huh.gif Basically, all guitars & basses have microphones with a hi-Z output that matches a hi-Z input on the amp. Line level signals (ot a normal microphone signal) are lo-Z. That means that You could not plug Your guitar straight into a recording console for instance (or a soundcard without hi-Z inputs, thats really why most people think computer amp simulators suck...) So before the pre-amp in a guitar amp the signal will be Hi-Z, and is preffered to be that all the way in terms of pedals etc. But in a studio environment the balanced lo-Z signals are preferred,

So when I record... I run through an Audio Kontrol 1 sound card/ interface... does that turn my signal into low Z for the recording software (Reaper)? I pulled up the input and output specifications just to see if I could find this "hi-z" but don't see it? Iis it the difference between the input signal and the output signal below? I've included the link http://www.native-instruments.com/#/en/pro...rol-1/?page=385

since it didn't quite post properly dry.gif THannk You!!!

As far as I can read the "Instrument" input is 1 MOhm, which is definitely hi-Z and will be suited for guitar/bass. I was'nt maybe clear enough, but nowadays there is many soundcards that can handle guitar/bass input and then have the inputs marked as "Instrument". If they are marked just "Line-In", its probably lo-Z and You have to check the documentation to be sure.
