first of all i have a emu 0404 sound card and several recording preograms ex. traction sonar cubase. the problems that i am having are they way i have it set up is the audio out left and right chords are goign to my speakers and i have one 1/4 in in on the left which is hooke up to my guitar. It is making me switch the inputs when i want to listen to music or play the guitar i have to switch the settings and that is a pain. The other problem is i cant find the input for the guitar in the recording programs so that i can record stuff from it if ne one could help me that would be great. if u need more info just ask.
