You have a bunch of choices if you want to record the one Mic while playing live with others over the mixer. 1) Mic to Scarlett, Line out to Mixer: plug the Mic via XLR in the Scarlett, gain it there (with the high-quality preamp). Important: activate the Direct Monitor switch which sends the gained input with nearly no latency to the outputs. This is ...

Don't get down on yourself about it, it's incredibly common. Like Dom said, metronomes are your best friend. My favorite way to practice a song: set the metronome to whatever pace you can play the whole song without stopping and with minimal mistakes. Then, every day, increase the metronome speed by 1bpm until you eventually get to the speed that the song is ...

Playing too fast is a sign that you are focusing on the notes rather than the music. That is your motor reflexes are taking over the performance rather than your listening and interpreting head. As others mentioned, adrenaline might speed up your "flow". Try breaking up its effect by being comfortably below your limits and varying the tempo consciously, ...

It's most likely just a side effect of the adrenaline you get when performing, similarly to how someone will speak faster if they are nervous. It's a very common phenomenon and most musicians don't notice when it happens. Practicing with a metronome in general will make sure you start and consistently stay at the desired tempo. When performing you're most ...

If your amp has a line-out, then plugging this into the line-in of your audio interface will work. You can also use a headphone socket as a "poor man's line-out", and this will work almost as well. Adjust the headphone volume to set levels. And, an "FX out" is effectively a line-out. Let's think about what this means. What you think of as an "amp" is ...

Todd is right a mic is best, your vocal mic on the grill, straight at the speaker is pretty foolproof. If you are talking about using it like an effects loop, forget it. The input impedance is wrong, the output level is going to be wrong even if it has an XLR output. Any computer will produce vastly better results with free or stock plug ins. And all guitar ...

You have a few questions in there, which is not really the best way to structure questions on Stack Exchange. I'll cover off your main one, and you may wish to ask the others separately: For any reasonable quality audio work, get a separate sound card / interface. It sounds like the main part of your problem is from incorrect levels - ie your pedal may not ...

Pressing the Alt Key and hovering the mouse over an event enables the scissor. Then it depends whether you have the "snap" button on and what type of snap (events, bars etc.) is activated. If you deactivate the snap mode, you should be able to freely cut it anywhere. Another option is to drag the event beginning via the bottom left corner to the right to ...

Perhaps I am missing something obvious, and I am talking from memory, but in order to cut accurately, you need to change the tempo counting bar measure type in the top bar. If I remember ok, you can specify different units like beats, seconds, edges or bars. There is an option that allows you to cut by fractions of second. Even that is not 100% millimetric, ...

The makemusic forums are great but you may need to have some familiarity to start with before they make a lot of sense. I would recommend the Finale: a Trailblazer Guide series by Mark Johnson. Thorough and step-by-step.
