Ive been looking around for direct input boxes for recording, and Im a bit confused on how they work.

Do you need a line out amplifier to use them, or do you just run your speaker cable straight into it? Common sense tells me its just the line out, but im asking just to be sure.

I guess it would depend on the model, but I'm pretty sure you'd send the speaker. If the amp has a line out what would you need a DI box for?

Getting mixed responses, can anyone link me to a website that explains it?

Do you have a specific one you're looking at? Also, what precisely are you wanting to do? I know you said for recording, but can you be more specific?

Well Im not sure whether to go Passive or Active yet. It will be used for lots of differnt applications from metal to clean ambient stuff.

Im just looking into getting a different sound but going straight in.

Been searching though the Radials, not sure which model yet.

Are you debating between passive or active pick ups in a guitar?
All of our days are numbered
I’ve taken some comfort
In knowing the wave has crested
Knowing I don’t have to be an exception

Those radial DI boxes seem like they are made for plugging an acoustic guitar, bass, or keyboard straight into a mixing board.

I meant how are you recording, should've been more specific. Are you looking to run this straight into your computer or what?

Edit: I just realized something, the guys in the recording forum will probably know more about this that us, maybe start a thread there as well.

You could get a load box with a line out and run your the line out to the preamp. You'd have to use some sort of cab simulator for best results, but that would work pretty well.
