This question already has an answer here:
I am a beginner guitarist. I have an electric guitar and I recently downloaded the Amplitube software. Now I want to connect my guitar to my laptop computer. After some research, I discovered that there are two major ways to do this -
- via the USB port (using a Guitar-to-USB Interface)
- via the the mic-in port (using a 6.3mm (1/4") to 3.5mm (Mini) Headphone Adapter)
Please explain (in detail) which would be a better choice. Also please suggest a few good and affordable (I am not very rich) products available in the market for each category.
