Welcome to the first article in the Record U series – this article will teach basic techniques for recording electric guitar, with information about mic’ing guitar amps, and also recording directly into Reason with no microphones or amplifiers at all, using Reason’s built-in Line 6 Guitar Amp device. Lets get started with some general tips for recording your guitar amp!
Use a flashlight
In many combo amplifiers, the speaker is not actually in the center of the cabinet, and may not be easily visible through the grill cloth. In this case, shining a flashlight through the grill cloth should allow you to easily see the position of the speaker so you can place your microphone accurately.
