Hiya! I've got a peavey XXL with a preamp out. is it possible to connect that port diretly into my computer sound card with out something blowing up (it working in other words). thanks!
can you use it to play with headphones?
If you don't run it through the poweramp, your tone will sound like hell. The preamp out is there so that you can send the preamp signal to a different power amp.
No. You signal will not be amplified enough to do anything with it; it has to run through the power amp first. That's called the effects loop, you put things there that you don't want in front of the preamp.
No. You signal will not be amplified enough to do anything with it;
tish and pish - I can play my guitar plugging it straight into the soundcard and get a sound.
And does it sound good?
you would need some sort of speaker emulation, look up for some cabinet impulses and how to use them
