As a guitaris I'm using a lot of special pedals like those from Earthquaker Devices so there is no way to replace them with digital ones. Therefor I'd love to directly record with those pedals (no reamping). When I go electric guitar into Pedals (Boost, Distortion, Fuuz, Pitch, Reverb, Delay, Flanger...) into interface (AudioBox USB 96) where the input is already as quiet as possible (-10dB) some Pedals tend to clipp really fast despite they are not turned to max volume. So I have to turn them down a lot which leads to a negative sound modification I am not looking for but otherwise I can't record without clipping. Afterwards I use digital Amp & Box Simulations by Studio One 4.
So the question is how can I use my pedals while recording with the knob options that sound best with a real amp without clipping. Is there a specific tool I need infront of the Interface, or a special interface, or is something like this only possible with reamping (I haven't done reamping yet and also doubt that it is possible with just the AudioBox USB 96)?
