Hi IDMF! I hope you can give me some advices.
I recently bought electric guitar (1985 Aria Pro II RS Inazuma-II if anyone is interested). I also have Infrasonic Deux audio interface ([Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
). This thing has pretty quality sound, but it doesn't have any instrumental inputs, only balanced line ones. It means that when I plug my guitar directly to this input, I can't hear any sound because the signal is unamplified. Now I have to connect my guitar to line input of internal soundboard and then process the signal using NI Guitar Rig. The quality is average at best.
I've come up with following solutions. Can you advice me which one to choose and why?
1. Buy an audio interface with instrumental inputs instead (e.g. Focusrite Scarlett Solo)
2. Buy DI box
3. Buy guitar processor (e.g. Zoom G1Xon). This one appeal to me because I'll be able to use it without computer as well.
