Hi,
I have fender cd-60ce (acoustic electric guitar) and I want to connect it to my computer. I have external sound-card.
I connect the guitar with cable to my computer in line-in port, and install several guitar programs: GTR 3, Guitar Rig 4, AmpliTube 3
I also install asio4all drivers.
when I turn it all on, it doesn't make sound ... what should I do now, what settings should I make in this programs and which one is the best ?
tnx

Step 1: Stop connecting directly to your computer.

Step 2: Go to the Recordings forum and read the stickies. All your questions will be answered.

I can record through a 1/4" phono-to-usb adaptor cable, direct to my sound editor, no problem. However, because I use usb speakers on the computer I have to physically disconnect those before I can use usb as a recording input. It took me a while to figure that out. Even if I used speakers that went to the audio out socket, I would still have a problem trying to use the computer as a real-time guitar amplifier with this cable because of latency problems. I haven't done any serious recording recently, but I used to use the mic input with a suitable preamp/buffer.

Most O/S will only allow one USB audio device, as you have found out! The OEM soundcard in most computers has about $0.69 worth of componetns, and is made for A/D-D/A conversion and production of the 'beeps and boops', streaming video sound, etc. For good music production, you neeed a soundcard (or external audio interface) that is made for this.

You haven't told us what 'external sound card' you are using, but make sure you have it selected as both your input and output device - monitors or headphones should be plugged into it.

If you have an external sound card then why are you connecting you guitar to the line-in port on your computer. Are you using a 1/4" converter jack? Don't! Get a USB audio interface and also once you have decided on the amp modeling program you like best please buy it, it's the right thing to do.
