I use Audacity to record simple demos and whatnot on my guitar whenever I come up with something worth recording (adding synths, recording bass over it, using a drum machine program, you get the idea!).
I use a two way cable with a different jack on one end to plug the guitar right into the microphone port of the computer (the pink one, right? ) and then set it to record from Mono Out or Wave Out (or whatever one works - I can't tell right now, I'm on a different computer )
However, while recording is in progress, I can't hear the guitar through the speakers, so it's hard to tell how it's turning out, I just have to kind of hope for the best. But when I was recording at my friend's house using the same program, the guitar roared through the speakers nicely so I could tell exactly how the various effects were sounding etc.
Are there any Audacity users out there or anyone at all that could help me? I just want the sound to play through the speakers while I record.
