^That

And make sure you read what labels want in submissions. Some don't even take unsolicited ones, so just make sure you're giving them what they want, how they want it.

One thing that might help is 'less is more.' I find that when I track heavy guitars, I use less distortion than I would think. I usually find the tone I want live, then dial back the distortion...

Awesome comparison!

Personally, it's between the UA710 Full Tube and the Daking on vocals for me. The Daking is the winner for bass, imo.

UA710 seems to have more air and presence to it that I...

Obviously, that's not his budget, and even if it was, I wouldn't suggest that. Running a C-800g through a ULN-2 would make me die on the inside.

I second a dynamic mic (preferably two in a stereo technique). Condensers might be too sensitive to record something like a live rehearsal.

Honestly, if it's too much of a hassle to move one mic around for an hour until you find the sound you want from your amp, then just use VSTs.

Holy necro Batman!

It's definitely worth it to purchase a better interface, imo. Check the intro to recording thread. It should have some good recommendations for interfaces.

If your pedal is on channel one, then yes, PT output should be one.

You do need the track to play, otherwise PT will not be sending out the information to your pedal.

I've got a Scarlett 18i20, Tascam US 1800 and a Saffire Pro 40. I'll probably do some reamps through them. I also have an ISA 2 pre that I might run through them as well.

Craigslist can be a wonderful thing. When I was in Nashville, I found so many awesome audio deals on CL. Now that I'm in DC, it's pretty rare, which kinda sucks.

Great find!

I don't think he's using a mic, since he listed an amp sim.

Try using a thinner pick like Spambot said, or try adjusting the amp settings in Guitar rig.
