My First Amp is my Mac

Good news.

I now have an amp.

My amp even records my guitar playing, way better than my webcam recorded my acoustic guitar.

Yeah ---- a cable arrived today. I just plugged it into my mac, set the settings, turned on the application, set the settings again, and away I went.

It's not very loud though. But I think my parents will be OK with that.


So::: yeah, my acoustic guitar recordings from my webcam were not nearly as good as the recordings from my electric guitar through a cable on my amp. This is so special.


And I also received a guitar stand today. Now I don't have to worry about my Squier falling over. Yay.



You might wonder why I'd even want a real amp if I can use my Mac as an amp ---- well, setting up the mac as an amp is tedious enough that I'd want something that I can just plug and play with. That's why.


Anyway, just thought I'd share the good news. My Mac may be an amp now --- but it's more of a recording machine than an amplifier.


OK --- For some reason I actually feel kind of unfulfilled right now, like this is actually kind of a letdown.


It's all good ------- but it's just not a real amp. But yeah. Hmmm.


You'd think I'd be feeling better about this now. I still feel "good" ----- but it's not a strong good. It's kind of a "meh" actually.


So::: just got to look into a new amp is all. A real amp.
