I'm using POD HD300 as effects board and no other analog pedals.
Also Fostex MKII reference monitors together with a PC.
My Gain is set around 25% (I know this is too low but I do quad-tracking + use IRs)
Thanks a lot!!
For shredding & a bit more technical solos that involves lots of string skipping&legato etc in the higher regions, I typically use neck. This gives more "definition" and a smoother/creamy, even sound on higher speeds.

While recording at home, I observed that the pickups pick too much noise like fizz, hum, hiss and so... probably related to grounding issues.
That's why I heavily use noise reduction (NOT NOISE GATE!) with a setting...
Thanks for the suggestions! :yesway:
Yep! I'm going to leave the gorund to sounds instead of words from now on. :lol: Too much talking and I better get my lazy a** up and do some experimental recordings so that you and the others can recommend/advise in a more effective way.

Thanks a lot for taking your time and answering. Indeed most of those choices are a matter of taste as you've also mentioned within your replies.
I'm not used to use compression with distorted guitars either,
can you also have a look at the 6th question that I've added...
Thank you for fast response. I'm not linked to any bands for now on and it completely depends on my choices. I have fair idea of the mixing process and already achieved some good results with hearable instruments sitting on their respective seats in EQ spectrum.
Actually I use...
This is the first time ever I'm posting on this forum. I've been playing guitar for 4,5 years.
I've played in several live shows and in the studio. I could manage to get decent tones for a live performance just instinctively.
Now I'm focused more on recording my own stuff.
