    I don't think we've discussed what a lot of people here use for recording, so if you do any recording then post your recording setup! I probably have the most basic setup there is as far as recording. Guitar --> Floor Processor --> Computer Sound Card, and I record with an old-ass version of Sonar.

    Also, if you have a live setup let's hear about it. One of my buddy's band uses an ipod to control the click and the samples, while another uses laptops and midi controllers, and another one uses a straight up CD player (which skips sometimes I've heard). I was contemplating the whole laptop/midi controller idea, but if there is a better way to *not* bring an extra $1,000 of gear to a club then I'm all ears! :cool:

    For Recording I run my guitar to an NS2 into my VHT Pittbull into a modified Randall ISO Cab into a Roland VS2480. If I'm just writing or demoing stuff I'll use a POD XT.

    Live I use guitar(usually an RG w/EMGs) into a TS9 and an NS2 into the VHT. I have a Marshall 412 with 75 watt celestions.

    Recording setup:
    Either my ibanez frank gambale model or my 1527. 7 string---Into a Powerball with a t.c. electronics g-force in the loop into a standard 4x12 engl cab. This is recorded with a sm57 mic wich goes into an avalon mic pre that goes into a recording interface and then into my computer. I use Cubase xs for recording and cutting.

    Live rig: Same guitars into same amp with same effects in loop into same cab, only thing is that i use a behringer fcb1010 midi floorboard wich is set up in a special way with an engl midi interface so that my behringer board both controls the amp and effects and switches patches on both at the same time( Powerball doesn't have patches of course but i mean amp channel switchhing, open focused etc.)
