Does Jonne use a pedal ?  ??? and If yeah, than which one?
Or the sound he gets is all by the amp?
I love that sweet lead sound  :P

For all recording we use Line6 GuitarPort. The advantages way outweigh the drawbacks in relation to using mics and real amps etc for recording.

This has been a very helpful thread for me, especially mentioning Line6 GuitarPort. I'll be purchasing this right away. I'm sure it'll remedy the horrible sound I have been getting recording straight from a small amp and free microphone.

I think it's round 200 € ... or smthn
but the bad thing is that you'll need to buy extra thingies for it
like new distorsion packs, new (recording) softwares etc.
which are ~ 99 $

But I think the you get some basic pack of softwares with the port itself.
check out their page here.  ;)

When we recorded Redeemer, we had only the basic guitarport, without additional addons.

Could someone explain what Guitarport actually is? I'm confused as to what it does.

I'm just assuming here but if you get a jack-to-jack cable you directly input the guitar to the recording board, removing the need for microphones and amps
But if one day we meet together while I'm drunk, I promise you to draw a big group sex picture including a lot of forumites. :D

Exactly... It's a guitar-amp&cabinet emulator + some effects and different microphone modellers...

We've up until now only used the basic GuitarPort, but we've configured our own presets instead of using the default ones.
We bought the "METAL" addon pack for the GuitarPort just a few days ago... As soon as we've tested it out seriously I can
always return here with some info on how we think it works...

But from our experience so far I can honestly say the guitarport simply makes recording guitars a pure joy because of its
simplicity. And I'd like to remind you people that we've tried the Behringer V-Amp2 as well, and would NOT recommend anyone
getting that.

So, does that mean if i ever bought one of these, I could hook a guitar up to it and plug this into a computer? Or is it more complex than that? *Newb*

Ignore that, i looked into it and solved my stupid questions. :P
What i can't seem to find is how the played music can be recorded?

Not sure if it's changed by the latest drivers or not (they included a VST plug), but up until this point we've simply hooked the line-out from the GuitarPort into our M-Audio soundcard inputs and recorded. So you recorded it like anything, into your soundcard, so you'll want a soundcard with good A/D-converter(s) (that means you get a good input signal).

I think if you buy a TonePort, that one is a combined GuitarPort and soundcard, if you don't already have a good soundcard. I haven't tried TonePort myself but I think it works like I just claimed, heheh... :)
