Hi, I'm currently using Logic 9, along with a MOTU 828mkii interface. I'm in the middle of trying to write a song that, unfortunately, happens to require rhythm guitar. I say unfortunately because, despite having a guitar around, I'm not really a guitar player, and I can't really find any samples in my Logic/Kontakt libraries that suffice (not enough attack). Therefore, I'm left to figure it out on the guitar and just go at it, which is fine. The problem is that, when I plug in, despite adjusting the levels on my interface, the sound is barely audible. What is clearly audible, though, is the amount of hiss and fuzz that renders any recording useless. The other concern I have is a safety one, as I almost shocked myself when I plugged the cable into the guitar. Which means my set up is clearly not right. What I did was purchase this cable: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003UCC742/ref=oh_details_o07_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Then I connected it from my guitar straight into my MOTU 828 mkii. But this is clearly not working, so I'd be curious to know what steps I've missed and what I need to finally get going properly. This isn't really my area, so any insight is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
