Sound card question
I use my computer to analyz sound in my video room.If I plug a USB cable into my computer (Dell dimension 3000)and attempt to use that cable to send an audio signal to my Preamp/processor I no longer can use the Line-in on the sound card.This is a plain vanilla mother board sound card.
If I use the line out on the back with the little 1/8th inch jacks the line in works fine.
You ask, why not use that one dummy.Well I'm trying to send a digital signal rather than an analog one to my preamp/processor.
The line in is used with a microphone to read the sound the computer generates.This process creates a loop to produce sound and analyz it.Thanx, I'm lost in the comuter world.
