Hey, Guitarists—You don’t need a direct box for
your studio just to make your bass player or keyboardist happy.
You can employ that little jewel to lay down some fabulously
clean guitar parts. Get all funky with some shimmering riffs. Add
some sparkling textures to a phalanx of distorted fury. Evoke
jazz-like cool with a stout, spotless neck-pickup tone, or go for
an Ennio Morricone vibe with a resonant, reverb-washed melody.
All you need to do is envision a cool clean part, plug into
the direct box, and play. You could also plug into your audio
interface and select a clean guitar model or no processing at
all, but I dig the subtle, yet very robust sounds produced when
you route a good direct box directly to a DAW. As we are going
for sanity glory here, I recommend adding no more signal processing
to your pristine guitar tone. Stay away from EQ, compression,
and other effects (unless you are exploring ambient
textures), and rock like Mr. Clean.
