    Oh yes, finally my new toy is here!
    At last!
    It looks awesome, total 80s DeLorean vibe.

    Anyways, I have no cab at home to try it out.
    Could I plug the amp directly to my computer sound card line-in or would I fry both my card and amp?
    I guess I could use the amp's DI and plug it directly to sound card's line-in, but I don't think I have the microphone-jack cable.
    Is it a total NO to using amp's cab output to line-in? Even if I put the input volume on the amp really low?

    Shouldn't this be posted under Humor?

    Yes sir!
    But seriously though, I should be able to use the amp's DI with no problem, no?

    You are going to blow up your new toy.

    For the love of it, please only plug in your DI :eek:. I am pretty sure you shouldn't fry your card, but check with others first. Don't plug it in via the output.

    Because of no load-out? I thought solid state amps don't need cabs.
    Or because of the DI?

    So just to be safe, can I use the amp DI to plug into my sound card?

    Yes. Done that a couple of times.
