What is the best way to record your bass tacks into your computer?

    I tried using this poopy adapter for a day and it doesn't work well at all. I'm trying to find a good way to just plugin and record but everything seems so complicated. Any ideas (keep price in mind).

    I've used the M-Audio Fast Track Pro and the Focusrite Scarlett Solo. USB interfaces. M-Audio requires software. Focusrite doesn't. The Focusrite sounds better but has (for me) serious latency on a Windows machine. Works fine on a Mac though.

  5. If price is a serious concern, look into a cheap Behringer interface - should do the trick. Beyond that, a DAW (I'd recommend Reaper for function and price). Find yourself some free VSTs, and you've got a completely serviceable setup for recording.

    I've recorded my basses directly through a Presonus Audiobox USB into Cubase 4.0 LE (which came with the interface; those come with Studio One now) with no issues.
