I've been mooching off of peoples knowledge on this site for a while but
i decided to make a contribution! So anyway I got a great idea
for recording. I as a guitarist needed a cheep way to record and filter out
background noise. So i was thinking of ways to deaden outside sound, i tried many.
But i tried wrapping my mic and headphones in blanket! (example in profile)
steps:
1. setup guitar and amp (duh)
2. plug headphones into the amp
3. plug mic into computer and setup recording software
4. lay headphones and mic on blanket so mic picksup the hreadphones sound
5. wrap it up with blanket
6. if u used a thick enough blanket it deadens all out side noise

please post any comments and questions! ROCK ON

NOTE: in my example mp3 my guitar buzzes a little but it didnt pickup outside noise
i was actualy talking to my brother while recording

I record straight trough my Zoom G2.1U so I don't have any problems with outside noise.

I give you a suggestion...

Why don't you buy plug-in software that emulates amps and fx pedal like native instruments "guitar rig" or the line 6 tone port?

With this you don't have any background noise and complicated recording "schemes" like you presented... Believe me... this the best advice you can have. And it is cheap, you don't need to buy mics and that stuff.

just record it trought your mic and then use adobe audition to remove the noise
A hero of war, Yeah that's what I'll be

LOLOLOL why not just plug a cable directly from the AMP into your PC :S otherwise, I guess you will get a pretty crappy sound...

well the way i did it i didnt have to spend any money and works so ill stick with unless i have to do somthing else



You had to buy a mic... and if you want professional quality in a budget, what I said is the best solution.

Honestly... I heard your recording in your profile page and the sound sucks . If you want to make better recordings follow my advice!

headphones kill the sound. it's not the guitar's natural sound when you feed it through a pair of headphones instead of the speaker. however MG speakers aren't that great though.

Umm, I can't possibly understand why you would do that, why wouldn't you just mic up the actual cabinet?

How low of volume are you guys recording your guitars at? I've never had a problem with outside noise getting into my guitar tracks because guitar amps are LOUD.
