Ok, I record from my pedal (dunno how to do it through my amp) straight into my mic socket on PC then use Audacity to record. I have 2 problems though.

1 - Its incredibly overdistorted. Seriously, it sounds like some crappy MG. I even had the distortion set to 1 on my pedal and it still distorted. How can I fix this??

2 - I have a problem when multi tracking. Say I record a backing track with the drums and bass, then record a second track with the guitars. Well, I play along to the backing track I already recorded but it records the backing track as well as the guitar.

I may not have explained that too well so if you need clarification please ask.

Again, I use Audacity and plug my pedal straight into the mic socket on my Pc.

Thanks in advance for any help!

keep poking at it, its a free program, everyone has some wierd glitche with it, I bet noone can recreate your exact problem. Make sure your recording from different spots and dig through all the settings.

On the pedal, level is set at 5 (half volume not 5 o clock) and my mic level is about 5 as well.

With the second problem, the multi-track one, it didnt always do that, just recently started.....

1.turn down the recording volume of your pc. its in the control panel.
2. are you using a mic? i dont think so cause your not using your amp.

Plug into line-in. The mic input boosts the signal because microphones are usually very low volume.
