Mp3directcut will work exactly has it has done, analogue feed to the pc.

I don’t know if it had normalisation routines, but the “apparent level” sent over the USB interfaces is relatively low, allowing for dynamic levels (which are then compressed out of most modern music)

If you retain an analogue feed (a valid option) then you can do exactly as before.

If you use the USB B streaming then 24 channels of audio are transferred, because you just hooked up a 24 channel sound card. You can then choose to record only one of these if you like – but the level will be ~18dB under what you might have expected, so you’re going to want to boost it.

If you use QDrive then you can easily grab a stereo recording, but you’ll need to convert it to MP3, and probably normalise the volume (same ~18dB drop from what you might expect)

With 24bit was files that 18dB drop doesn’t impact s/n, it does mean that the guitar/drum solo doesn’t clip.
