The guitar cable jacks are too large to enter any socket in the CPU.How then do u connect a guitar to it?Is there some kinda interconnecting device?
Can someone provide step by step instructions on how to do it?Thanks
Guitars use sound cables that have a 1/4″ plug. Computer sound cards, on the other hand, in general use a 1/8″ plug. So, you need some kind of converter between your guitar and the computer.
Most computer stores have cables to make the connection between the 1/4″ and the 1/8″ plugs. You need a female plug for your guitar cable, so that it can be inserted in the connector. The connector needs a 1/8″ male exit that will connect to the sound card.
There are other options, however. Some external modules allow you to connect the 1/4″ and then to the computer via the USB port. These are a little more expensive, but result in better sound quality, because the conversion of signal is done digitally.
Here’s a link to the site that stated the above, along with a ton of other info and options:
