So I have an electric guitar and a cable that connects from the guitar to my computer via USB.
It works fine, I can strum and my computer registers the noise and audacity can record it.
What I need help with is that it more or less sounds like an acoustic guitar and I’m not sure
what I need to do to get it to sound like an electric guitar. I’ve tried installing plugins
for it but I can’t find the plugins. I also installed something called VST bridge based on
a youtube tutorials instruction, but still nothing.
I’m pretty new to…basically everything. So right now all I have is an electric guitar,
a computer, the cord that connects them, and audacity.
The amp I got that came with my guitar is this tiny thing that has no method to connect it
to my computer so I was trying to use the computer as an amp.
Any info on how to do this all properly would be appreciated.
Well the first guide said “If you’re using a guitar to USB then skip this” and I can get it to record fine all ready over usb.
The 2nd one was about installing VSTs and using the VST bridge which I all ready have the VST bridge but
the one electric guitar effect I found doesn’t show up even with all the scanning and placing it in the plugins
with the box checked like it said.
Are there other electric guitar plugins I can try? I use the wiki to find plugins but none of them were
obvious as to if I needed them.
