When I purchased everything for my simple home recording setup I bought a monitor. All I am doing is recording myself playing electric guitar along with backing tracks to put on soundcloud or youtube. I have not used the monitor yet so kinda confused as to why I bought it now. When I playback and listen to my work I use the laptops internal speakers because that is what anyone listening to it on soundcloud or youtube most likely will do and I want to hear how it will sound to them. Am I missing something about the purpose of the monitor. I don't mike it because I have a guitar speaker cabinet for that. Thinking I should sell the monitor but don't want to do something I will regret in the future. Thanks to those who help me to understand this newbie question.
