    Here's a quick little clip I recorded this afternoon, more as a test of some new hardware I got for my laptop than anything else. Ash/maple strat on left- deluxe Reverb- SM57 Beta mic-decent mic pre- firewire converter-laptop running 'Reamer' freeware multitrack software. Ash/maple tele- Vox comes in on right towards end. Cool little vibe, plenty of clams!

    Hi,

    Sounded very nice. Very Fenderish.

    What mic pre and fire wire converter did you use?

    Cheers,

    It was an older 2 channel pre I've had for some time, Studio Technologies 'Mic PreEminence'. Simple, clean, no frills kind of solid state rack mount piece. The converter was a $79 Behringer 2 channel FCA202 that I just got, pretty impressive so far. I used to do a lot of fairly elaborate home studio work, first on ADAT's and then on a PC DAW. This is my first attempt at setting up a very simple, stripped down recording rig using my laptop and so far it's working out well.

    Sweet sound!
    Lovely highs and a very nice twang.
