Headphones or speakers for recording guitar on PC

Recommended Posts

I mic my amp while recording to my PC using Audacity.

At times I will use two Alesis monitors.

Just depends on the sound I am after.

I have never used headphones, mainly because I don't have any........

I am an old guy too. We are generally better looking.:escape:

Thanks guys!!

To add-I didn't want to have an endless loop of my guitar coming from the monitors-into the pick ups and have some weird noises going on. I tried it both ways-I don't like using head phones!!

Headphones if recording guitar/amp with a mic - to keep the recording as clean as possible (the recording will pick up backing track or worse induce feedback from the mic).

I prefer speakers PA or monitors when recording DI or line out from an amp.

Thanks OldG!!

I'm just using some amp sims-after going through a cheap audio interface-no mics yet!! I know these computer speakers are a sorry example of the sound-BUT workin' with what I got!!

a little late .... but ....

OldG's the man and righteous in every way.... But I prefer cans for the isolation. The trick is getting the right cans to do the job. Nice studio grade flat cans. My choice? AT MF40s. But a good set of monitors is probably the best way to go.

Hey Carol .... sorry ... that should have been ATH :)

Excellent in every way. If there is a shop near you where you can test them out, you will never hear music the same way. :)

(edit) ... and while they may look big, they are so comfortable I can wear these all day and not get ear fatigue. I've had these a few years and have replaced the ear surround padding once. Not because the padding failed but because the black covering became worn from all the use.
