Don't know if this is the correct place to post or not so Im sorry if it isnt! I wondered if anyone could help. I downloaded the programme Amplitube today so that I can try and play through my laptop. Currently I am plugging my guitar directly into my laptop through a 1/4 --> 1/8 inch adapter into the microphone socket. I am not using any amps, pre amps or midi converters. When I load up amplitube I get a sound but its not guitar like at all. It corresponds to when I hit strings etc, so I know its definately stemming from my guitar but it sounds more like a robot gargling water. Does anyone know why this might be happening and are there any solutions by adjusting the setup?

Many thanks!
