Might want to move this to the bandleading sub, you'll get better feedback there.

Yep. Rokits aren't great, but at $300 they are NOT overpriced. That's just the realistic bare minimum you can expect to spend on new monitors. Start spending $600+ and then you're looking at real...

Oh, no, the duet rocks, don't get me wrong. Just saying that really shows how good a nice outboard DI can be, especially one made for bass.

Not all DI units are created equal. They're probably using a REDDI or at the very least an Avalon U5. Those things will blow any consumer interface's DI out of the water - I even noticed a difference...

You probably don't need to spend a couple hundred. Try out the usual SM57 and/or a Sennheiser e609 (or 906?). The Sennheiser MD421 gets great thick guitar tones, but is a bit pricey.

Counterpoint: my personal experience has been the exact opposite. Swap sony and sennheiser and that's how I've found things to be.

That's how that works if you want to use the line out. The next step up would be to switch to a real mic, in my opinion.

You export the individual pieces called "stems" (just the dry audio from each track with no effects) and send those to a studio in .wav format for them to mix.
