I started doing youtube recordings of a few pieces recently, and someone told me that the sound doesn´t do my playing justice. Although I thought otherwise, it would probably be wise to improve it, since I aim to record some original pieces and/or arrangements I've been working on. I don´t really know If I'm allowed to show you my recordings yet (It´s only my second post), but I thought I could just give you a short overview of my recording situation. It would certainly be nice to have the best sound i can get (by redcording off of my living room, of course
Right know I'm using two T.Bone Sc400 Microfones. Those are large diaphragm supercardioid microfones. I think they are mostly made for vocal recording.

As an audio interface, i use a Line 6 POD UX2. I bought it way back when my focus was more on electric guitar. It was specially designed for electric guitarists. I don´t believe changing the interface would improve the sound greatly, though.

I place the microfones about 40 centimeters away from the guitar, a bit to the front of my camera, so they can´t be seen. I aim one of them to a spot directly under the bridge and the other one to about the 12th to 10th fret. I record with cubase, where I also apply equalizers (maybe I´m doing that wrong...?). I also put in just a tiny bit of reverb, to get a wider sound.
Should i buy different microfones, that are made more specifically for acoustic guitars? Or am I just placing the microfones badly...? Maybe it´s the equalizers...?
I´d be grateful for any advice. If I´m allowed to, i could also put in one of my videos. I just didn´t already make a mistake in my second post (may also be my first! Don´t really know if the introductory post counts...).
Thanks in advance,
