Hey guys,

Just like I can plug in my electric guitar to the Line In port on a Mac and play it through Garageband with a selection of amps and effects, I was wondering if I could plug it in to the Mic port on my HP Probook 4230s ( link: [forbidden link]) and play it. If I plug it in without opening any software, I can hear a electric guitar sound generated by Windows, but I want different amps and effects, so is there any programs that support me just directly plugging my guitar in? I tried Guitar Rig Pro 5, but I need some sort of audio interface or pedals, and frankly I don't want to invest in that. I tried running it through my Roland Mini Cube amp first but that didn't work. So what I am looking for is either:

1. A way to connect the electric guitar to GRP5 and listen to it without a audio interface, or some sort of workaround( I would prefer this because it has a wide range of amps)

OR
2. A program in which i can connect the guitar and listen to it without an audio interface.

If the program is good and there are at least 5 differnt types of amps, I don't mind spending some money on it (less than 500 dollars please). I should not have to use an AI.

I would really be grateful if you could help as soon as possible!

Reaper is an awesome program and is only $60, but I STRONGLY recommend an interface, it'll sound far better that way.

Alesis Guitar Link+! A lead to plug your guitar straight into a USB port. Comes with all drivers and you pick your own amps and FX from the selection available, all tweakable and you can record with it too! Excellent.

Thanks, I got a trial of it from the website, can you tell me how to set the basic thing up? I'm a bit confused.

You don t need a interface for GRP just Asio4all drivers



Thanks, trying right now, I got a copy of GRP from a friend and I'll test it right now. If it works I love you(not in a gay way )

Go to preference and set your input/output. then insert a track, turn on the playthrough on the track and arm it for recording. it also helps if you set the sample rate up, but I think you also have to do that in your computer's settings for it to help.
