Does anybody know of a downloadable (free would be nice) programme that can be used to record my guitar onto my laptop?

How do you folks record youself if not onto your pc?

You need an interface where you can put your guitar in. I personally am satisfied with the POD Studio UX1, but you can of course go for the cheaper version POD Studio GX which has no microphone input. When you have this, you can download REAPER (free) which is a DAW, that means you can record yourself, import MIDI tracks and assign VSTs (virtual instruments) to them. You can find tutorials, hints, etc. here or here. smile.gif

Thanks for the info, Tolek!
Can this POD work with regular built-in sound card that most lap tops use?

You´re welcome. smile.gif
You can connect it via USB, so no need for a good soundcard. However, you need some headphones or monitor speakers in order to hear yourself.

POD Studio is a soundcard. It serves as and interface between instrument and PC by having standard 6.3mm mono female HI-Z inputs so you can plug in your guitar straight into the interface without the need of other devices (such as DIbox).

I recommend free recording software Reaper : http://www.reaper.fm/
+
audio interface like Pod studio ux1 (or even GX if you want only guitar to record)

Pod studio is a sound card (external) it connects to PC/laptop via usb. You can then root all the sounds from OS to go through it and just connect your pc speakers to the interface itself.

I recommend it, its simple to use , cheap and gives great results for recording.

One important thing about POD Studio (or any external USB interface) is the fact that laptop integrated soundcard and speakers will be obsolete, so you have to get headphones or speakers (or both) for monitoring your sound.

POD in combination with some sort of DAW (Nuendo, Cubase, Reaper etc) and you are all set !

A friend tells me right now that you may get a delay on the sound from the guitar if you go straight through the usb stuff, is this right?

Anyone that this happened to?

As usual it depends on the quality of your gear, I use a UX2 and get no delay through pod farm, but it really struggled with Fender Amplitude and I got bad latency, if your sound card has an onboard processor chances are it will be pretty good.

This depends on the strength of your laptops CPU and the strength of the sound interface. WIth good interfaces you have very small latency. Anything bellow 10ms is OK.

POD Studio can work without latency ONLY with POD Farm. If you load some other software like Guitar Rig or Amplitube Fender you will have more latency (more than 30ms), and possibly not being able to use them.

If you get a good external sound card like EMU0404 USB for example, you can run any third party software with latency less then 10ms and it will run smoothly. With 0404USB you get Amplitube LE and other various great software (among else Cubase 4 LE).

So the choice is up to you really. WHat do you want, how big is the budget, and what styles of music do you like playing.
