Q: I have a Gallien-Krueger MB200 compact bass head and I want to connect it to my Focusrite Saffire Pro 14 audio interface. The MB200 has a switchable Headphone/Line Out jack and a Direct Out jack. Which should I use to connect to my interface?
A: Either will work, depending on how you hook them up. The XLR Direct Out can be switched at the amp from pre- or post-EQ, allowing you tone shaping options. Since it is a DI, the signal will come out at microphone level, and should be routed into one of the microphone inputs on your interface.
