I put a lead from my amps mic and that goes into my laptop. I use audiocity ( i think its called that) and when i us effects it goes really horrible like a jet engind sound.

What software can pick up the recording well?

Any other ideas?

The program is called Audacity. You might want to try Reaper, it sounds better to me than Audacity. Your main problem is the lack of an interface though.
