ok...my current setup for recording with my pc consists of mainly this:
Korg Toneworks AX1500G processor
6-channel 200 Watt PA
SoundBlaster LS soundcard
normal cable (no XLR cable)
i run my guitar through the processor, to the PA, then out of the PA to the line in on the sound card. im not sure how everyone else does it, this is the only way i ever knew to do it.
but i have this irritating noise problem. i normally just eliminate it with noise reduc..but sometimes thats hard. i get hiss from the PA, especially if i turn the effects up on it really high. its a pretty old board though. but could it be the cable i use? i though about getting some noiseless sheilded cable. would that eliminate some of that? i dont have any XLR plugs on the board though or phantom power or that sorta thing...
now my processor....i like it, it sounds good when i run it through an amp and all, but it sounds like crap when i record with it for some reason...that is, mainly when i use the distortion effects on it. the distortion sounds terrible when i record it with the pc. even if i dont run it through the PA and run straight in it still sounds bad to me. maybe i should get a new processor? i tried out a BOSS GT-6 and i liked it. do you think it would sound better for me as far as recording goes?
recommend me some better equipment for my setup...or just teach me how to record...
ive only gotten serious about recording in the recent months..so i honestly dont know much about studio equipment.:\ i would appreciate any opinions and help you guys could give me.
