I bought a mic, and it fits in my guitar amp, but it has an attachment, for the computer.

On the back theres 5 slots, red yellow blue black and green.

Greens my speaker input. But were do i put the mic? I have audacity

EDIT: was told to maek it in here and not music talk.

Also I havent touched preferences so I am not sure is there anything else I must do?

So your mic has a 3.5MM jack (like the ones on iPod headphones)? It should go in the microphone input on your computer.

you have to be recording for it to show lines i think.

you have to go into your sound card settings and turn on your mic input...Depends on what sound card you have... if its a sound blaster you should have a prog called an "audio console"... otherwise something along those lines. FYI don't expect miracles from this sort of setup

or else go into control panel in windows (if you're using a pc) and find the audio properties..should be under there

I just want something to show people how i play, to see if i play any good.

Could some one give me some instructions in depth over night? I gotta go but thanks if you can!

hey man, i use audacity too, i record guitar thru the red mic input, you can get a decent sound out of it too if you have a decent mic. im getting a mic preamp so i can put it directly into the soundcard blue input, (line in).
make sure (in your preferences, that the recording device is sound mapper, and that its set to mono (1 channel)
make sure your mic is turned on (if has switch), yes, it sounds stupid, but i have done it many times. haha.
and
this might be your problem, which is what i did when i first started using it.. make sure on audacity, that the mic input level is turned up.
and theres a drop down bar next to the mic input level that u can click on, make sure that says microphone.
that should do it if those are all checked.
happy days.

also. in audacity go to file (or whatever tab it is), preferences, go through all the tabs and make sure the settings are right e.g. your driver is selected

you need to select the microphone input as your line in device in audacity. Go to preferences, or settings or something and change it there.

Heres how you do it

Go into your control panel then sound, speech devices etc...

Then sound and audio devices

Then go to the audio tab

Then choose your default sound recording output thingy.

Thats what I had to do after I installed my one...unless you need a converter or something im not sure
