Is the re-amping device really necessary however? What were your experiences regarding using a re-amper withe the Fireface outputs? I have an X-Amp and used it to re-amp through the line level output of the Fireface. However I was also able to do the same thing without using the X-Amp just by connecting the output of the Fireface directly to my guitar amp input. The results sound the same to me. Does anyone know if Im missing out something here? Is there a real benefit to using a re-amper instead of using the line output of the Fireface? Thanks.
In many situations the rules saying " low into high will fly; high into low won't go", works.
The problems that i know that may raise are:
-the limited headroom since you may have to reduce a lot the output line level from the Fireface to not overload the guitar in. So here if your guitar lick is having a very wide dynamic range, maybe it cannot translate as well or exactly like original.
-isolation, so here potential ground loop, and also noise and distortion issues.
So, use your ears and if the result with your setup works fine, great!
