Hey all, I am trying to record with my bass, i have: Yamaha RBX354 via active jack ---> Laney HCM30 amp via external speaker jack ---> Toshiba Laptop via line in (mic jack) I use cool edit pro to record and all it does is record noise, noise and more noise. Tried different jacks on my amp because i have 3 jacks "direct out" " external speaker" "head phones" External speaker seems to be the best suited because the others don't make any noise at all. I've tried adjusting my volume settings but got no where. Can anyone tell me the most easiest and simpliest way of recording with a bass? I've read the sticky FAQ thread but it's all mumble jumbo to me Thanks!
