Hey, can someone link me to a thread that have the steps to setting up a virtual amp and the like

#1
Does anyone have a thread link to the steps to connecting a guitar to the PC and using the PC's speakers as an amp?

Today I'm working on trying to get my PC speakers as an amp for recording and general practice. I have a 10w amp without a distortion knob so that sounds pretty stooly. Lol, so far have ASIO4all and Reaper while watching some youtube vids I'm getting somewhere. But now I've come across some issues like connecting my guitar to my PC will cause damage to it.. which I don't believe is true. Also, is my guitar supposed to be plugged in as line in or mic if it directly to the PC?

Thank you

" connecting my guitar to my PC will cause damage to it" that's the most bullshit sounding thing I've ever seen in my life.

I can' say for 100% but I don't think it matters if it's though the mic or line in. Changing that never changed the sound of my guitar or anything when I do but I'm not using ASIO4all so that might change things.

k.lainad Can you buy it for me or tell me how to use my speakers as one?

money doesn't grow on trees, pal.
what do i look like? a charity?

but to answer your question, you can always use a Behringer Guitar Link USB and guitar rig 5 software, that does work for me, use your speakers as normal. Looks like you know what drivers to use and such, so that's fine. Using guitar link won't hurt your PC, you can pick one up from ebay/amazon for like 40 bucks easy, stay away from the cheap, generic ones.

k.lainad I can't afford that. And lol, I uninstalled guitar rig 5 man :/ it is not free-requires activation or it shuts down after 30mins. Free is the only option I have right now. Btw, before you mention spending, I'm fully aware there is a direct relationship between resource input and quality of what you get.

Yea I felt the same way when I read that. I have it set to line in. Kind of stuck right now on getting VSTs
