I want to be able to push a "record" button and forget about it while I jam for a couple hours at home. I have a simple HP laptop (model: 15-f113ca) with a headset / mic slot, USBs and HDMI. My amp (BG250) has a balanced output slot with pre and post EQ direct out. Also, my bass is active (SR305DX). What would I need to be able to record my bass (bass with my effect pedals ) on my laptop without spending much money? I was thinking that I just need a wire, either to go from my amp's DI out into my laptop via small mic slot or USB slot (I dunno...I've seen guitar to USB instrument cables recently...) and download some software like Audacity. Any budget minded ideas are appreciated, thanks.
