into the recorder?
    i am using a shuresm57 for the micing and a boss br-8 as the recorder

    The subject line is kind of misleading, but to answer your question -

    Unless the amp gives the keyboard a character you especially like, I'd plug the keyboard directly into the recorder. It would eliminate a lot of variables and give you the most consistent results. That's particularly useful if you have to go back and fix a part later.

    Good luck.
