I'm about to invest in a USB input for my guitar to record directly from my amp into the computer using Audacity (you know how it goes), but I'm worried that my soundcard is a piece of shit (which it is) and it won't read the USB input, not to mention all on my laptop and not a desktop

My friend says it won't affect anything being it's a USB, but it's very pricey and it would suck to waste so much money for something useless

GRACIAS!

If you're looking into recording, i have a us-112 audio interface which i record on to a laptop with and which sounds pretty good. Tascam also makes smaller interfaces if you only want to record guitar.

Just a suggestion, otherwise im not to sure about your problem

I do the best quality recording using a simple soundcard that came with my acer laptop, using the ASIO driver (ASIO has the lowest latency rate so i really suggest it). So basically all you need is audacity, a 1/4 to 1/8 inch adapter (which costs around 2 bucks), an amp with a recording output, and the ASIO Driver (which u can get for free here http://www.asio4all.com/)

I tried that out and nothing happened

I don't have a line in input on my laptop, just the microphone input, and I'm thinking that's the problem

not really, both the microphone and the line in are supposed to work.. Line in only has one channel so it's mono, if your amp is mono and you plug it in a microphone input, u only hear the sound coming from one speaker (if u have 2).. pm me with ur msn or yahoo address maybe i can help
