Would this be too much pre going into pre ? I want a heavy rock sound. I have a VT BASS pedal and I have access to an API A2D. I own 2 F-Basses. So would I be better off going direct from VT BASS straight into Allen & Heath board to recorder. Or bass into line in on API to recorder, (or) VT BASS pedal into API into board/recorder. I do want some growl.
