I am trying to record bass onto my PC. Im very new at this and I need some help/advice with some questions i have. I have a list of programs I have and i dont know exactly what each does. I also have a passive direct box with a cable with a instrument jack on one end and a standard small headphone jack on the other side. Please explain to me what these programs do and how i can record bass onto my laptop with them. Here is a list of the programs.
