I hope I can communicate my question correctly.
So I recently purchased a Focusrite Scarlet Solo and I’m trying to figure out how to make this work how I want it to.
Basically, what I’m trying to do is be able to plug my guitar into the amp or interface, hear the sound from my Bass amp while playing, and still be able to record into Ableton or Rocksmith with no background noise. (this means, microphones are out of the question, too much noise in my home).
Before I mention what I’ve already tried, here’s what I’m working with as far as gear (will also mention the amps inputs to make this easy for anyone trying to help <3 ) :
Bass Guitar w/ Active Pickups
Focusrite Scarlett Solo Gen 3
Fender Rumble LT25 Amplifier (has Footswitch, Input, Aux in, Headphone jack - NO XLR)
What I tried so far is I bought a cable that is Dual TRS 1/4 to single TRS 1/4. Connected the end with 2 trs connections into the back of the interface (where you would usually plug in studio monitors) and connected the other end to the amp where i’d usually plug in the guitar. Ultimately, this did work, butttttttt it sounded like crap.
Next thing I’m going to try is this: I purchased a 3.5mm to 1/4 TRS cable. I’m going to try plugging the 3.5mm side into the amplifier’s AUX port (you can plug your phone into this amp and have a backing track) , and the other side into the headphone port of the focusrite.
I don’t know if it will work. And I’m not sure the quality will be that great (not a big deal but would like it to be somewhat close to what the amp originally sounded like). I’m also worried about breaking stuff.
Does anyone have a better solution than this? The general idea I’m going for is, I’m trying to be able to record isolated instruments (in my case) from a live performance.
