D.I.Box needed for Recording E-Git. over Mixer? Direct Injection & Re-amp Boxes

D.I.Box needed for Recording E-Git. over Mixer?

Hello everyone,

I just don`t know if I need a D.I-Box for this purpose. my mixer has a trim-pot and I can switch between "line" and "mic".

I get enough output-signal if I switch to "line" and adjust the trim-pot to 0dB - but somehow it`s a little to noisy....

maybe you guys have some suggestion for a good but inexpensive D.I.-Box for around 50 bucks...???

Or maybe my problem lies anywhere else and I have to clean the Mixer to get rid of the noise...???
It`s a pretty old mixing-desk from the 80s..

thanks in advance for pointing me in the right direction.

best wishes

Countryman DI will last a longtime.
Lil more than 50 bucks but worth it over
ART, Berinhger, etc...

The countryman is a legend. But I still love and recommend the RADIAL PRO DI, it sounds good and costs only a third.
