Hey guys, I'm a n00b at recording and know that this is probably a dumb question but here it goes...

I'm looking to record my AXE FX Ultra direct in (DI) into Logic on my macbook pro. I tried plugging my AXE FX output into my computer's input using a 1/4 to 1/8 inch and I could only get a hissing noise to come out of it. Do I need a USB recording interface to record into logic DI? If so, which one would be good for me? I do NOT need anything fancy (the axe fx will be doing all the effects and tone shaping), just something that will allow me to get the sound I get using my axe fx recorded into Logic.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Yes, you need an interface.

Focusrite Saffire 6 and the Apogee One/Duet are the best under ~$500.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.
