How to get the best signal

Discussion in 'Recording' started by whocareswhoitis, Feb 2, 2009.

  1. Hi, I've been recording bass through my 30-watt bass amps direct out (1/4" jack) to my sound cards line in (3.5mm jack). With pretty good results. I've heard that this is not the best way though?
    I have a DI XLR out from my bigger trace elliott amp, would connecting to my sound card this way improve my signal any? and how would I connect up this way? Use a standard microphone lead (XLR to 1/4" mono jack) or a XLR to 1/4" stereo Jack? Plus a 1/4" to 3.5mm adaptor of course to connect to the cards line in. Thank you for any help.

    Having a better interface (soundcard) would help more than a DI will.
