Alan, the sound quality of your last videos seems good enough to me.
Gabriel, your contribution would be really appreciated.
Thank you for your interest everyone!

@Ids Before I had a sound card I pluged my guitar into a microphone jack and then I opened bias and I recorded the sound with a “sound recorder” that comes with windows. Quality is ok but it’s no where near the quality you get from a sound card. So I guess you could get away with it but the best option is the sound card.

Yes, sound card or audio interface are the same thing.
Yeah that might be a better option because there are a lot of free amp emulators that you can test out and record with your interface so you get the idea how it works.

Awaiting some other volunteers, I began composing the backing track. I guess I’ll let the time to some other people to see the post, and join in. Not sure how much time I’ll wait, between a few days and a week, something like that, I’m not in a rush at all.

So now I need some advice on which interface to get. I’m thinking either this one https://m.thomann.de/nl/focusrite_scarlett_2i2_2nd_gen.htm?o=11&search=1539613979 or this one https://m.thomann.de/nl/focusrite_scarlett_solo_2nd_gen.htm any opinions?

I would recommend the solo as you are only recording guitar

Both are great, 2i2 obviously has an extra input and probably some adjustements but both will work just fine. If you want to record 2 guitars at the same time for example with a friend then get 2i2 but if not solo will do you just fine. Go on youtube, there are probably some comparisons between the two. But make sure you have Windows and not Mac, if I’m not mistaking you have Mac right? Mac can’t have an USB interface, it needs a fireware interface. Google this :usb vs fireware interfaces” to understand whats it all about. I would post you links but I can’t right now.

According I can use them on my MacBook pro https://support.focusrite.com/hc/en-gb/articles/115002523165-Are-Focusrite-USB-interfaces-Plug-and-Play-on-Mac-
I do have USB ports in my Mac so should work right?

Alright Dustin.
Please keep in mind that when the time comes, I will need your video with JUST your solo, and WITHOUT the backing track playing in the background. It’ll be much easier for me when I’ll mix all videos. If you’re using an interface it will be easy to only put your solo track on your video, but if you’re using a Zoom for instance, please make sure the only thing that it’s recording is your guitar playing, and not the backing track. Use headphones to hear the backing track while you’re playing. But I will remind you that later, no worries
