ok so my amp marshalll jvm410 has an emulated xlr output...does this mean i can plug it directly into my macbook pro and record using cubase? or do i need something else to run the amp head through and then into the computer?

thank you lads

macbooks have good enough D/A converters that you should be able to do it without an interface. So yes, you can go straight from the amps line out to the macbook.

I would recommend the presonus Firebox (assuming you have one of the older Macbooks with firewire ports)

Yeah macbook pro's especially have really surprisingly good A/D convertors (and D/A as previously mentioned).

i have a macbook pro

so if i plug the line out directly to the macbook book i will be able to record the exact sound from my amp without having to mic it up ? very exciting prospect

Why the hell did you keep posting that?

Anyway, Analogue/Digital and vice versa. That's what it stands for.

I won't sound exactly the same, because the speaker has a pretty large effect on the tone, I'm not sure if that amp has a speaker simulator wired into it's line out (some amps do, some don't) but even if it does it wont sound exactly the same, but it can get pretty close.

^ correct, the line out will bypass the poweramp and speaker, which contribute hugely to the tone. you'll need some sort of cab-sim to make it sound good.
