Use your Mac as an amplifier
Authored by: arekkusu on Dec 16, '03 11:45:52AM

This will sound terrible. The line-level output of a guitar is too low for the Mac's line in. It will be audible but if you do any processing of the signal (for instance, with Amplitube) there will be very bad gate noise from the weak signal.

A much better idea is to get a cheap pre-amp, or run your guitar through your home stereo's line in, then to your mac.

Another way to boost the sound is to run your guitar through an effect pedal set to bypass, or a multieffect set to boost the volume only.
