I'm trying to record with a Zoom G2.1u and no matter what I do it sounds like shit. If I record something clean or acoustic, then it sounds ok, but when I turn on some distortion it sounds like shit. I've been on internet and tried different patches but it still sounds very bad. What's wrong?

are you recording on a laptop? and are you doing just a straight line from pedal to computer line in? if so, unplug the laptop from the plug when you record, should deshitten it some, but i strongly recommend getting a mic and micing an amp, sounds far better

hmmm, then try lowering the output volume on the pedal a fair bit or lowering the gain a tad, these also affect a hell of a lot

You have no idea how long I've been messing around with the volume on the pedal, the gain and such

well im UK and i got a behringer C-1 and a Mic-100 preamp for £70 and just put it on a small stand infront of my amp a few millimetres away, experimented with its placement (best near the middle of the speaker) then use a line from the pre-amp to the line in on the computer, works a charm. just research around for mic pricings and research about other peoples experiences of mic placements. Also check out about what levels to set your tone at when micing an amp as it sounds far different from where the mic will be than where you are stood. will need more bass than it seems by your ear.
