Split Guitar Signal

Looking for the best way to split a guitar signal; one into my real amp, another into my interface to take a DI track.

There seems to be 2 options, but I’m not sure if one is better or worse.

- Use a DI box
- Use a signal splitter like a BigShot ABY

Looking for the the cleanest and most reliable signal. I’m using a Focusrite Clarett thunderbolt as my interface if that makes any difference.

I use this for splitting signal in my studio:
Morley ABY Selector Combiner Routing & Switching Device

I like it because you can easily deactivate or active an output. I use it a lot for bass guitar recording as i like to send the bass to 2 different mic'ed bass cabinets.

Lives for gear
 

The above option looks great.

I just use my Boss tuner to send one path through my pedalboard and amp, and then a completely dry signal to a DI box. If you already have both, it's worth a shot before investing in more gear, although that ABY switcher does have the added benefit of being able to quickly switch the signal path as needed.
