hi, how's this for a cheap live-off-the-floor recording technique/ i'm trying to record my band by plugging everyone into our mixing board and capturing the output on my usb interface into my laptop. I also have an output to a 4 channel headphone amp/splitter ..so the Foh/monitor speakers are turned off. The guitars are direct in to the board, drums, vocals are micd into the board.. so far so good, sound is clean, separated and balanced. my one problem - getting the bass to work through a DI box.. tried but got nothing.. just a very faint noisy signal. Now i did use this Di box years ago and it worked really well.. But I can't remember how I did it. Ithought it was just plug 1/4: cable from bass into di box input.. and di box output cable into mixer...Do you have to go thru the amp first? ie. bass to amp to Di to mixer? I thought Di meant direct in.. I suppose it could be; - a bad cable - unlikely as its a new hi-quality shielded cable - a bad Di box - it's an old Korg Toneworks - I have another box to try which is made for bass - a Zoom bass effects box. which is probably much better quality than the Korg box. The manual shows connection as ; bass to box to amp.. can this be used as Di box/ i.e, bass to box to mixer? (it is an 8 channel powered mixer/amp ) I'm not a bass player or a Di box expert so any insight is much appreciated, Thanks!
