Line 6 direct Recording Help

Hey I have a Line 6 Flextone II, which I record directly. Does anyone have experience with Line 6 direct recording? I'm in a dorm room in college so its kind of hard to record with my 57. But anyway is there anything special to recording direct out with line 6? Do you just simply plug it in and record? Because I feel like I'm not getting that good of a recording. And I know Line 6 PODs have been used in many professional recordings. The only thing I can think of is having a tone problem. Maybe my tone is bad?

If it's the model I think it is you'll want to use the direct outupts on the back of the amp with the "live/studio" switch set to studio... It will be a +4 line level signal. If your sound card has variable input make sure it matches and you should be fine...

From the Flextone II manual:

Studio Mode – Slide the Live/Studio Switch to the Studio position, and the XLR
Outputs will be +4 line level outputs with A.I.R. speaker-mic-room simulation,
ready to plug right into your recorder to lay down your guitar parts.......The speakers are
disabled in this mode.

Best regards-
