so I've decided that if im gonna keep going and want a sound that ill actually be happy with ill have to send my recordings to a pro for mixing and mastering. anyway, i cant afford studio time but im gonna run a di track for reamping and a mic for a live sound as well. my question is when i say fuck up a riff and need to start the riff again will i need to align the di track with the live track THEN cut or is it ok just to cut it at the end of the measure? im just worried if i do that ill lose too much of the di tracks for reamping after having to parts over a few times due to fuck ups... any advice? im using cubase if that helps. ive been told the lost would be unnoticable but i want my next release to sound excellent but im a bit worried about screwing up the di recordings since its my first time trying this

honestly it's better to just practice till you can play it all the way through cleanly with minimal to zero cuts. But I guess some people record like that.

I actually Agree but sometimes the perfectionist in me can't help it. But cuts do happen and I just want to make sure I'm not losing anything. That first track I lay down is usually heavily monitored but afterwards it's usually like 1 -3 cuts tops. I'm supposing as well a professional at this shit will be able to fix most things even with an occasional flub here or there. I just don't want to waste money because I fucked something up.

Just record the DI track first until you are satisfied with how your DI track sounds, then reamp it or let the producer reamp it for you.
Recording a miced track at the same time as the DI track is a little redundant.

If you want the best quality, you will want to record riff-by-riff and take the song in chunks. It will be up to you as to how big or small the chunks should be, but when you play, your performance should be as tight and clean as possible. There is zero shame in taking the song riff-by-riff. There is shame, however, in just copying and pasting guitar parts. Record every single part yourself and get the best take possible.

From there you can do small crossfades between each riff and they will blend together.

I just posted this in another thread, but I have an article and a 3+ hour Udemy course talking specifically about how to get started recording metal guitars. You can read my article on my site here and the Udemy course is here. I made a 70% coupon so you can pick it up for $15. I will be adding a video this month to that course that deals specifically with this question and how to dual and quad track guitars. Let me know if you have any questions.
