Fellas, How's things? I've got an M-Audio 1814 which has 2 active inputs and about 8 non-active. I have 4 instruments in my band that I want to record - vocals, guitar, bass and v-drums. My v-drums and an active bass go through the non-active inputs and the vocals go through one of the active inputs - they all sound fine. The guitar usually gets recorded by micing up an amp and going through the second active input. However, I've been reading a bit about DI boxes and wondered if they would allow me to take away the need for micing up an amp. There are cases where I would like to keep everything as quite as possible and wondered if anyone could give me their pearls of wisdom on using a DI box and whether it goes: Guitar > DI Box > M Audio 1814 > computer or Guitar > Amp > DI Box > M Audio 1814 > computer Thanks in advance.
