I'm pretty confident this is how i'm supposed to record from my amp onto my PC, but I just wanted to make sure. I'm using a Cube 30x and I'm going to connect from its "Recording Out" port to the "Line-In" port of my soundcard. Is this appropriate?

You need either a pretty good soundcard, or some kind of port that'll turn the signal from your guitar down. Lest you fancy frying your soundcard

Really? Didn't think a signal with a current suited for headphones would fry a soundcard...hmm, anyone else? ( as for now, i'm gonna take your word for it..)

I use my Microcube rec out to the line in of the PC and works great. And i don't think it will fry the soundcard, in fact, the signal of the guitar itself is weak for line in, so there's sometime when i wanna plug the guitar directly to the PC, i use the mic in.
Besides being a guitar player, I'm a big fan of the guitar. I love that damn instrument. Steve Vai

You'll be fine direct with that set-up. However, you may have more control with sound tweaking if you run into a small mixer first and then to your soundcard. Also, the higher quality the soundcard, the better sound results. But again, you will be fine with your set-up.

Yes, thats fine, but there are some issues with soundcard latency, complete pain in the arse and impossible if your tying to keep on time with a backing track.

I've never had that problem with my software. I run my mixer into my soundcard into cool edit pro, and there's no lag or delay.

Depends on the quality of your sound card.
AS for me I have the standard crap that came with my dell. =(

I'm on a G5 Imac - NEVER a latency problem - always had issues on my PC's but the Mac is great for sound in apparently. I have 2 modern amps and use the line out or headphone out on the amps to my SOUND IN using a 1/4" -> 1/8" mini adapter. I also run my LP copy direct too using Guitar Rig 2 and Amplitube 2 in Logic.

Mac is so sweet. I was a PC diehard for years (we called em Macintrash, etc) but once I started using Macs my PC's began to collect dust.
Now running an Eleven Rack with Pro Tools 10.3.3 - it's amazing and I'm having ball with it - worth every penny. PT 10 is tops IMO and the Eleven Rack is a work of art!

If it's a recording out, it won't fry the soundcard.
