Hey i am recording with my boss gt-8 atm by connecting the digital out port to my maudio audiophile 2496. The sound is ok but i get unwanted distortion when recording, even when the signal is not clipping. Could this be because i have set up the settings on my soundcard specifically to the gt-8? I set the S/PDIF to S/PDIF in when recording is this right? Do i need a mixer inbetween the sound card and the gt-8, i wouldn't think so cause it's all digital signal :S Is there any other ways to hook it up? Midi?

Any help much appreciated
hey dude i have boss GT-8, its a beastly machine, haha. Personally, i dont like to do any direct in stuff with it, i run it through my line 6 spider III and mic it with a oddly enough, a CAD tom drum mic. also, try running one of the 1/4" outputs such as the left mono one or the phones and play with that sound on by adjusting both your sound card and the unit itself. Best of luck!!!


This is the sound i get with mine. I use a maudio fasttrack for an interface, nothing fancy at all haha
