so heres the deal. FINALLLLLLLLLY i have a demo! *woot* http://boomp3.com/listen/dszpkcb/casualty-alteration recorded with a bassist (high schooler... washburn bass ($1500, not sure what model) and that $400 ampeg tube amp) and me (carvin DC127 and metal muff) straight thru a computer input. my drummer programmed hydrogen. all into audacity. but heres the problem. except for the drumming, its all wicked fuzzy. this is what im doing. buying a very expensive distortion pedal ($200?) and then a reverb pedal, and probably a clean boost, and probably a wah as well, and very unlikely, but possible, a fuzz. a few loopers as well, to quickly switch between my setups. the loopers will be wicked cheap. and now i have a few questions. is there a box where i can plug the pedals in, and then plug it into the computer, for a clearer sound (ie a recording box?) it also needs to handle a mic, but im buying one that can plug into a regular headphone jack, so that probably wont be a problem, it also comes with a mic attachment. and second. would true bypass matter in that situation, running thru a computer? third, how would i plug in an EQ? i want to put a 7band eq into the mix, where would i plug it in? just at the beginning of the chain? thanks!
