    either thru the microphone jack or (preferably) the line-in one.

    we discussed this a looong time back... look for one of the discussions like 'recording thru the computer' somewhere in these forums.

    Use a preamp like Rocktron Intellifex or something.. Or a TC Electrinic G Major.

    Use a Noise gate Pedal from BOSS.. Rs 2600 Ex-bangalore..

    Well I have a preamp and a noise filter, I built it myself. Will try it and get back with the results.

    Your Sound card may not support RTP or Real Tiem Processing.. Use an ASIO driver for your sound card adn try again..

    @ Jijo Please post the same in the other forum where we posted the circuit diagrams.. ??

    Yes, I use PC as guitar amp. All you need Windows XP/2000
    (optional 98SE/ME with wdm drivers for your sound card, no ASIO needed)
    and realtime effects software GuitarFX 3.04 from http://GuitarFX.Net
    It's free!

    Also you could read this article:

    ENJOY!

    Amplitube is better.. No absolutely no Delays..

    But on my PC/Windows XP/C-Media sound card GuitarFX works without delay too. And GuitarFX is free, but Amplitude price is $300, so if you have $300 you definitely could buy Line 6 POD 2 wich much more better any software processor!

    Thats True.. I got amplitube free with Pro Tools Digi 002.. But the trials also work amazing..

    Have you tried T Racks??
