Another DI question

Discussion in 'Recording Gear and Equipment [BG]' started by KingOfAmps, May 17, 2002.

  1. Is running the balanced-out from my amp (XLR type; NOTE: it's POST EQ/includes all processing done in the preamp) to a 4-track recorder considered "Going Direct" IN THE SAME SENSE as plugging my bass straight into a separate "transparent" DI box?

    Is the latter what I should be doing to get as far away as possible from the mic'd signal? I already have a D112 on the cabinet.
  2. Probably.
