    i just got my hands on an ampeg svt1000 bass head.

    i want to record from the line out on the back of it. it has a balanced (xlr female) and an unbalanced (1/4") plug on it. which should i use and why?

    when i follow this signal chain, (xlr female to balanced 1/4" cable into my stage box's send/return jack in my live room, into my la610's line-in in my control room) i get a buzzing sound howcome?

    well you could do 2 things...

    1... xlr into an xlr input on your interface or mixer

    2... Head ----(1/4)---> DI box ----(XLR)----> input

    See if your box has a "ground lift" switch, to eliminate the buzzing.

    *self thinks about some buzzing problems of his own*
    *self agrees: should've pressed Gnd Lift*
