Hi,

It seems silly, but yh I bought a cable that goes from USB to a female XLR jack. Anyway, it works great, using it as an input device, so Mic going into the XLR end or guitar, into a DI box, then into the computer. For some reason however, it doesn't seem to play audio the other way through, so computer to USB to XLR - back through the DI (in reverse) then into the amp.

Basically I want to use it for reamping.

I do have a preamp, which works fine through my DI box, however I want to use the preamp for the mic when I reamp, so I need this USB-XLR lead to work as an output. It shows audio as playing on the computer, as the volume moves up/down, so its not to do with the driver (I think)

Are these cables only one way for some reason? (Even though it does show up as an output device)

I hope I have just done something stupid!

Thanks and il answer any questions if this is confusing to read.

PS please move this if its in the wrong thread!

As far as I know, you need a re-amping box to push the signal. I could be wrong as I've never done it, but here's a video tutorial on it:

I have essentially got one, all be it a DI box in reverse. Ive seen people use one like I have, which seems to work as a reamp box is basically a DI in reverse. But maybe if I open up the lead il be able to find out if the signal is actually travelling through the lead properly! Im just reluctant as it works one way

Sorry man can't be anymore help I'd suggest trying like a re-amping forum where there's guys who do this for a living, it's a pretty hot topic recently so there should be a big message board somewhere with experts!
