  • recording guitar

    hi,guys
    i want to record my self playing guitar, i have a sure sm57 mic in front of a speaker cab, mic then connects to a line6 hd500 ,i got the hd500 connected to a pc using the usb ports from hd500 to the pc, then using audacity program to record myself,

    at the moment the hd500 is connected to the pc using a usb cable is this right thing to do yes/no ???
    or do i connect the hd500 using the unbalanced output connections (image below) to the ear phone on the pc yes/no???

    i am using hd500 as a audio interface, do you guys thinks this is ok, or would guys recommend me use another audio interface ???

    big thanks for your time,

    Actually not familiar with any of the Line 6 Pods, but my Scarlett 2i2 connects by usb, as most interfaces do. If not FireWire. So it seems to me you've got it right.

      Try mic > HD500 mic input > USB to computer.

      What kind of computer? What DAW are you using?

          DAW = Digital Audio Workstation.
          Its recording software. Many different software makers. I use Reaper.

            Did the Line 6 come bundled with recording software? Use that.

              Make sure that, if there are drivers needed, they are installed. Then, make sure the USB of the POD is selected in your software's input menu.

                hi,Swampy
                you say you use reaper, I believe it costs $60 to buy the licence, is this a one off payment or do you have to buy a new licence every year,
                thanks for your help,

                  Is it OK? Why do you ask? Does the HD500 have an audio interface built in? Read the manual.

                  But your connection is correct though.

                  Audacity is a DAW. But if you are looking for a DAW that supports MIDI and totally free, no strings attached, I recommend Zynewave Podium. http://zynewave.com/podium-free/

                    One time.
                    You can use it for free for a limited time. Honestly, you can use it much longer for free by just clicking the "Still Evaluating" tab.

                      hi, swampy
                      you say you use a Scarlett 2i2, can you use two mic's with the Scarlett 2i2 to record a amp? I hear some guys use more then one mic when recording a amp,

                      thanks for your time,

                        It has two mic pre's in that unit so yes you can.

                        However I recommend starting with one and adding in a second one once you got a handle on mic placement etc.

                          Or maybe, never. There are many strong arguments for using a single microphone!

                              I am interested in your arguments for using one mic only. I now use 5 by the way: 2 in the front (1 for each speaker), 2 in the back (1 for each speaker), 1 ambient mic (will add another one once I get another stand), plus 1 direct.
