Hello all.

I have (finally) purchased a 360/12 and since I do not presently have a stereo amp, want to try to run it through the PC processor.

Just plugging it into the Mic and line inputs produce no sound at all.

I see plenty of mono preamps, but no stereo preamps suitable for a Ric.


Suggestions please. Thanks!

Wait? What kind of I/O are you using? What DAW are you using? Are you utilizing a plug in like Line 6 Pod Farm?

How are you plugging your guitar into your computer? Most people use Line 6 PODs or Digitech RP.

My Digitech RP-150 has two inputs, so you could plug both output jacks into the pedal, but it wouldn't do much good.

I use several techniques to enhance the stereo sound if that's what you're after.

Most computers have sound cards that have stereo mic inputs. Just change one end of one of those stereo min-connectors to a 1/4" stereo jack (or just buy an adapter like this), plug it into the ROS output and go. Whatever you do, don't try to use both jacks on the guitar at the same time.

Preamps would only be needed if you want to use the line in on the sound card but would certainly give you additional control over the tone and level.

I was plugging directly onto the mic and then tried the line in port of the computer. I figured a pre amp would be the best way to go so your recommendations are a great help.

I am trying to get the most from the stereo output so any hints are welcome.

Thanks!

Ed

The stereo output is an old design that John Hall would do away with if not for traditional Rickenbacker fans. When you're recording directly into a PC, it's not necessary at all and will not work in the way it was originally designed.

If you use a POD or Digitech RP, you'll be able to plug a USB cord into the PC from the "pre-amp," as you call it. With these boxes you can change EQ, model various amps, and use many different effects.

Outstanding! (Can you tell I am an old Navy guy?)

From what I was looking at the RP-150 is not made anymore. The 155 looks to be the next version.

Does this unit use true ROS input? I gather not...

The only way to use true ROS is with two amps and a splitter cable?

Thanks for all the help.

1. Yes, the RP-series is now updated. The RP-155 is nearly identical to the 150, and there are many other models. You don't necessarily need the 155; they all have USB outputs, as does the Line6 Pod.

2. You don't want to use your ROS with the pedal. It does have two inputs, but it's irrelevant because when you use a USB interface, you only have one input into the laptop.

3. Yes, the only way to use the ROS is with two amps and a splitter.

I hope that helps.
