Use a Low-Latency card and Cubase SX
Authored by: techmission on Dec 16, '03 02:21:45PM

As an extension to this hint, and a poor guitar player, i found the sound quality and latency of the builti-in audio card to be unacceptable. I have a Gibson Les Paul and the output of those wonderful pickups easily overloads the audio input. Picking up a (not too expensive) audio card with switchable gain and low-latency is certainly advised. Try M-Audio.com for some great sounding yet inexpensive cards.

now for the hint:

For those of you who use Cubase SX, open it up, make a new document and set am audio channel to monitor (ie playthrough) the channel you have the guitar plugged into. Notice you can use VST plugins in real time (or very close to it) and there is a wide variety of tube/amp emulators and effects available!! Just as fun as the old days of stomp-boxes but with the convenience of being able to save patches.

Same goes for bass guitar players or any electric instrument

As a final note, watch your levels! computer or stereo speakers aren't meant to be used this way and you can damage them if you aren't careful!
