Beginner’s guide to Cakewalk softwareAudio ► Connecting an instrument, home stereo, or microphone to your sound card

The 1/8 inch plug should be plugged into the sound card’s Line input, although plugging into the Mic input will also work. If you use the Line input, make sure you have selected Line-In on the Windows Record Control dialog box (Windows Mixer). If you use the Mic input, select Microphone. To open the Windows Mixer—double-click the Speaker icon that’s on your Windows taskbar to open the Play Control dialog box. In the Play Control dialog box, use the Options > Properties command, select Recording (under Adjust volume for), make sure Line-In and Microphone are checked, and click OK. In the Record Control dialog box, click the Select check box in either the Line-In or Microphone column, make sure the sliders are in the upper half of their range, and click OK. If you don’t see the Speaker icon on your taskbar, you can open the Windows Mixer by using the Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Volume Control (Windows 7) command.
