but I am not totally positive. I want to record to my computer and I think I have it straight. I was looking to get the M-Audio Auduiphile 2496 (i think that's what its called). If I get that card I believe it has RCA inputs. So a possible setup could be: my bass -> BBE Bmax pre line out or they call it a main out( i dont have a DI or mic pre) -> RCA on soundcard and then RCA out -> stereo. I can get an adaptor to go from 1/4" to RCA. My two questions are 1) can i use the BBE Bmax has a preamp to bring the bass to line level and 2) when using an adaptor to go from 1/4" to RCA do i need to have two RCA plugs on the other end or can I just use one RCA plug? I hope you understand what I am asking.
