I2M with amp and laptop?

Postby Bendric » Fri Mar 04, 2011 9:01 am

Hi James,

I just bought the i2m for my bass guitar and I have a question:

Is it possible to use my amp for the true sound of my bass and my laptop for VST sounds?
Does this schema is correct:

BASS > AMP > DI out > Mixer
and
BASS > AMP > Effect send > i2m > Laptop

Is it dangerous to put i2m after the amp like this schema?

(Sorry for my english, i'm french, i hope you understand my question!!!)

Thanks...

This setup is ok. As long as the effect send signal isn't too hot, otherwise the input to the i2M may clip too often.

Another option. Because the input to the i2M is very high impedance, you can split the signal before the i2M using a "Y-cable" so you can feed the i2M and your amp directly from your bass. This shouldn't affect the bass signal significantly. But for purists, with high-quality instrument cables, it's still better to do as you suggest and use the effect send to ensure the original bass sound is optimal.

I think you should to use Compaq Presario 1030US laptop with an M-Audio Firewire 410 audio interface. You should to use the CS80V and Super beachcomber P8 VST instruments a lot, as well as a number of effects. It gives you best performance.

Thank you for your purchase suggestions, but I'm not going to change everything just for i2m!!!!

Musically..
