Hello,
 I am soon going to buy my first electric violin. I have been an acoustic violinist for 20 years so going in, will need some help on how to setup YEV 104. I live on an island bit far away from the rest of the world, so trying out locally is not an option as there are no shops stocking EVs here. But I can get everything online.

My current setup is that I have an audio interface connected to my studio monitor speakers. I wish to plug the violin in the instrument input of the audio interface via the 1/4 inch output jack from the violin. I have heard that YEV 104 has passive pickup, so a pre-amp will be great. So I am also thinking of getting LR Baggs Para DI as pre-amp for YEV 104. And have the output of Para DI connected to the instrument input of audio interface. Will this setup work fine for Yamaha YEV 104?

Thanks,
JC

What you’ve described should work fine.
Did have a thought about convenience though...
Assuming you’ve got a fairly standard audio interface that has both mic level inputs (XLR) with phantom power and instrument input (1/4”) inputs, you might consider using the XLR input so that you can take advantage of the phantom power to power the para DI. Otherwise, you’ll have to use a battery to power the para DI since it doesn’t have a convenient way to be externally powered.

Many thanks @Benzflieger for the tip about XLR. Totally makes sense and in fact that's what I will do to connect ParaDI to my Steinberg UR22 audio interface.
