OK, ok. I can hear. Just not my insturments thru my computer. Here's the deal. I got a new soundcard, Soundblaster 16PCI, and thought that either the mic in or the line in would take the pre-amp out from my head for recording. For recording, I have Storm 2.0. No sound comes thru. Is there a setting I have to activate? Or did the cheap soundcard do me in?
