I was wondering if it was possible to record by putting a 1/4 adapter in the back of a valveking in the speaker jack then connect it using to the microphone port in the back of a computer using something like this http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2102949

or just using something like this

you'll fry the crap out of your computer.. the signal carries a current to push speakers... that fries stuff. The way to record it is to put a mic in front of the speaker.. recording isn't easy, that's why people pay big bucks to get their stuff recorded
My Guitars:
Gibson Les Paul Studio
Epiphone AJ
Ibanez Strat Copy

Amps:
Orange Tiny Terror Head
Old beaten up Peavey cab
Marshall MG30DFX

that would also fry your output transformer. you power amp needs a dummy load at least.
you could do the same thing with a pedal, but it would sound like bigfoot giving birth.....

Before I broke down and bought some ok recording equipment I bought an SM57, a direct box, and an xlr to 1/4" cable and a 1/4" to 1/8". It'll record stuff but it won't sound too great as there is no mic-preamp but if all you want to do is get ideas down and maybe post some stuff for people to give a little listen, it would work fine.

I would spend some time reading thru the Stickies in the Riffs and Recordings Forum here on UG, get a feel for how people are doing it and if you still have problems, then come over to the Valveking Thread MkII and I'll help you out.

But yes, generally, there is Nothing you can plug directly into a tube amp and expect to record from it. I'm glad you asked first.
