Whenever I try recording my bass to Audacity, it comes up as totally distorted. It's wierd, I don't know how I should set it up to record I guess. Here's how I have it set up.

Schecter Stiletto Elite-5 ---> GK Backline 600 head ---> *running from the speaker out* to a 1/4" to 1/8" adapter to the microphone jack on my computer. I tried running it from the tuner out jack, but my computer wouldn't pick any sound up. The only way it'll pick up sound is when I have it set up like I described, but it's all distorted. Can anyone help me?

Just curious, I can't tell which jack is for the line in. Any clue as to what the symbol beside it would look like?

try the line in jack (it has a pic of a music note & an arrow).
Also, you might have to turn down the recording level to make sure it's not 'clipping'.

The jacks on any recent computer is color coated. Green is line out I believe, blue is mic and a pinkish red is line in... But I'm not positive. They should also have little pictures with arrows pointing in and out and a mic.

Ok, i recently lost all sound to my computer. After trying to plug it in and play and stuff, i can't get any sound out of my speakers. They won't even pick up the usual bit of static when you turn them up high.. I think i messed something up. I unenstalled audacity immediately afterwords. Any suggestions?

WELL THERES UR PROBLEM!!! No wonder u ****ed up ur computer's sound! What makes it worse is that ur amp has a DIRECT RECORDING OUTPUT on the front of it but i suppose u didn't want to waste a couple of quid on an XLR-jack cable. Sorry if i sound like a dick but that was a really bad idea- u should be glad ur soundcard is the only thing that stopped working.

But yeah, get a new soundcard, buy an XLR-jack cable and:

You fried your soundchip mate. I had a friend do that a few weeks ago, grab a new one, and read the post above.

Ouch. Anywho, how much would a new sound card cost? And by the way, I'm not from Australia, "mate." (in referrence to eddie) Maybe I should've listed the fact that I'm a total recording n00bcake in a previous post.
