EBS Billy Sheehan Drive in recording
I have a Fender Geddy Lee Jazz Bass, and soon im buying a EBS Billy Sheehan Drive, but i wanna know if i can use the way im planning.
First, im recording the bass direct in a M-Audio Profire 2626, plugging in the instrument input. In my DAW, i duplicate the bass track, and in one track i cut the bass and use the amplitube with some overdrive in a bass amp. In the other track i use the amplitube too, with another bass amp, but leave the tone clean and primary for bass frequencies, and then use the two tracks for mixing.
So, i wanna plug the bass in the Billy Sheehan Drive, and send the output to the profire 2626, and use a normal instrument cable (MONO) in the CLEAN LOOP of the pedal and them, send to another channel of the interface, and mix the two tracks the same way i was doing before, but with an analog overdrive instead of a digital simulation. my question is: using the clean loop of the pedal to do what i want is correct and will work perfectly, splitting the sinal, like a DI, or i am better buying a DI, and send one output to the pedal, and another to the profire? Im very minimalist, and always prefer the shorter way of signals, less cables, less gear, etc...
Thanks in adavance!
