I have a DigItech RP360 Guitar processor that im trying to use with Audacity. It recognises the unit on the drop down, but i’m not getting any signal from it. I tried plugging th 360 output into the MIC input on the P.C. and all i get is a howling feedback with no instruments connected. Any ideas? Cheers, Baz

Did you select it as your [u]Recording Device[/u]? It’s supposed to work, since it uses the regular Microsoft-supplied drivers.
It looks like there are a lot of configuration options so read your user manual carefully. I found this in the online manual:
There are two parameters in the RP which are used for controlling your audio levels when recording,
they are: the USB RECORD LVL parameter and the USB PLAY MIX parameter. These parameters allow
you to control the level of the audio being recorded from the RP and the level of the playback audio
from the DAW. See USB Record Level and USB Play Mix on page 47 for more information on

Does that happen without the USB connected, or is the feedback coming back-in through the USB? If it’s happening without USB, make sure you’ve selected the mic input as your recording device (not loopback or Stereo Mix, etc.).
Although the mic input should “work”, it’s a mismatch for a line-level signal and you won’t get the best quality. The line-input on a desktop/tower computer will work much better, but hopefully you can get the USB working.
This Digitech still is a USB 1.1 device. Maybe you need to try all USB ports on your computer.
The analog output is stereo, unbalanced line level. If you get howling, maybe you have the wrong cable? It’s certainly not mic level and most laptops these days have a combo port that doubles as stereo headphone out & mono mic in. Smartphone style.
