I have a peavey vypyr and I would like to record it via usb, but i cant find a way to hear what i play as i play it. Theres way too much lag to enable monitoring in REAPER, so thats out the window. Does anyone know of a way to get the amp to make sound from its speakers while also recording into the computer? Or any other way to allow me to hear what i record as i play it?
I usually plug a pair of headphones into the headphone jack of the amp and use that to hear myself while I'm recording.
headphone jacks would be the winner, you can run headphone jacks out to computer speakers, or a mixer if you want to have more control over the mix. i keep a little 100 dollar, 5 channel behringer around for such needs.
punk isn't dead, it's always smelled that way.
