Use my computer speakers as an amp.


Hello Every1,

I am not sure if this is the right forum area to ask this or not. What I am tryin to do is, I wanna plug in my electric guitar to ma pc , I got myself a connector for that and it shows that its taking the input as I can see the bars move when I play it but I can't hear any output on the speaker. Kindly help me to redirect my audio input as audio output.

Thanks a lot.

OK I tried to run kmixer but this is what I get.

Code:
[root@rubolzz Genocide_Hoax]# kmix
unnamed app(3824): KUniqueApplication: Cannot find the D-Bus session server:  "Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken." 

unnamed app(3823): KUniqueApplication: Pipe closed unexpectedly.
Please guide me. I am using Fedora 14 with gnome not KDE.

To use kmixer : move sliders up/down.

Or rather, use alsamixer, and all you have to is to unmute the MIC/LINE IN to which you have attached your guitar.

By the way, there are a lot of good software effect processors for putting distortion and stuff on your instrument. Google it. For Fedora, Planet CCRMA is the place you're looking for.
