    Hey, I just built myself a proper computer yesterday to go with my new focusrite saffire, so I can finally record properly :D I threw this together fairly quickly and am very happy with it compared with my past stuff which sounded rubbish with more work.

    Just guitar and drums so far

    I'm using a CRT monitor so I was wondering what the deal is with that, because I read it negetively affects recordings??

    Any suggestions on how to improve this mix? (I will add bass soon)

    And thank you all for all your advice and information :) I'm so happy with this interface, and I would be totally lost without this forum.

    oh mine were panned 100% L and 100% R (other than the centre guitar) so i just moved them to about 70%, which helped a lot. You could also try boosting around 6kish for presence (i dunno, just guessing)?

    EDIT: or upping the presence knob on the amp :D
