People have said that the LineIn can work before on this forum.

Thing is most people are talking about MicIn's on Cheap motherboard Sound cards. If I'm right a LineIn =/= a MicIn.

Mic-in is COMPLETE, GARBAGE. Like true utter garbage. NEVER use it for guitar or any other sophisticated recording.

All Mic-in inputs are built with a very low quality pre-amp stage that will butcher and slaughter the quality of the incoming audio if you you apply any effects to the signal.

Ex: using distortion in a guitar going in Mic-In will sound like complete shit, and you will have high noise levels with high feedback.

The preamp built with Mic-in is pure garbage. If you don't have an interface, and can't afford one, use Line-in if you have one. Usually laptops don't have one, but they are 10 times better than Mic-in. They're not the best but you can work with them.

I used to try to work with mic-in and line-in but it never really did any justice so I eventually got an interface. I'd use Line-in but that actually got fried, so I was forced to use Mic-in, which creates abominational tones with amp sims.

In short: use Line-in if you can't afford an interface, but if you only have mic-in, save up, even if it's the cheapest interface like a Guitar Link.
