    Hi All - can anyone please help!!!

    I have connected my Synth (Korg Karma) to my PC via the line-in 3.5mm jack socket of my sound card.

    I can validate this as when I open the Windows XP Mixer panel and mute the 'Line In' channel, the sound dissapears from my PC speakers, when I 'un-mute' this, the sound from my Synth reappears...

    Thing is, I can't seem to record to any file from the line-in!! I have tried windows recorder and cooleditPro and I can't seem to get it to record. I'm obviously doing something wrong that I can't figure out... can you assist please...

    I have changed the connection from the ' Line In' to the 'Mic' input and though I can't hear anything through the PC speakers when I play the Synth, I can now record the (unheard) key presses!!! When I play back what I recorded I can hear this through the PC speakers...

    How do I record in CoolEdit Pro from the Line-In jack...?
