How to record your electric guitar with two simple steps


Maybe you aren’t a rock guy/woman that wants to record electric guitar all the time ,but I’m sure that you want to record for a specific part of your song. An arpeggio part in the verse ,or even you want to enhance your instrumentation in the chorus by adding some power chords. It may seem a very complicated and difficult process ,but it isn’t. Today we are going to talk on how you can easily record your electric guitar without having any amplifiers,with only two simple steps. There are a couple of ways to record your guitar but I start with the easiest one. All you need is your guitar,a jack cable1/4 ,and your audio interface.That’s all!

The first thing you have to do is to add a mono audio track in your project.i use Cubase but it’s all about the same with every DAW you may use.

The next step is to plug your guitar in your audio interface with your jack cable.You just plug in your guitar using one of the inputs to your interface. If you have an input called Instr( from instrument) then use this one. I use for this tutorial Focusrite Scarlet 2i2. It has two inputs XLR and line in and I can use both of them as line in or for microphones. It doesn’t matter which audio interface you have. They all do the same work! Now I’m going to use my stock plug ins, to find the perfect sound I want for this specific song. I am using AmpSimulator that comes with Cubase and it does exactly what it says.It is a simulator of amplifiers ,where you can choose from a variety of preset sounds and several cabinets.

A very useful plug in for recording your electric guitar quickly and easy.You can easily edit any sound you like and save it as your preset for future recordings.
