I have a really good soundcard. this is it.

I also use Amplitube 3 and have been using a Toneport GX from line 6 to connect my guitar to my pc and get output. However I now want to use my soundcard because I want to see if it sounds better. If I select the soundcard as I/O device in Amplitube I get no output . I think it is because my guitar is not plugged into the soundcard?

I need help on how to use my soundcard to get output from my guitar. Is this even a good idea??

I was just looking online and I think I need an 1/8" to 1/4" guitar cable and I just plug it into the soundcards input. But I dont know if it would be a better thing to do would it?

Unless the soundcard is meant to be used in that way, you'll likely overload the input circuitry.

That's not true. Most sound cards with a line in can handle a wide range of line level impendences. You're dealing with mili volts, not volts, so it wont hurt anything.

you record at a low level then just rely on the amp sims to amp it?


Sometimes, most times I use my SM-58 into a Mic amp, then line out the mic amp into my sound card. I have a bunch of amps, 5 to be exact, including the mic amp, so it depends on what I want to mic up.
