Been a while since I have posted on the boards. It's good to be back. Today I have a question on how to record to my PC at the same or similar quality (or non-quality) level as the examples in the videos below. Normally I would not start a new thread but I just spent the last five hours searching the forums but could not find a good consensus. Please do me a huge favor and ignore who the artist is. Occasionally in the past when I or others have asked similar questions, who the artist is seems to cloud the replies. and one non-Modulus one For years I have only had the M-Audio Fast Track USB (original). I have never liked it and barely used it. Anything I recorded using it sounded either thin or way too noisy. It is time for me to try something else. My current equipment is as follows: Modulus Flea 4 w/OBP-1 and Lane Poor pickup 2001RB-II 410RBH 115RBH Line 6 Relay G90 Assortment of pedals Do I use DI or get a mic like an SM57? It would be preferable if the total cost of everything is under $1,000 and much better if under $500. I would also prefer to get whatever I need off of Amazon Prime if at all possible. I appreciate the help.
