I got a nice Tascam DP24 Digital Portable Studio for Christmas. Without having to hear the amp, BDRI, I'd like to plug from the amp directly into one of the channels on the Tascam and do some recording using headphone. I want to go directly from the speaker output(1/4") on the amp to the Tascam. I believe what I'm looking for is a DI Box..???.. If that's the case the question is, can i get away with using a Passive DI, or do I need an Active DI. Also, if memory servers, the output wired on the BDRI can do 1 8ohm out, or 2 outs for 16ohm. As this isn't my life's work, I'd like to have so quality, but, inexpensive suggestions on what to use. I'd also prefer to not have to by an acutal atennuator(Weber Mini-Mass etc.) Note: only 1 instrument/guitar will be used at once at any given time. Thanks in advance for any replies! This what I'm looking for and what's the difference in these two? http://www.guitarcenter.com/Live-Wire/PDI-Double-Shielded-Heavy-Duty-Passive-Direct-Box.gc http://www.guitarcenter.com/Live-Wire-Solutions/SPDI-Passive-Direct-Box-with-Attenuation-Pad.gc Is the second better with the attenuation switch?
