Hi all, I am using a m-audio solo firewire audio card linked with a SPDIF cable to my pc to record my electric guitar.

Effects are Boss GT6 and this time I am recording with Audacity (I haven't installed Cubase yet, but I will soon)

This is the best sound I obtain:

But with preamp effects turned on, the sound get too much distorted and fuzzed, here you can listen the mess with the preamp

How can I solve this? Some tips with cubase or others audio software, tips for better setting my effects?
Get an amp sim and run your guitar direct.
