guitar processing

hi,

cant remember if ive asked this before, but ive looked on the search function for long enough.

To run a guitar through max and into an amp, do you need a DI box or will the signal go straight to a guitar amp and not destroy it?

also, is it best to run guitar>amp>fx loop out>max>fx loop in ?

thanks

maybe it depends on your interface, but i ran directly into the fx loop of my amp okay from max a few times using my motu 828mkii’s outputs

you have to take a look at your hardware specs.. to see the voltage input/output margins.. you have high and low voltage stuff.. if the input/output accepts both no prob.. other way, you have to check out to see what is compatible.. greets.. james
