I've been trying various outputs on my Milkman the Amp trying to get a good sound for recording direct.

Oddly enough, of the three options (pedal out, XLR out, headphones out) I m getting the best results using the headphone jack.

I'm going into a UAD Apollo Twin and have tried both the mic/line, the XLR, and the instrument in.

Overall, I'm getting the best sound using the headphones out on the Amp into the instrument in on the Twin.

Just curious how others are using the Amp to record direct.

Line out to line in is how most all pro audio engineers do it whether the jacks are RCA, phone plugs or XLR's. Of course you need to get the signal up to line level via an instrument level input first be it a guitar amp or a direct box. Headphone to instrument in should be hotter than a firecracker leaning toward massive distortion when pushed. No laws in audio however. Whatever fits your ear.
