Ive just tried direct recording my electric guitar through the amp into my multitracker. However, the clean sound its supposed to have comes out a bit distorted when loud.

Am i doing something wrong? The volume meter thing is ok,and the volume on the amp should be ok.

yeh record at a lower volume, disortion occurs when the imput overloading the preamp or whatever is taking the sound, so just turn down the volume, its like when you trun a clean channel up to full,,,, it will stick be slightly distorted
Turn down the mike preamp, then amp gain if that's not enough.

Yp\ou can turn your mic sensetivity (if you have an interface) up to were into the yellow red areas and it will create a slite overdriven/distorted sound.
No...that'll create a bad digital distortion. The only thing that doesn't distort badly are tube-driven preamps and amp heads.
