Recording Analog Outputs?

  • Hello,

    Please help me with few questions that I need to try get my head around

    I understand that the Virus TI uses +4dBu Line level Balanced outputs - I want to record this analog out through a 2ch pre amp, and I have read that I should use the instrument input on the pre using unbalanced cables as the input is unbalanced - Can I record a Line Level signal from the virus into an instrument input like this (using unbalanced cables)

    The Pre also has line level inputs - would I have better results recording into the line level inputs using balanced cables?

    If I want to record into a mic pre which using the mic input - should I be using a Line - Mic DI or a Instrument to Mic DI?

    Any insight would be appreciated - thanks!
