Recording on the cheap
Well, I've decided to get some semi-decent recording gear so I can make better quality recordings. I've done some asking on another forum, and was recommended some sort of DI unit (a la POD).
I'm just looking for any more recommendations. So far the choices are sitting at:
V-AMP 2 £70-80ish
POD 2.0 £109
POD XT £200 ish
The PODXT is too expensive new, second hand may be an option. The V-AMP is cheap, and (from what I've read on various forums) is actually pretty good, but I've heard some bad things about the sampling rate etc, and I'm not sure about them.
Mic'ing my amp isn't an option, as my amp is crap, and I do most of my playing through headphones anyway. I would prefer to go down the mic'd up amp route, but it would cost too much money and wouldn't really be feasible, so this seems to be my only option.
Does anyone have any other recommendations, around the £100 mark, of what I could get, or opinions on which of the above are best to get.
Any soundclips recorded with anything mentioned so far, or any reasonably priced alternatives would be much appreciated.
