After reading some and looking online, I see that I either need to get an adapter and use a mic direct to my usb or get an audio interface that will let me set up a mic so I can then use cube base le to record my guitar work.
I was hoping that there was a way to just record my guitar direct using the laptops built in mic but it looks as though that isnt how it is done.
I want to record my parts as I write them for future reference and so I can convert them to audio files I can send to members of my band.
What is the least expensive way for me to set up to do that?
Also, I bought a Line 6 Spider V modeling amp that came with cube base le, the amp has xlr outs, both mono and stereo, I have used them at gigs and run direct to the board, is this a better way to record with this amp and cube base?
I am using this amp connected by usb to my pc anyway, and I had hoped that with that connection, I could capture my guitar direct, without having to buy any other hardware.
Is there a way to do that, or maybe to run the xlr outs to a usb adapter and have cube base le see that as an input?
If not I am assuming my best bet is to buy a cheap $100 audio interface that will let me connect a mic to it?
I really appreciate any help please, I am a noob to all this part, and really just want to record easily and quickly on my laptop, nothing fancy I dont plan to mix and put together songs etc… I just need an old school recorder but on my laptop.
Im running a Toshiba laptop running Win 10.
Any information would be great,
