I am totally new to this recording thing.
I have a mixer, a laptop, with mics and all those good stuff.
Im using a recording program called Kristal.
Problem is when i connect the mixer to the laptop, the laptop wont pick up anything

Connection:
Mixer: tape out -> mic input laptop

That is what i read on the internet and i tried it didnt work. And yes i have mics connected and the mixer is on. And i tried going to the control panel and switching settings.

What is the problem? Any advise?

You need some kind of USB/Firewire recording interface like a Firebox (I own one and its great), or a standalone recorder will also do it if you wanna go that route (I own a Korg d-888, and its ok)
