Hello All

Had some good jams with friends recently and wanted a cheap home recording solution just to record bits and bob's of riff's etc...

Bought a guitar lead to audio jack and hooked the headphone's out of the amp direct into the laptop to record in Audacity

The guitar sounds great when played but there is this horrible buzzing directly from the off which can only described as the sound of pain lying in the background...

I'm a complete noob and im guessing its not as easy as just hooking it straight up from amp but was hoping somebody knows :

a: the cause of the buzzzzzzz

b: the cheapest option to elimnating the problem...

Thanks in advance

Can you post a recording of you playing and then of just letting the buzz go?

Could be a number of things....to much gain, line interference, blew up your input, etc.

Look up "what is a daw" and "what is an audio interface" and "what is a multi tracker" in google and you will find articles and forum posts across the Internet with tons of knowledge.

Edit: on phone so I didn't listen to link
