Hey guys I've tried thumbing through some of the stickies in the forum about recording and gear FAQs but didn't find much on what I'm looking for. I've been doing some home recording as of late; my best friend is a guitar player and we're trying to put some songs together. Here's what I'm trying to achieve: I want to split my signal coming from my bass so I can have one track clean and one track with effects and blend the two to my liking. Here's a short list of the gear I'm using: -Hartke LH1000 head/ HyDrive 4x10 cabs -Boss GT-10B -ProTools Express via M-Audio M-Track Plus I figure for a clean signal I could use the direct out on the front of the LH1000 into the first channel's mic input on the M-Track. For the effects signal use the guitar in on the second channel. Where I'm getting stumped is how to get a signal to the amp to use the direct out AND a signal into my boss board. Am I overthinking this? Any ideas or suggestions- or a point to a thread that could help- would be greatly appreciated!
