The long chapter dedicated to recording electric guitar has come to an end. That said, the articles in the coming weeks will deal with topics that could easily be integrated into it. But I made the choice to separate them because the things we will be addressing go well beyond the scope of the guitar. In fact, the end of the last installment where we talked about amp emulations encouraged me to write an article dedicated to virtual instruments. The use of a certain number of VSTis is extremely common in "home" productions. Yet the best way to approach the work with these tools is often to apply the same methods that you'd use if you were recording the actual instrument.
