i just installed amplitube. and im using a 1/8th to 1/4th plug to plug my guitar into my mic line on my laptop. when amplitube starts i get major sound trouble. its a horrid sound. ive tried to fix it in audio options in amplitube but still a problem. ive tried this on my normal PC too and it has the same sound issues. heavily distorted weird sound i cant explain it. i have looked at FAQs but havent seen this problem

Your latency settings are too strenuous on your pc. In my experience, when I try to get it to have too low an amount of latency, my pc can't handle it. When I use a USB interface, or external soundcard, I have no problems, integrated soundcards are probably the worst for recording.

Vista 64 bit requires quite a bit of ram, but I think it's just vista in general, I don't know if they support amplitube 2 on vista yet. As for the laptop, what I said earlier is possible.

I stand by my ram reasoning. My Vista Ultimate 64 system requires at least 2 gigs to keep everything running, and with 2 gigs left over, it might not be enough to keep up with Amplitube with lots of options turned on.. I'm not sure about your rig though. What's the processor clock?

My amplitube works fine, except I use an external soundcard. Are you plugging into the line in, or mic in?

its a quad core. my sound card doesnt have a line in it just has a mic in. and i doubt 4gb is the reason. its defe an issue with 64 bit vista and sound drivers or something

Have you tried installing the ASIO4all drivers?

Well I have a MacBook and my Amplitube sounds great even when I use the internal soundcard...

Well, Macs are among the industry standard to audio work, not to say that PC's can't do it, but Macs, in my experience, don't do that well.

Using the mic in is not a good idea, it's not meant to be used for something like Amplitube.

If you check the "How to connect my guitar to my computer" in Amplitube, using the mic in has a big no-no on it. Its happened to me, you might have to decrease the gain of the mic input.

well that might be your problem then. Guitar pickups, belive it or not, are actually quite a bit more powerful than the type of mics you plug into the mic jack on a PC. So i think the input level might be too high. Either find a line in port or try lowering the gain on your PCs volume controls.

Well, the asio4all would just help with latency.

You can find them with google. www.asio4all.com
