i know it's a simple problem, but i've been trying to fix it for hours and nothing happens.
since i don't have a pre-amp, i improvised one with an amplifier. i don't care too much, for now, about the quality of the sound of the recording, as long as i get the freaking sound. but here's the deal: i plug my guitar to the amplifier, and the amplifier to the sound card, but there's no sound coming out of it. could i actually improvise a pre-amp with an amplifier? if so, what could be the problem?
my system: audiophile 192 in a pentium 4, 1.60GHz
, 512mb of RAM, very little space left (8GB) on the HD.
that's it for now.
