I didn't get any responses so far at ActiveBass, so I'll try my luck here. I know it has been explaned to me, but I still don't understand. Does the bass actually need to connect to the computer? If so, I don't see a hole that would accomodate the cord. Do I need a microphone? I'll need to buy one if I do. I guess I need someone to explain all the connections to get me started. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
