Hey, just a quick question. I'd like to record my bass on computer. I tried connecting the bass directly to the line in and mic inputs (with a 1/4" to 1/8" thing) and nothing works. Basically, my bass is plugged to the computer with no pedal or outboard preamp, as well as no amp. Last time I used my amp's line out to my computer's line in, I fried the amp. Either way, I have no amp at home, so that option would not be available to even try again. Long story short, do I need some kind of intermediary to be able to record, such as a pedal or outboard pre between the bass and computer? Any help is appreciated.
