    Hi everybody,
    I'd like to know which DI units you guys would recommend to record bass and guitars to be reamped later on ? Which ones are "pro-recommended" ?
    What do you guys think about the "DI output" on the bass POD ?
    And with a DI box, do you plug it straight into the soundcard input ?
    What are some of the recommendations of use to get the best possible results for a mixing engineer to reamp later on?
    I made a research but haven't found the answer
    Thanks

    I use eaither the HI-z on my Grace 101 or my Great River MP2NV. The Grace is clean and ver true to the source. The Great River can be dialed in for a multitude of sounds.

    Thanks for your answer. What should I use to record DI while at the same time feeding an amp to record that as well ?

    I use the "through" on my DI, it just mirrors the input through an output for routing to the amp.

    Should give much more control over the tone as it is not just a DI box, but also a bass amp emulator.

    I highly recommend the Radial J48, especially if you're using active pickups.

    When pondering this same question a while ago, I got myself a Tech21 SansAmp RB1 off ebay, and have since used it on every project. It's got a lot of input and output options, and there's also a knob that when set to one extreme is purely a DI signal, and when set to the other extreme is a purely SansAmp-ed signal. I've never had any trouble dialing in an appropriate tone.

    I have a SansAmp bass driver and an SansAmp RBI. They do sound a bit different. But both cool pieces. I have a Radial J48 on order... can't wait.
