Hey guys! I recently saw the "Lick of the Day" contest and I SURE wanna participate.

The thing is that I'm getting a nice camera to record, but while I do so, I tried to do it on my computer.

I used like three different programs to record, but the thing is that when I play, the volume of my guitar goes low... Than lower... It's like I "saturate" my lap's soundcard.

I don't know if somebody has got this problem, and maybe it could be because of my EMG active pickups... If I'm not mistaken the output signal for this pickups is very high... Maybe I need a better soundcard if I wanna record plugged into my computer... sad.gif

Ideas to solve this? Is my "high pickups-input theory" right? dry.gif

I think you do...but even now with this soundcard I cant think why would your volume go down...can you wright the chain from guitar to comp...I mean guitar\cable\procesor...etc...that woud help sowing your problem...and yeah whta recording software did you try?

Via what card are you recording your guitar.

PS yes your EMG's can give an overload to your soundcard's line in.
