So I'm not in a band right now and I'm saving for a proper amp.
In the meantime, I'm using Amplitube to lay down some tracks on my DAW and would like to listen to what I'm playing without using headphones like I usually do.
Current chain is guitar>interface>computer>interface>headphones.
How can I achieve a setup as close to an amp as possible? What kind of speakers? I've read proper studio monitors would be not very good for this purpose and that are more used to mixing. I've also read that I should probably connect my interface to a portable PA... So...PA, multimedia speakers or studio monitors?
I don't really know if you can get a mini PA for cheap...
Anyway, what route should I go for? Any sugestions and ideas welcomed. They really have to sound good for metal. Please leave your gear suggestions. Budget for multimedia speakers/monitors/mini pa is $300.
Thanks in advance.
The amp simulation should be coming from Amplitube. Just grab yourself a decent set of powered monitors, like those Rokits everyone likes.
