Supposedly I have an "HD video and audio recording" on my lap top but I don't believe that shit at all. My laptop is some newer HP computer that was around like $700. I've recorded three guitar covers and put them on youtube but **** does the quality smoke ****. I know its not my gear set up because I'm using a relatively good amp and a professional guitar pedal. Compared to the sound coming out the amp and the videos its hardly similar in tone. What do guys?

I'll post a link of one of the videos if you need to hear it.

What you really need is a new amp.

But yeah, your computer lied.



I normally use a bunch better amp but it was at my drummers house. The weirdest thing is that it sounds like the audio is fading in and out and rotating

Well you're using a HP... They're fairly notorious for going wrong. A lot. Could be a driver thing?
And how are you recording your audio?
Don't you hate it when you're reading a sentence and it doesn't end how you testicles.

Did you hear the one about the boy with the short atten

through the microphone. I would use my VYPR if i had it with me and I could make the computer recognize the usb output for it but sadly my computer refuses

I had this problem before. You need to reformat your drive.

All the best gear in the world won't make the shitty built in mic on your laptop sound good. If you want good audio, prepare to sink a few hundred dollars into actual recording equipment, such as a USB interface for at least $100, a half-decent mic for about $100, a decent cable for $20, a mic stand that won't break within 2 days for at least $30, and so on.

I WOULD use my peavy vypr. It has a USB output for recording and I do have some recording programs. My problem with that though is that my computer won't recognize it properly

Reformatting his hard drive would do **** all except screw TS over.

OT: Most laptop mics are only good enough to record the most kvlt of black metal. I'd suggest investing in a good mic (Like an SM57) or a USB audio interface.

No dude. Your gonna want to delete windows32.exe. That folder is useless and clogs everything up. ESPECIALLY if your using a HP. Good luck sweet prince.



I would rather remove my hard drive and rub a magnet on it, much more efficient for ruining my computer

C'mon man, you can't expect a laptop mic to sound any good.

Get your vyper connected properly, or buy a proper microphone and an audio interface. Probably the first option is going to be far easier. It's probably a driver issue... go get the latest update from peavey.

The webcam on even a top-range laptop is only useful for web video calls or voip, nothing else.

Your built-in mic is probably just shit. If you want to record your amp output in high quality your best bet is a proper microphone.
When some stranger on the internet says it is so, it must be so.
