I was wondering how to link up a few stomp box pedals to record with them on my laptop. I currently use a line6 ux1 and connect my guitar straight the instrument input, if I was to put a stomp box between my ux1 and guitar would that work for recording??
Yes, you got that right. It's the same way you'd put a stomp box in front of an amp. Real tube amps may react differently to some effects (sound different) when compared to a modeler.
you have to have a hi z input on your interface, or a di box to just go from pedals to interface
