So I've tried recording into Audacity and just the default sound recorder, and either way i get a distorted version of what i'm playing, whether i'm playing it into the computer clean or actually distorted.

I'm recording from my guitar into my GNX3 and then into the microphone 1/8" jack on my laptop. I'm just using a regular 1/4" cable from the output of the GNX3 and then using a 1/4 to 1/8 adapter to fit into the jack.

One more thing, no matter what the volume is on the pedal, it still records the same, distorted volume on the computer.

What should I do?
Check out my music, if you please.

turn down the input volume on your computer

Sounds like your signal is clipping. Turn the signal down in Audacity, or turn the Line-in on your PC down until your not clipping anymore.
