Can I connect Marshall guitar-amp directly to ordinary M-Audio interface?

Hi Gearslutz!

I want to make a song with guitar-riffs played by my friend, recorded through his Marshall (AVT50 Valvestate) guitar-amp.

I have a HP laptop with an M-Audio Audiophile USB.

Questions:

1. What I want to know is: can I plug my friend's Marshall amp directly into my M-Audio Audiophile USB soundcard (audio interface)??

2. If, then what output on the Marshall amp should I use? There are:

- Loudspeaker (say Minimum Imp. 4 ohm underneith)
- Emulated DI Out
- Headphone Output (on front)

They are all Jack-sticks.

The Jack-inputs on my M-Audio audio-interface are stereo: two Jacks - left and right. Is it the M-Audio's left- or right- Jack-input I should use for mono? I seem to remember left = mono, but I might be wrong...

Emulated DI or Headphones, try both, see which sound you prefer, into the left input for mono

Whatever you do...DO NOT plug the loudspeaker direct into the soundcard...this could do some serious damage!

the emulated out is intended for recording without micing it up.

You can actually use either input on the M-Audio, they are basically both mono ins.... you just need to make sure you set up to record as a mono track in your recording software.

Remember to have the loudspeaker hooked up when you are recording!!

Running a guitaramp without the loudspeaker hooked would also do some serious damage!!

It won't let me post on the thread you have linked there! However check out asio4all. Just google it and download it for free, then when selecting your audio device in fl or whatever, use that driver, should (don't hold me to it) solve your problem
