I picked up a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 interface yesterday. Initially, my plan is to record myself playing with backing tracks in order to hear how terrible I really am in order to improve. I also have a bad habit of learning a song and promptly forgetting it, so I'd like record and archive them as well. I installed several amp sims (Bias FX demo, Guitar Rig 5, Amplitube, Tonelib GFX), and a few other free VST plugins. I'm using Reaper rather than the lite versions of Pro Tools included with the interface. I've figured out how to add a backing track and create a track and pull up the amp vst plugins to play with. Should I stick with Reaper or try something else? Currently, I have my PC speakers hooked up to the headphone out of the 2i2, but I'm planning on order a pair of Presonus Eris E3.5 monitors. Knowing this can be a very expensive rabbit hole to head down are there any essential free tools or plugins I should grab? Other suggestions or tips?
