Hi all, Yes, I know there are several threads on this subject, including the sticky on the front page), and I do know how to use the phones-out (My stereo doesn't have a dedicated "line out" jack) to line-in on the back of the mac pro. But I'm wondering - I have the Line 6 Toneport UX1, which has the following: Mic in (XLR) Instrument in (1/4") Headphone out (1/4") 2 Line inputs (1/4") 1 Stereo Monitor input (1/4") And on the top, both a mic gain and volume knob. The connection into the computer would be USB. Would I get better quality by sending the audio through this device, rather than just using a standard 1/8" -> 1/8" stereo cable, and which input should I plug into? Thanks for any advice!
