My band is recording in my basement, we have done it before for out own amusment, but now it is kinda important because we have a producer who is looking at fronting the money for us to put out a high quality five to six track demo. I have never tried to record while using a distortion pedal before. I have always sent in a line from the "line out" on the back of my amp, and it comes out nice and clean. Yet today, I used my distortion pedal, and none of the "fuzz" came through on the recording, I don't think it is the mixer, it is digital and all that jazz (my guitar players, who has no shortage of cash) So what should I do? The recordings sound good, but the distortion would help during certain hits in certain songs since we have a lone guitar player.
