Why would you want to do that?

Plug in your line out to the mic hole.


Btw as a note to everyone, your friend is ALWAYS wrong!

No, go to preferences. It'll be called stereo mix or something like that.

It's fucked on Vista so I hope you aren't using that.

No! Put a 1/4 to 1/8" cap on a cable- stick the big end in the headphone jack of your amp and the little end in your computer.

You shouldn't even need to do that. It's a workaround though.

EDIT: oops, yes you do to record off an amp.
