Hi... I have a Givson acoustic guitar without pickups.I wanted to use my laptop as an amplifier/effects processor.The software i m using is AmpliTube. I tried using a microphone as an input but there is too much disturbance and it even amplifies the sound of my feet tapping! I saw a 'clip on pickup' at a guitar shop n it worked fine with a real amplifier. it looks like this http://espimages.biz/2225/I/253/0/SY-80.jpg Will using a pick up work on a laptop as it only has 2 inputs viz. speakers n mic. n no line in.i will be using a 1/4 to 1/8 conversion cable to plug it into my laptop microphone input. Will there be any lag in output?has any1 successfully tried a s/w as an amp/processor??
