So I turned my laptop into an effects pedal tonight by picking up a 1/4 inch to 3.5 mm jack (or whatever it's called) so I could line in directly to the mic port on my lappy. I decided to test it out with this song over a heavy metal backing track and even though the audio quality is shit with all the feedback from my laptop processor struggling with the effects I set it to use - I still want some not too harsh feedback

P.S. The program I used to get the effects was Gnuitar - a free app for Linux and Windows (and probably Mac too but I'm not sure). I use Ubuntu Linux.
