    I managed to forge a cable that would go form my bass straight into the pc mic hole to allow clearer recording.

    All I did was cut the end (and jack) off one end of a normal instrument cable and solder on a jack from a dead set of headphones. Surprisingly it worked, it worked rather well actually :D

    Finally I dont have to cart my hefty amp to the Pc when I want to record. Give it a go if you like.

    ain't that something?

    I once made took regular radioshack speaker wire and put a 1/4" jack on one end, so I could plug my speakers into my amp, and my amp into my computer, so that I had an amplified 2.1 system without a reciever :p

    I later got a reciever :p
    but the cable did work.

    I also rigged up a fog machine once, using stripped speaker cable(just copper wire really) but, it completed the circuit for the fog machine and it worked....but then shorted out later.
