Personally? I take my Stratocaster>Cry Baby Waw-wah pedal>Digitech Multi-FX pedal>Marshall or Vox guitar
Marshlall or Vox amp>Berhinger 16 channel mixing board
(no way to HEAR anything yet...but we go either into a line out from the mixer>or mixer into an amp-or of course headphones like in the studio.
I also play keys and those go into>Mixer>out to amp, stereo home system, speakers..or studio wise-headphones.
I think youre wanting to hear yourself without realizing that headphones would be your single best option. And if you want...you can still go out of
the guitar system and keys system to just about anywhere.
And as far as FX you say it would need to have, Im sure you may not understand that all of that is built into your recording software. Literally
hundreds of fx and settings combos.
My strat and wah pedal goes into my Digitech pedal and right there I can choose any amp sound, and delay, echo, compression sound, eq-you name it. And
THAT hits the amp next that also has-built in fx, amp and mic sounds, delays, special guitar sounds...you name it!!
And that all goes into the mixer which has..yep..all of the above as well to combine with the OTHERS.
As to your which software to use question alone...one can always adapt right into the mic jack on your laptop and either go out again something like a
pa system you or your group has, or simply just into headphones so you can rock the night away...and nobody can hear you.
The possibilities are endless...good luck to you!
