Re: More adobe audition help.

As in the audio output on your laptop is the same as the input? I've never heard of that before.

Re: More adobe audition help.

This is more of an input/output question, than an adobe audition question.

I have never seen this before on a notebook either.

It sounds similar to the way the 3.5mm stereo jack works on the iPhone to me. The 3.5mm stereo jack also doubles as a mic input. That is why the mic on the handfree stereo headset works.

To answer your question with the splitter, I am not sure. I have heard of this done to get double mono etc with the output in other situations, while using a mic for input.

While on the topic of these wierd inputs, you guys have to check out IK Multimedia's iRig which take full advantage of the bidirectional jack on the iPhone:
Such a cool idea! I have not heard in person the quality though. They also make a Stealth Plug which seems to be a USB version of a the same thing for PC.

Personally I would just find a USB audio interface to get your instrument into the PC. What audio interface will be your big question, as that is a huge choice, and there are many options. Then you select your audio interface as Input in Windows, and your normal sound card (onboard soundcard in your case) as output, in the sound recording software that you use, and just use that input/output jack as an output jack.

The headphone out and the Mic in are the same? That sounds a little strange. What you could do is buy a set of good USB speakers, that way you could monitor your first track while you use the Headphone/Mic jack in to record.
