Microphone to Headphone
« on: April 21, 2005, 11:18:17 pm »
Okay, here's a question for all of you technical music or wiring furs out there.

I've got my current bass guitar and amp. The amp's nothing special, but it has a headphone jack so you can play silently, just for you. What I'm proposing to do, is take two ends, one as a microphone end, and one as a headphone end. I'm planning to link them together, thereby enabling me to play guitar straight to a music file. Okay... It all sounds good, but I have a few qestions. For an output to an input, would I have to switch the wires as to make incoming transmissions different polarity as outgoing ones?

I dont know if that made any sense... and I could probably buy one of these, for dirt cheap. But, I have plenty of cord lying around, and I'm a cheapskate when it comes to stuff I could build myself.  ^__^




You can mainly find me in Furtopia's IRC.

I use a headphone out from my PodXT and run it into  my computer audio interface with a straight guitar cord (Both connectors are 1/4 inch).  I think you could do the same to a regular sound card mic in.  The only thing you would need is the 1/4 inch to 1/8 inch adapter.

Good luck with recording.
