I'm new at this PC recording thing, so please bear with me. Right now I've got an XLR out from my Sansamp RBI preamp going into the breakout box on my Delta 44 soundcard. When playing straight into the amp, I have a fairly low output into my recording programs, even with the XLR volume on at 3 o'clock. Now, when I add my Boss GT-6B into my signal chain between my bass and the preamp, my signal boosts up to what it should. Does this mean I should be plugging my XLR out into a small mixer or something to boost the signal into my PC? If so, does anyone have a recommendation for a small inexpensive unit? Thanks!
