Peace yall.. Im new to the site and Im planning on getting a 404 soon and I was wondering if there was a plug or some type of connection I can get to connect a sp to my laptop for recording.. I read the other threads about methods of recording but I was wondering if it was just a basic plug out there I can get for a connection in the mean time.. lol..

Thanx

Youll need to be an interface, which will provide you with the inputs and outputs and will also be your soundcard. You can get simple ones relatively cheap, and you just plug your 404 to it with rca cables and your set!

Hi,
Probably would be a USB soundcard or more properly - "audio interface".

I can't make a recomendation based on personal experience, I don't use a lappy and my cards are internal pci ones in an ordinary pc. Probably do well to look at the Edirol range for USB interfaces.

Things to consider...
If your laptop has a pc card (and not the newer express card) slot, Echo have some interfaces that are well thought of, and they'll live in the laptop instead of having to drag a seperate box around which a USB one would entail.
If the laptop has Windows Vista - not many brands have Vista drivers yet, and even fewer have the 64bit version Vista drivers.
Do you need an interface with a 5pin midi port to drive the 404?

eg Edirol UA-25...
http://www.dolphinmusic.co.uk/page/shop ... ct_id/4001

The UA-25 has Vista drivers and midi ports.

There are some simple USB interfaces around, often sold as ideal for people to record their vinyl to CD with. With their RCA connectors they look ideal to use with the 404, but I feel these are a false enconomy - barely better than a laptops own built in audio chip - and no midi. The only thing that's good about them is that they are so basic, there's no need to install a special driver, Windows already has a generic usb driver built in. I've tested one of these, and promptly gave it away!

good luck!
Jim

Have you ever clicked a link on your laptop and it takes you to a page that says: Sp 404 - Not Found? This can make it difficult for people to find your website, especially if you have an email address or phone number written on the same page. It all starts with a connection. The final destination is a blog post with the all-important link to your product or service, but in the middle of that journey is a 404 error telling you “we were unable to connect” because of some kind of problem connect canon printer to laptop. The most common mistake made by marketers and business owners when it comes to using landing page software like Sp page creator is forgetting about their users and potential clients.
