Recording into computer

Discussion in 'Recording Gear and Equipment [BG]' started by metallicarules, Jun 27, 2001.


  1. My band is looking to record some songs we wrote onto the computer and I was wondering, would it work to record if we bought a special cable to connect the headphones output on our amps to the mic input on the computer? It would be very nice if we could do this because I'm sure we would get much higher quality recordings than if we just used a mic.

    it should work fine, as long as you like the tone coming out of the headphone jack of your amp. Also see if you can get a strong enough signal through the line in, because you get less noise that way than through the mic input.
