do you mean to run a recorded sound out of the interface, through the effect(s) and back in? That's probably going to be a low impedance, line level (and possibly balanced). Most guitar effects are expecting a high impedance, instrument (low) level, unbalanced signal like what would be coming from a guitar, but some are flexible in that regard (except they're probably all unbalanced).
So it's kind of a crapshoot - I don't think there's much risk of damaging anything (but...) - if you can, read the manual - some of my effects straight up say they won't work at line level.
Oh - that should work fine I guess different amps have different input impedance tolerances, and who knows what the exact specifications are on your interface, but in any event, I wouldn't hesitate to try - should be pretty much what you expect.I was thinking more like connecting them like to my amp...first my guitar into the stompbox and from the stombox into HiZ input of the audio interface and into the recording software?
I don't know, haven't tried it before as this all is quite new to me fiddling around with audio interfaces and digital recording equipment.
That's pretty close to exactly what the first stage of any amplifier would hear. It's the fact that we insist on running those amps through speakers which can only be called "woofers" which makes distorted guitar listenable at all.Pedals to interface to software recorder often means fizzy if you're working with ditortion & fuzz.
