I hate everything about recording. I hate fiddling with software. I hate sitting at a computer. I hate getting my recorded tone as good as the live tone with no fucking digital noise or fizz on top. I fucking hate recording.
But I want to be productive. So, from the ground up what are the simplest, easiest, and most natural feeling ways to record guitars and program drums. I am not a recording engineer, and I never intend to be one so I don't need fancy shit, just good listenable results primarily for my own listening.
If anybody else on here hates recording as much as I do, chime in. I'd like to hear what you guys are using.
You going direct or mic? I would grab a lil presonus or something similar 2xlr input deal.
Run it into reaper into some good headphones or decent neutral pc speakers.
