RECORDING GUITAR USING AUDIOPHILE FIREWIRE AND GUITAR RIG 3

Hi, is it possible to record guitars using RCA ins? Do I need another interface with 1/4 jack ins or something else? I used to have line 6 pod and was using its spdif out to communicate with the sound card spdif in. Everything worked flawlessly for me then. Now I would like to try guitar rig 3. I want to use the sound card as the interface and plug my guitar directly into it.
Any tips?

Many thanks

I've ran the audio in on my sound card to my mixer and had the guitar on the mic in.  I've also ran the line in to a small cracker amp.  Keep it turned down. If I would directly connect it use an adaptor.  I haven't tried using a 1/4 to 1/8 adapter and directly connected to it as I wanted to control the tone. I don't see why it wouldn't work.  Keep everything muted and turned all the way down when you first connect it.  Then start raising volumes slowly  I will try and report back As far as spdif you're just recording analog to digital conversion.  I get more realisitc sound just keeping it analog til it hits my line in.  Have a quality sound card.  Not some walmart special.  I use Adobe Audition 1.5 to multichannel record.

1) how to make my amp record....because its not working when i try... 2) do i have to a cord in line 1 and 2??? 3) do i have to plug in the cord in :.....line in or line out??????


You will use microphone with balanced XLR connector into the XLR mic input. Note, the ALpha does NOT have phantom power so you cannot use condenser mics.

A guitar can be plugged into the hi-z instrument 1/4 inch jack on the left front of the unit.

To use the line 1/4 inch inputs you will use BALANCED TRS 1/4 inch cables from your source.for these channels. The level on these needs to be line level.

The line outs are for sending audio out to an amp. There appears to be RCA outputs you can use as well.

I am not sure what you mean by making your "amp record"... An amp PLAYS the audio, usually into a speaker.

If you are trying to play a guitar through your amp AND record, then you will connect your guitar to the Alpha, the amp input will have a cable from say Line 1 OUTPUT and when recording wou will have the echo feature on so your guitar is passed through to the amp.

How to record Guitar sound on a computer


<p>Line-in <br /> <p>1. Buy a software package for recording music, if your budget allows. Recording music software is specifically designed for recording musical instruments formed. He cannot offer features found in common software audio. Alternatively, an audio recording program for free to get the music recording software than your needs and budget. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Buying a guitar cable to your computer if you use an electric guitar. Connect the larger end of your guitar amplifier and the small end into the computer microphone / line-in. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. For an external microphone when a traditional guitar. Plug the microphone into the computer microphone / line-in. A stereo microphone is a natural sounding audio file, due to the dual microphones. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Open your audio recording program, which recognizes the device connected to ensure the microphone / line-in. Pull the cord, again if it does not recognize the device. Change the settings for the recording program to your needs to adapt, you can file type for quality change, and the recording is mono or stereo and audio level. Press the Record button, then started playing guitar. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Press the "Stop" button when you finish the game. Some programs can automatically be prompted to save the file; others may be the audio file first. Press "control" and saving "S", if not prompted. <br /> <p><br /> <p>Digital recorder <br /> <p>1. Buy a stand-alone digital recorder, if you do not want a guitar cable or an external microphone. A stand-alone digital recorder is small enough to fit in your pocket and can be placed anywhere without the need hampered by a cable. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Set the digital recorder on a flat surface. Press the record button. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Press the digital recorder, "Stop" when finished. Connect the recorder to the computer with data cable. Open the device by clicking on "Start" then "Computer" and double click on the recorder in the "Removable Devices". Copy the file from the recorder to your computer. Turn off the burner when you are ready to save battery power.<br />

I have a Fender G-DEC Guitar amp and it has an output for recording, can I connect it to the BOSS MICRO guitar input? The Fender amp has many rhythm functions which I am very familar with, besides it has...


you can use the line in/mic stereo input, but you will have to turn the input level way down to around 1 or 2.

i assume that the record outputd a re rca outs. you can get a rca stereo to 1/8 inch stereo adapter, like the ones they use to connect protable cd palyers to recievers, and then get a 1/8 inch stereo to 1/4 inch stereo adapter form radio shack to complete the connection.

Samson G-Track mic does not work with garageband effects


Look man just use the input as a way for your pre-amp's to plug in.... you don't want any of those built in guitar effects anyways... You just need a good multi pedal.. There are many good recording Pre-amps out there that work great and are fully adjustable for easy recording.. You can do what you want but, I think you will like the sound of pre-amp effects pedals in your computer set up....

Thats just a tip
