I got a Tascam firewire audio interface for my Mac so I could record myself playing. I chose the interface in part because it has a 1/4 input for guitar. The problem is, that the signal is just too weak.. I can barely hear my bass. I have active pickups, and my bass volume maxed out, and the input gain maxed out, but still very low volume. I was wondering if perhaps I just picked the wrong interface.. Were there interfaces out here where you can just plug in you bass direct and get a good level? I see Ashdown has announced the "MiBass Audio Interface".. looks like it would be just what I need, although it isn't available yet.
