Spider IV to computer recording

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to record on a computer through a Spider IV with a shortboard? And if so what cables would i need to do so?

Yes, but the amp only provides audio ouput (from the DI/headphone ouput jack).  You would use this stereo audio output into an appropriate audio interface (Line 6 UX2, for example).  You could try adapting to the line-in of your computer, but typically the OEM sound cards in computers are not suitable for audio recording/reproduction.

I have found that i get better recordings using a mic in front of the amp.

 

Me too.  I find that the DI output lacks dynamics.
