hi, i have tried recording on my bass about 6 months ago, but i was unsuccesful. THe closest i got was to plug my bass amp (and from bass) into my audio in on the back of my computer. This unfortuantly did not work. All i got was either a crappy sounding bass, that was kinda chopped up and everything or nothing. I think my probelm is not having a sound card, but having a motherboard with onboard sound. DOes this hypothesis seem correctt?
