I'm trying to record my guitar into Cubase. I'm using the ASIO4ALL driver which has an unusual digital noise when I use the driver as an input for an audio track.

The problem is I don't have an audio interface, so I just hooked my guitar into my practice amp and ran the headphone output of the amp into the line in input of my PC. I can hear my guitar on my speakers, but the audio track is not picking up any audio except for that horrible digital noise. Any ideas on how I can fix this problem?

I'm going to guess the "digital" noise is buffering, especially if you can hear parts of your recorded tracks. If it is entirely noise, that could be something more sinister like clocking, but since asio4all is pretty benign, it's probably buffering.

Try adjusting the ASIO Buffer Size, or Kernel Buffers and see if that helps or makes it worse.

Thanks, I fixed it. However it was not the "normal" buffer size. I checked the box that says Use Hardware Buffer, and set it to 15ms. This got rid of most of the noise, now it is only a very low hiss which can be removed with noise filtering.

Well, buffering anyway. Cool. Enjoy.
