Hello guys and girls.

So i'm looking at turning my pc into a bit of a recording/general use.

now i know alot of people use software to imitate amps pedal ect, i'm just wondering what software people use? i'm abit of a noob unfortunately when it comes to this side of things, also connecting the guitar to the pc?

do i use a 1/4 by 1/8 Lead?
or get a usb audio interface?

any ADVICE will be helpful.

Sorry if ive posted in the wrong group wasn't too sure in which to post this!

Never plug your guitar directly into your PC. It'll sound like shit and could break your sound card. You're going to need some sort of USB interface. I personally own a Line6 Studio UX2 (think I got it for about $300 give or take) and it's pretty good. Comes with a licensed copy of PodFarm which has a ton of amps and effects, and you can buy more if you wish. As for recording software, I hear Reaper is pretty good, but am yet to try it.
Recordings forum, interfaces sticky.
