What can I expect from this?
This guitar to USB adapter lead lets you connect your electric guitar or bass to your computer. Other line-level instruments or audio devices that have a 1/4-inch (6.35mm) mono jack port can be connected too. The adapter lead is five metres long, with a USB connector on one end and a 6.35mm (1/4-inch) mono jack on the other. It is compatible with PC and Macs and plug and play, so you don’t have to install any drivers to start using it straight away. The lead records in studio-quality 16-bit at 44.1kHz using the internal analogue-to-digital converter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was very glad to see this work with my venerable Macbook Pro A1211, there was a bit of latency at first, but when I unplugged and put it back in, it was perfect. I think it has a little sound-to-noise ratio thing going on, but I play at crazy overdrive levels at times, with normal settings and effects, it is fine. I'll just say, for any Mac users who may read this, I found that each time I plugged in the lead that I had to change the audio driver and mae sure that the output was still set to system/built-in speakers, for some reason the Mac thins the lead can be used to output audio!! But this may be my old machine and it using Garageband '08 on Snow Leopard 10.6.8.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This works fine on Linux (Ubuntu 10.10) Just need to use the Jack audio system.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I've got one of these and using it with Logic on a Mac is hopeless. The latency seems to increase the longer the driver is running. So while it does function to get audio into a computer it's pretty useless for multi-track recording.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This works effortlessly with garageband on a mac & also if you have the usb camera connection kit it works with garageband on the ipad too. Very handy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for guitar players that own a MacBook. Easy to use, just plug and play. Next day delivery. Superb!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from i have to agree with the other comment about latency issues. i have to keep unplugging and putting it back in and it just gets annoying when you're recording for a long while. also it seems to work whenever it wants to, sometimes it'll be pretty clear, sometimes it'll buzz like crazy. it's great at first because it seems like a great fix for avoiding using a lot of equipment to use your guitar with your laptop, but after a while you realise that it's not a miracle product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You must have Good tiny thing that allows you to use your PC/Mac as Guitar/Bass FX processor. I am using WIN7 and this things works good. Plug and Play drivers. However you must set up it on your own. Firstly, you have to install asio4all to get rid of latency/glitch issues(google to find tutorial how to work with it) . Secondly, you have to setup few things in sound settings start/control panel/sound. There click Recording and double-click Microphone (USB audio device underneath) Next click Custom and deselect AGC(Automatic Gain Control) because it sets gain not in a right level. Now click Level there will be microphone scroll for now it is GAIN control. I am using Squier Strat and I set the level on 5.Thirdly, you have to install DAW(e.g. Repear) with VST(e.g. Amplitube, Guitar Rig) or their Standalone version(google again how to work with it). Cons: it it glitching sometimes. Because of operation it creates small but noticeable noise when you monitor via headphones. Using speakers you will not notice it. Company do not have it own website where you can find manual, drivers etc. Manufacturer does not include manual, set-up guide. Overall, this is good piece of gear to practice you guitar/bass pluging in into you computer turning it into digital effects processors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy with this purchase I bought this over three years ago and I have used it almost none stop since. Only today I discovered that it had stopped working properly due to maybe a loose wire inside but with all the travelling it has done and all the amazing quality things I have recorded since I first bought it I would recommend it to any guitarist. I'm gonna pick up a brand new one in Maplin and I'm glad they are still selling today

We would advise to check the default sound device is the PC speakers whilst the item is connected - if not please set this to default.

When I tried to use this for recording guitar tracks in garage band, the tracks had a high pitched buzzing noise in the back which got louder on tracks with distortion. Do you know why this happens and is there a solution? 

Asked by: Chez
This would be a ground loop, to remove you would need to use a ground loop isolator.
