Why is there grinding sound of the guitars and bass when I use jack cable. Could it be that I have set the compressor and effects too high in fat channel? Or do I use the wrong type of cable? Is amateur. It is not the biggest problem.

It could be all the above mentioned.
The main thing for me is to use a good cable and try to establish if it is the fat chanel by turning it on and off. If you have other plugins in your chain check those too.

Can you describe your sound chain better? Guitar into cable into effects? into sound card? What card? What settings? Have you ensured that nothing is clipping? Have you tried to disable all effects in Studio one on the track. Is track level in S1 correct?

Etc...

Thanks! I had to switch cable and turn down the volume on the audio card.
Hear the sound at the end without clipping.

Please understand that these interfaces are not as robust as mixers are, (don't have the gain) and signal level and especially source impedance can case these problems. What happens if the impedance is wrong the pickups have to work to hard to deliver the sound needed resulting in a less than perfect sound transference. To get the best results when dealing with passive devices is have the correct impedance or use a direct box interface....

Thanks for good advice.
Perhaps I should turn down the master volume and also turn up the headphones when I record guitars. Do you have a url to a good inexpensive direct box interface?

I,ve got a Korg Toneworks AX1500G guitar Board?
