hey everyone
before you say anything ive read most of the stickied topics, and its alot of information to grasp at one time, but i got a vague idea of everything

well im trying to record
my guitar into my computer.

Things i have tried

* connecting guitar using 1'8 cable to 1'4 then directly connecting to sound card, recording using audacity.
*Doing the same above, but using a floor pod plus, which has amp models and cabinets, i still get a muddy sound when recording.
^ that sounded bad.

ive fiddled with the settings for hours, and ive tried alot
and have spent many hours researching, but i cant find the right rig.


my current Gear
*Guitar
Ibanez rg 120



Epiphone sg-400


*Amp
Yamaha Fifty 410- 50 Watt


*effect pedal
Boss-Metal Zone Mt2


idk if it was necessars posting my gear, but just did it anyways


ive heard about things like stealth plug, which is a usb interface that connects to your comptuer, but have heard the quality isnt the greatest.

basically my intention is to record youtube videos.
ive used my webcam, and its built in mic to record, but the sound comes out horrible
ive tried many things and its very frustrating.


my budget is around 150$

thank you in advance for any help.
your truly,
a confused musician

You need a usb or firewire interface. You could go with the pod studio ux1. Good quality, low price.

The input on the computer simply isn't good enough to make good quality recordings.

I suggest an EMU 0202 audio interface. It's fairly low in price and works very well. If you can, get a Shure SM57 mic to use with it. This will let you mic your cab which sounds better most of the time....and is a must have if your amp doesn't have any record out.

The Line6 Toneports are not all that great and I suggest staying away from them TBH...

To record a video you may want to check my youtube page as I have a set of videos under "Better Audio For Your Videos".

You will want to capture audio with the interface and video with the webcam. Sometimes the computer wont allow two programs to work at the same time and so if that's the case, a video camera with on board storage may be a good thing to invest in.
