Hello! I've been recording guitars at home for fun for a couple of years, but now I want to record some music in order to release it. I would like to record the guitars dry in order to send them to a sound engineer to re-amp them. Since I've never recorded dry, I would like to ask if anyone could help me out concerning what would be the best set up.

My gear consists of a Focusrite 2i2 DAW, a POD xt live multi effect, and a Behringer DI box, the Ultra G GI100 and I record in Ableton Live9.

I've read that when recording dry a DI is quite important, therefore I was wondering,
should it be 1. Guitar -- DI -- DAW or
2. Guitar -- DI -- POD (used as a sound card) or
3. Guitar -- DI -- POD -- DAW?

Thanks a lot!

You should read the introduction to recording sticky.

Thoroughly.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

The 2i2 has a DI built in, which is probably much better than any Behringer.

Guitar > 2i2 > DAW

^ only if the p/ups have a fairly high output.

Please everybody read the introduction to recording sticky before returning here.

if you want clipping recordings than that is the way to do it.
You set the gain to where it doesn't clip.
