Hi, I’m very new to home recording. I have attached my computer specs, in-case, these are needed. I’m using a Focusrite Scarlett Solo(3rd Gen) audio interface. I will have to admit, at this time, I have a Vintage Guitar, which is cheap & I’m planning to get a good guitar, in the future.
I’m looking to spend around £500 & wondered if anyone had any recommendations, for a decent heavy sound? I have also looked into stuff, like BISA FX2, though use Guitar Rig 5 at moment. When I see the advert for BIAS FX 2, it shows him playing on a Focusrite, though think it is Scralett 2i2 & the sound is amazing.
I have downloaded the trial & it sounds nothing like the advert. When I record anything, with distortion, it just doesn’t sound professional or clear. Would this be down to my computer as it, isn’t really modern, in tech. Would this be the fact, I have a cheap guitar, or the Audio Interface as it’s not in the £600-£800 mark? I understand that mastering is really important & this is something I will need to learn over time.
I just don’t get why the sound of my guitar isn’t good & I have even added E.Q’s built into Cubase to try and make things sound better. Any help & advice would be appreciated & any info on tech would be great. I have tried researching online & it’s just difficult to know what I really need. Many thanks.
