Hi Folks, sorry if this sounds daft - I'm a software based musician and am new to all this. I bought a dB a couple of weeks ago with a realist pickup fitted. Lovely sound acoustically. I want to plug the bass straight into my studio set up (into mixer then into soundcard then into computer). Currently when I do that the signal is almost non existent ie very very quiet and weak. I think the pickup is fine as we tested it with an amp when I bought it. I'm guessing I need some kind of DI box? But I don't know where to start - does it need to be passive or active? Can anyone recommend an entry level DI box to use with double bass? Excuse my ignorance on this matter - any advice gratefully received.
