    Line-In picks up Microphone Instead

    I'd like to plug my guitar into my computer, but when I select Line-in as the input the only sound being picked up is still being picked up by the built in mic and not line-in. This really sucks is there some config file for the different sound devices that I might be able to fix?

    System >> Preferences >> Sound >> Input Tab >> Connector

    There should be an option there to select the Line-in as your recording device.

    Re: Line-In picks up Microphone Instead

    Okay let me ask the question a different way. Is there any way for me to change the device settings for the ports on my audio device? They're simply pointing to the wrong bits of hardware, it should be a simple fix if someone could point me in the right direction...

    Edit: I'm researching .asoundrc.....stop me if I'm wrong

    Well, Ubuntu Studio has no problem with switching between my built-in mic and my line in (even when using the same kernel). Hello new favorite flavor of Ubuntu
