Joyo Ultimate Drive (as recorded unprofessionally by me)

Recently I accepted a challenge—foolishly most likely—set by a couple of my fellow guitar addicted Twitter friends (let’s call them Peter and the Baron). The challenge was to produce a video that showcased one of the guitar pedals we owned. We had a finite time to produce the video as well. The challenge was flawed from the start. It was flawed because I realised after accepting the challenge that I’d never miked an amp before. Plus I don’t have a great YouTube presence. That’s primarily because I have no idea how to edit video properly. Oh, I’m also not a confident guitar player/sharer. Apart from that though, the challenge was easy!

Having said all of that. I’d do it again. Joyo Ultimate Drive (as recorded unprofessionally by me)

Steinberg UR22—my chosen audio interface

Almost a month ago I wrote an article suggesting there were too many audio interface options out there for inexperienced people like me to choose from. How can you expect to know which option is the right one for your needs? How do you separate the lesser options from those that are so superior you find yourself screaming “Shutup and take my money!”? I did the only thing I could. I asked the Interweb to provide me with answers. And provide it did. I ended up buying the Steinberg UR22. Surprisingly (perhaps) it wasn’t even in my original list of options!
