Home recording help

Hi there, I've started working on my home recording setup and I'm not quite sure what I'm doing wrong.

My current setup is:
Instruments(Guitar, keyboard, voice) --> Boss RC-300 --> Amp --> splitter --> 1. headphones, 2.behringer guitar link interface --> computer

With this setup I get a lot of static/feedback but if I unplug the cable to the interface it's fine. So I'm wondering if I need to upgrade my interface or my amp? Or if there's more efficient way to go about this?

Thanks in advance

What's the amp output, a line signal?

It could be a plethora of things causing it from your gain level and any spot of your signal chain to a electrical ground issue.

So go through your entire signal chain and check every gain stage and make sure the levels are properly set. There are no 'right' settings as gain stage levels vary depending on and what sound you want and what ids in front and in back of your signal chain.

If everything looks good, then start taking one thing out at a time from you signal chain until that sound stops to rule out everything in your signal chain and gain stage.

If that doesn't correct it, then yo may need to call an electrician to look into ground issues.
