OK, currently I can plug my electric guitar into the line in of the sound card on the pc... nice, but a little quiet, I have to have the sliders all the way up to hear it at a reasonable level - and I do mean reasonable, not loud! So I am thinking I need a little inline pre-amp just to bring the gain up a bit so that it's easier to play along to my mp3's... So I started digging. I have come up with some fabulous pre-amps, major names and quality, incredible effects all with the accompanying heartstopping price tag. Does anyone one know if such a thing exists? A cheap but reasonable pre-amp just so that my guitar is a bit louder when plugged into the line in of the pc sound card.
