Sounds like you want to use a pre-amp, then.

AFAIK, this chain is effectively a NO-OP:

guitar --> DI box --> XLR --> DI/Transformer --> line in

..except for distortion introduced by the DI's. So
even if you get it set up -- you'll probably get the
same results as plugging straight in.

But, if you have a 2nd DI box or one of those $10
transformer things[1]... it's worth a try.
