I recently bought direct injection box BSS AR-133 as I heard that it is very good for bass recording. But now I am confused as I don't know how to connect it to my soundcard which has only RCA connector. BSS AR-133 has only XLR output and needs to be fed via phantom power or 9 V battery. However my M-Audio Audiophile 2496 does not have XLR connectors - it has only RCA analog inputs. What should I do now? a) Take a soldering iron and make a XLR to RCA cable? (my DAW is in machine room, far away from a location where bass guitarist sits. ~7 meters from a bass guitar. I will be able to supply DI box only from 9V battery then.) b) Buy a new soundcard with phantom power supply? (too expensive for me) Now as a temporary solution I use Art Tube MP preamp to supply my BSS AR-133 with a phantom power and as XLR to "jack connector" adapter. Unfortunately Art Tube MP is a little bit noisy. Please advice. Thank you.
