My computer speakers have gotten really bad but will not be replaced anytime soon (due to job situation). It's actually the sub that has gone bad. Does this have any effect on the recording quality as I am using the line in? The problem is that I am getting some distortion when I am not using it. I do not have the volume all the way up on anything either so now I'm grasping at straws. I don't think it is related to my guitar or my effects unit as I have the sound I want when played through my amp. Thanks for any advice you have. smile.gif

The problem is that what you hear is affected by the speakers, and if you can't hear your tone/mix properly, chances are that it won't sound good on other speakers that do work properly.

I did not even consider that. Makes perfect sense! Thank you! smile.gif

A nice pair of headphone should do you fine, or at least hold your mixing needs until then.
