    Can someone please tell me how to input my bass into my pc? I bought a 1/4 to 1/8 adapter and put it in the mic input, but nothing. Any help?
    thanks

    Try the "line" input on your soundcard.
     
  3. Are you setting the input for recording to line/mic within Acid? If you're using the built-in soundcard you'll need to double click on the speaker symbol and go to the recording tab on the properties box to set what the sound source is for recording.

    Have you taken a look at the FAQ? There are some good resources and advice there. Check out the Computer Music link for recording newbies. http://www.computermusic.co.uk/basics/basics.asp

    Good luck!
