Best practise for setting up a home studio

By | July 12, 2018

I'm a guitarist and I'm looking for a better home studio setup. When I'm playing my guitar I go either directly in my amplifier or into my audio interface.

When I go directly in my audio interface I just record a dry signal and use a VST for monitoring a sound of choice. This is monitored through my amplifier cabinet.

When I go directly in my amp I either do it just for jamming or I set up a mic and connect that to my audio interface. This is monitored through my studio speakers.

What's the best way I can improve this? I hoped I could connect my guitar to only one input and then I could have a button whether to go directly in my amp or just to record.
