Record from my amp straight into my computer? I tried using my headset mic but it sounded like ****.
you need some recording software
You need a line-out/recording out/headphone jack on your amp into the line in on your computer. It will still sound bad if you do that though. The next best thing would be to buy something like a line 6 toneport and go from your guitar straight into the computer.
I have the same problem. Does an external speaker jack work?
