Ok so i have a dell inspiron 1520, a decent amp, a zoom g2 and an old washburn.

I just wanted to plug in the guitar from the zoom output into the computer and record songs but i'm getting a LOT OF NOISE !!!

And the recording sounds bad...so what's the cheapest way to set up a small recording studio as my band is looking to record a few demos and yes like all small bands, we are totally strapped on CASH !!!

Can anythin be done ??

and how do i eliminate the noise ??

by the BOSS Micro BR. 180 bucks for the smallest studio i've ever seen. ****ing beautiful sound. if you check their website they have a couple people who have done albums with it. you can plug direct and add effects or use the mic for like acoustic and ****. derfinately worth a check if you're serious.

How are you plugging it in? I'm assuming you're using a 1/4" to 1/8" adapter and plugging into the line in or mic on your PC soundcard.

What kind of soundcard do you have?

Well assuming you're gear works everywhere else without this noise, I would blame your laptops soundcard. The only thing I can think of is to download new drivers for the soundcard, but that may not help. Also maybe try turning the volume/ouput down on the G2.

It's probably the A/D converter in your soundcard. It's really not built for what you're trying to do. I know some people on here have had some success using that method though.

Maybe they can step up and leave a few comments for us!
