so i've just got my country man 85, i plug it into a soundcraft spirit board (solit state preamp) and into the RME. i've noticed some excess noise, it's un-audible on the clean di tracks, unless you listen to quite part where the guitar didnt played and boost it really loud. Or, when you reamp. then you can hear it. i wonder, is it normal? i guess the preamp adds some noise, but unless you have a really expensive digital pream i guess there is always some noise, no? can someone listen to the DI and maybe try some ampsim on it and tell me if it sounds normal? i will just say that i use high quality cables. link: http://min.us/mXrj13hKa thanks!
