Why wont this work!

3.5mm aux cable.
It works for playing music from my comp on my amp
connecting my ipod to my headunit in my car, etc.


Amp: Line 6 spider 3, so I have the aux/cd/mp3 in, plugin.
I have that hooked up to the pink plugin (mic/line in) and i have it set up to line in and I event tried mic in.
and there's no sound/recording.

Amp is on, guitar is plugged in, I can hear the sound coming from the amp, it's just..not recording.
WUTDOIDO?

...and so help me if i read any comments about "line 6..yadayadayada."

right click your sound thing and set your recording devices. make sure its your amp and not your mic or anything
Jackson DXMG -> Vai Morley Wah -> Korg Black Tuner -> (Need a delay) -> Maxon OD808 -> BBE Sonic Maximizer -> ISP Noisegate -> Mesa Boogie Mark IV

Your computer is doing you a favor, thank it and treat it to some sweet sweet Japanese fetish porn.

The aux cable is an input not an output.

From my understanding the spider does not have an output that will work that way.

the wire from the amp should be plugged into the amp's line OUT jack.
My meh gear:
ESP LTD MH-400NT
Peavey Raptor Plus EXP
Digitech RP90
Digitech Bad Monkey
Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi (WTS)
Crate GT15 (SHIT)

GAS:
Peavey 6505 112 combo
MXR 10-band EQ
Ibanez TS-9
Boss HR-2
Compressor (open to suggestions)

You need to use the line-out of the amp to record.

There's only the cd/mp3/aux in
and then a "pod-style out/headphones."

I tried plugging my guitar into to the "guitar plug," obviously.
and then the "pod-style out."

Other then that there is no other place for the 3.5mm aux cable.

Its not a 3.5mm jack. Its a 1/4" jack. You need a adapter to plug into your PC.


Line-out of your amp into line-in on your PC. Get an adapter like this so you can plug the 1/4" cable into your PC - http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2062467

You found that out for yourself didn't you?

The other guy's right about the 1/4" headphones jack, it worked for me...

yay for pointless comments.


might as well post this in the thread while im looking for help.
i disconnected all my stuff from my computer and dusted it out blahblah and reorganized for my amp to come over next to me to record..which in turn doesnt work.

also.
now my wireless card wont connect to networks, but it picks them up fine.
my comp won't even connect to the internet via ethernet cables.

i've restarted my comp, disabled both devices on my side, reset the router.
wuts wrong?
my laptop is picking up the interwebz fine.
but not my desktop.
