OT: Re: What is a "Tube Pre amp"?

Hi Jason,

the mailing list is about looping, not really about effects...
so, you're a little OT (off topic) but I can answer you.

The main problem must be the impedance, so you must put something that will
change the impedance between your guitar and the computer. A tube preamp 
be good but tubes add colors to your sound and if it is an accoustic 
it may be inappropriate... You can buy a good DI..

I can be wrong but I'm almost sure that it is an impedance problem..
