I own this amp and I'd like to ask you how to connect it via pc for recording.
Please be as specific as possible.

Thank you.

DISCLAIMER: I'm no expert.

You use a good microphone plugged into the computer...UNLESS YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE DOING do not attempt to connect a 100W amp to your computer!

There are many sites that cover home recording nearly all the ones I have seen, suggest you get a book that covers the basics - and there are many...

Grab a mike plug it into the pc - a set of singstar mics off ebay, are very cheap, go for the wired ones. You can always upgrade to different mics later.

Grab Audacity from sourceforge, install it, learn how to use it. put one or both of the mics near the amp.

Rock!

play around with the position of the mics and recording options.

You record the sound the amp makes not the sound that comes from the pre amp...ie you don't plug an amp into the recorder/pc

If you don't know exactly what you are doing, you could damage your computer.

Professionals almost always go with the "stick a mic in front of the amp" method.

Lots of folks here use Audacity
It's free, and does a good job.
