    recording direct

    I finally acquired an interface (firestudio project ftmfw!), and i was fucking around with recording direct, and i managed to get some decent sound

    Using only a boss compressor (turned most of the way down) and an RV5, running no modeling (mic style input on garageband), i got some acceptable quacky ass cleans like i like

    its not much, but considering the only other piece of gear available to me was a big muff, id say i did alright

    did this using the stock neck on my 540S

    (listen to the track now )

    So anyways, im on a decently tight budget here, dont have an amp, and want to start getting some recording shit thrown together, cause i havent tracked in... 4 years? Around that anyways. Im throwing together a rack over the next week or so here, so im looking for gear to stuff in it to help me out. Ive got a set of NT55s, an SM57, and a Sennheiser 977 or something to that effect (9xx with a 7 in it somewhere). Where would you start? Some sort of hideous digitech modeler a la 1-chris-loves-1-the -cock-01? i just need something to get some working tones with.

    Maybe i'll just find a way to run my muff in a weird feedback loop and call it done
