My set up is as follows : Fender Tele --> Zoom G3XN --> Blackstar ID Core 10 --> Behringer Dynamic Mic (1 inch away from speaker) --> Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 (Line Setting) --> Garageband.
The tone from my amp sounds good and completely to my liking. But the audio signal that is captured in Garageband sounds muffled and unclear. It requires a lot of EQ-ing in Garageband to get a half-decent tone.
I cannot understand why this is the case. Few reasons I can think of: 1) A 10 watt modeling amp is not really perfect for mic'ing up in the first place. 2) There is something wrong with the default Garageband setting when trying to record mic'ed amps.
Also, the cleaner tones record significantly better than over-driven tones.
If anyone has any experience with such a setup, please help!!
