Hi guys, I have questions those are making me crazy.
-I have to record an electric guitar (passive pups) and a bass with passive pups too, they are gonna use pedalboard effects.
-I don't want to use Amps and Mic Techniques, and I would like to experiment a little with these Direct Boxes.(learn something new)
I'm just getting into doing some home recording and have a question which I'm sure is very simple but it's something that's been bugging me for a little while.
I was looking around and couldn't find a thread on this(maybe I missed it). I was looking for a really good phantom powered, reamping DI box. What are some really good ones that are reliable. I would be interested in buying a tube DI as well. What are your thoughts?
I found some countryman type 85 on craigslist for cheap. Any feedback on this DI box?
If I have to plug my guitar direct into a mixer during a live gig through a direct box, what is the difference when connecting the other end into the mic input vs. the line input of the mixer? Is it better going into the mic input, if so, why?
Thanks for any advice!
I'm using an Mbox with two inputs. So for one signal I go from the mic to the Mbox right?
And for the other signal I go from the bass guitar to the amp, out of the amp and into the DI box, and then from the DI box to the Mbox right?
And do you guys have any recommendations for a good passive DI box?
I currently have a Radial JDI. It sounds good. I'm fairly happy with it as am I with the DI on my Portico 5016. As quantative needs are increasing, I'm in the market for another one or two DIs. I have been reading opinions that Active DIs (in general) are better for guitars and basses. Is this true?
I have updated my tech page, and it have also a new address: http://www.hansenaudio.se/techpage.htm
1. Run guitar into MXR KFK 10 Band EQ (has two identical outputs)
2. One output goes to amp
3. One goes to FireBox HI-Z input.
Then I set up a mic and recorded the mic and dry DI at the same time. I reamped the DI through my Radial PRO RMP straight to the amp and recorded at the same settings and mic position. This is what ensued.
