Hello everyone,

I was trying to record my guitar-output via my notebook but somehow it won't work. This is my set-up so far:

Guitar -> Amp (Peavey Vypyr) -> Notebook

Let me say the Vypyr has a headphones/recording output wich I conected with my notebooks mic-in. Thing is, I get some sound but its intermitent.

Any ideas what I could do? Could it be the driver? I've checked so far and there are no updates to it.

Thanks in advance!

You can't. The mic input is not designed for this. You need an interface. Go read the sticky.

You absolutely can, that's just plain unhelpful.

It'll probably be rather noisy though, I wouldn't expect wonders.

What software are you recording into? No need for drivers if you're using your laptop's standard mic input.

I was planing to use Audacity. But as I said, I have problems as soon as I plug my amp into my laptops mic-in.

I have two audio-recording-devices to choose from on my laptop:
the internal microphone and stereomix. Problem is, the internal microphone has to be activated in order to record any sounds, even those pluged directly into the mic-in (already tried deactivaging the internal microphone and activating stereomix). The next problem is that the sound, as it is played back by my laptop, is highly disrupted.

I'll stick by what I said in the interface sticky. It can work, but most of the idea I have no idea how and it's next to pointless to try and fix it when you can buy the worlds cheapest interface and get way better results.

Well, can you recommend me an interface that is any good? And somehow affordable?

He's already done that in the sticky.

Yup. The first interface on that sticky will run you all of $30. You can apparently get unbranded versions too which are exactly the same but way cheaper.

Yeah. go on ebay and search for 'guitar link'. It's a little USB guitar interface that you can get for around $10, and it does the job fine. Behringer sell the exact same product with their own branding, but it's quite a bit more expensive.

....and that's the first interface mentioned in the sticky.

Well technically the one I mention is the branded one, not the unbranded one.
