Becoming A Rock Star - Step One Required

Postby Est57 on Mon 8/Nov/10 9:42pm

Does anyone know how I can get the signal from an electric guitar to my computer. I've been told to try the headphone 'out' and get a jack plug on the amp to USB cable but can't find any where that makes such a thing - any ideas?

Get an adaptor from guitar lead - ipod earphone size jack. Plug your guitar lead into this jack, and plug the jack into the microphone slot in the computer. :)

If its just a line level input you can use a standard guitar cable with a 3.5mm adaptor on one end into the mic socket on your laptop (this is the soundcards line in) but you'll need some sort of recording software (audacity is a decent free one). You can buy dedicated guitar to PC cables and any decent music shop will have them... You shouldn't need an amp in the loop. Thats the cheapest ghetto way of doing it.
