Hey, I recently jumped into the recording scene after playing guitar for about 4 years. I was on a budget so I purchased the MXL 990/991 kit and M-audio buddy pre-amp. However, I am at a total loss with what cables I need and how to hook it up! I have tried other forums for help but they weren't very helpful. Here's the situation. I want to run it through my sound card, unless there is another option one could suggest? Will it really ruin the quality? Asus K8V deluxe motherboard. what cables do I need? links would be most helpful! and these are the ports I'd be using I assume. Any help would be most appreciated! THANK YOU! EDIT: would 2 1/4" to USB's be okay? Or should I invest in a better sound card? what should I do?
