I'm a juggler, selling a circus-musical to theatres in Europe and I have been gradually buying all the equipment that I need to perform with, without borrowing it from each theatre I go to. One issue that I often face is that technicians often ask me to bring a DI-Box, in order to convert the piano's output from jack-jack to jack-DI-XLR. I also believe it helps when covering large distances of cabling to the sound desk? The thing is, I already own a Focusrite 2i2 audio interface and my question is: Can I use that instead? If I did, I would be able to record the audio from the show in a high quality way, everytime. But will I still receive the issue with distance from the technicians' console?
Sorry about how I have no idea what I'm talking about 🙈 Please and thank you in advance!
