    New to recording and not sure I have a good setup and making basic mistakes.

    I'm recording through a boss GT10B and into pro tools, two output standard leads to get stereo. Are these the best leads/should I stick with mono?

    Sansamp setup in PTools but was thinking of buying sansamp 21?

    That is pretty much it

    It records but don't feel I get the best possible sound (trying to get a Foxton type sound).
    I use either a Rick 4003 or Fender P
    I don't mind investing a bit to get a better sound.

    Thanks in advance
  2. Stick to mono. You want the bass right down the middle of the mix. Try 2 inputs of the same recording though. One clean and one mic'd speaker for fuzz. Then it's down to blending the 2. Watch out for phasing issues though.
