DI boxes are supposed to have such high input impedance.
20 to 50 mv into a nominal -10dBm consumer type line input
feeding a 24-bit converter could work fine without extra
gain. You may need some extra 'digital gain' if the level
of the instrument needs to be quite high in the mix.
Ardour doesn't provide 'input gain', and its fader has
only 6dB positive gain, but an amp or compressor plugin
will do the trick.
