This is probably a dumb question so sorry if it is!
I know I should probably just be using headphones whilst jamming along to tracks with my e guitar going into my interface and then playing via a virtual amp plugin...but...I'm not a big fan of using headphones...I like to monitor via speakers.
What I've noticed is that my e guitar channel recordings - i.e. my attempt to record JUST the guitar signal are affected by the noise from the speakers at very low volumes. I can EQ it out but then I feel as though I lose high end on the guitar track recordings. I'm assuming its the beats from the speakers vibrating the guitar strings meaning there is a faint impact of that on the final recording?
Either that or I'm doing something wrong? Should I just simply stop being a fool and record in/jam with headphones on to minimise that or should I have some kind of noise gate on the amp simulator so it doesn't happen?
Is this a common issue?! By default I didn't think I'd have to deal with that issue as in my mind there shouldn't be bleed but perhaps it's something to do with my guitar pick ups or something...my guitar is quite shit.
Anyway, hope you're all well. Really appreciate advice.
