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!!!
