Hi all, this is my first post.
Ive been using ableton for about a month now and absolutely love. Im already onto developing a particular style and would really like to incorporate my guitar playing into the production.
So far I use my Tokai Les Paul plugged into a Line 6 Guitar port straight into ableton, however it just doesn't sound good. It sounds computerised, lifeless and all round shitty.
I have done some research and people say hooking up a Mic to an Amp is the best way. Just wanted to get some insight into anyone that has experience with recording guitar. What are the best ways to record? What software should I use or what equipment should I buy?
P.S I have a marshall 150Wat valve amp + an SM58 Microphone (havent actually tried recording it yet though through the mic).
