    Good article! I'm a fan of Jack Douglas's phase EQ technique.
    Well, I'm a fan of everything Jack does!

    It's as easy as this;

    Download Reaper
    Plug your Mustang into your laptop with a USB cable
    Open Reaper and select your Mustang amp as your input device
    Record

    I recorded this last week using a Mustang II v2 (Plexi amp model), Reaper and some free VST's for the bass and drums.

    For amp recording I really just suggest a Fast Track Solo USB audio interface, the Pro Tools Express software that comes preloaded with it for mixing all recordings together and audio enhancement and recording via connecting a microphone to the USB interface via a standard XLR cable.

    I'm too thick for all this. I have a Zoom r24, two Tascam monitors, a Shure Unidyne and a Rode 3 mic. I plug my SG into a Yamaha THR 10 and record, either using the two inbuilt mics on the Zoom (which captures the room) or close mic the Yamaha and record at midget volume at 3am. When I play it back next day, it still sounds like the White album, the side with "Birthday" on it because I always put all the filth I possibly can on the sound.

    When it comes to "producing" a sound, I'm afraid I just don't do it because I don't know how. For me, the fun of having this kind of stuff in easy reach is that the record companies, producers, contracts and all that stuff are sacked, down the road, I can do it as I want to do it and that's all there is to it. So, look out world, EARACHE!

    Actually, no. I like what comes out - get a guitar, get an amp, get some stuff, record! That's IT!

    I'm thick, though. I can't be bothered with trawling through latency issues etc. For me, if it doesn't work when you plug it in, it's out the door, end of. If I did the Space Shuttle, it would crash in Mexico.
