The much mentioned American Sound pedal is pretty damn fine, but, mix the AS with a good D.I into decent pre-amps and away you go. In the usual way of recommending what you use, I've had some really good results ( the playing?, perhaps less so ) with my Trio+ sending its bass and drums via an active D.I into a basic valve interface ( think Behringer UltraGain MIC 100/ART Tube MP type ) then into a Behringer Q802USB mixer/interface. The guitar signal goes via the Trio+ and includes a few pedals plus the Joyo AS into an active D.I with cab emulation, into another basic valve interface --> Q802USB All that lot winds up in Audacity. It sounds complex, but isn't, and with canny second hand buying, comes in at very little coin. The AS sounds OK direct into the mixer. The AS sounds very good via the D.I. The AS sounds -spectacular- via the D.I and mic pre-amp. Silent ( aside from string clang ) practice is a three dimensional joy. My headphones coming alive. Floor mount multi-FX units with a USB connector make for easy recording too. If you don't have the USB capability and want to use an interface, strongly consider a D.I of some description rather than going direct to the interface. It may be cognitive bias on my part, but whenever a D.I is used into a mixer or interface compared to direct to interface, it just sounds a whole step better to me. Maybe the transformer is lubing the sound with mojo extract If you do buy a valve pre-amp along the lines of the Behringer or ART, replace the stock valve with a 12AU7. It makes a heck of a pleasant difference.
