  • I wouldn't recommend plugging in direct. It can be done and I have done it, but you'll get better results by finding a standalone audio interface. You would then plug your guitar into the interface with witch ever 1/4in cable you prefer and from the interface to the computer with either usb, firewire, bluetooth... As far as which cable is best, that is up for debate. The idea is to find a cable that doesn't color your sound, but the fact is that every piece of equipment your signal passes through WILL color your sound. So basically, try out cables to see which you prefer. Peace.
