My setup is:
guitar -> effects pedal (ME-70) -> looper pedal (RC-3) -> amplifier (studio pro 112)
I'd like to get the output from the looper pedal into Ableton, while still hearing everything through the amplifier. It seems natural to try to put a 1/4" mono splitter after the looper pedal, with one branch leading to the amplifier and the other leading to my computer through a 1/4"-to-MIDI cable (I have a Rocksmith cable). But since I'm not sure how things can break, I wanted to ask first if this would work? Is there a better approach?
Also, would the same solution work for recording my bass guitar and bass amplifier, or would I have to change something?
