I can't turn my guitar up or the amp without totally over loading the input so I can't get the tones I'm trying to create. I've tried turning to input all the way down, tried turning the level down on PC but turning down the amp kinda defeats the object. I can't record the amp with a mic as I have neighbours I don't want to annoy.

Do I need a DI box? Do I need a load box? I need to attenuate somehow but no matter how much I search I can't find the specific answer. Can I use something like this ( as I'm using a phones out it shouldn't overload anything?
