Whats the cheapest way to record?
Is irig good?
I still need to have a good amp to record well right?
Cheapest? If you have an iphone get irig and garageband app. No amp needed.

"Anybody can play. The note is only 20 percent. The attitude of the motherfucker who plays it is 80 percent." -- Miles Davis

Find the cheapest mulitfx with USB.


I have a Digitech RP355 and it came with a Cubase LE4. Not the best multi FX and not the cheapest but gets the job done.

I'd say the cheapest ways to record independently would be as follows:

- Put a tape recorder in your room while you play through your rig. (lol)

Given you have a computer and decent music software I'd say to go one of these directions

- Find a mic suited to what you're trying to record, short mic stand, and something like the Presonus Audiobox. Just mic your rig directly and fiddle with the mic placement, volume, etc

- Try looking into Line 6 PODs / Eleven Rack / Axe Fx to record directly with a wide range of choices in digital models of amps, cabs, pedals, etc
