But why can't I just send the recorded tracks from my audio interface directly to that amp? There's a catch: the audio interface provides only line-level signals, but the amp expects an instrument (low-level) signal. There is also a impedance mismatch: the audio interface got low-impedance outputs, but the guitar amp a high-impedance input.The setup will sound just bad. Luckily, a reamping box transforms a high-impedance line-level signal to a low-impedance instrument signal seamlessly. All this enables you to move mics around the room, change amps or add effects to optimize the sound of the recording. And reamping works equally well on bass, voice and other instruments! A direct box does exactly the opposite: it performs high-to-low impedance conversion and signal balancing, so, the user is able to record dry electric guitar or electric bass guitar tracks directly to a recording device that has no instrument/high-impedance (Hi-Z) inputs.
