I am a jazz guitarist and I've been playing for almost 30 years but I am completely new to home recording. Basically, I want to record solo jazz guitar pieces on my computer and then upload them to a Web site. I need advice on a good interface between my guitar and the computer. Some suggestions that I've had at the Line 6 TonePort UX2, the M-Audio Firewire 410, and even a cable that goes directly from the guitar to the USB port called a Lightsnake.
I want to get high-quality sound but don't really have lot's of time to spend on a learning curve with complicated software. Any suggestions? Many thanks in advance. Jack
Hey jduffy 56,
I recommend Adobe Audition for recording. It's really easy and intuitive to record single tracks. I haven't seen it since Adobe bought it, but I assume it's still basically the same program. Something else possible with guitars and computers is that you can run VST effects in realtime if you have a decent sound card, using many sequencers, so soft guitar pedals.
