I play Bass, Guitar, and an Eastwood Airline Electric Mandola, what I would like to do is record a backup track. and have it on CD using the guitar and bass so I can play my mandola live. I'll play the CD through my Tascam Guitar Trainer using my Bass amp (Ampeg 115) and play the Mandola through the Mustang III. I have a Mustang III that's about a year old, Ableton Lite Live 8 (8.09) and Windows 7. I can connect the Mustang III to the computer using the USB cord and I think I can connect the headphone output on my computer to the AUX input on the amp and hear the full sound through the amp headphones but I'm not sure, I haven't tried it yet. After I get the connections right and get into Ableton, I'll try to muddle my way through that using the Ableton info. My big question is can I record using my amp into Ableton and then convert it over to CD, will this work? Everyone by now has figured out that I don't know much about anything, so....If your kind enough to help me out..... please keep it simple, I'll get lost real quick. I just turned 21 for the third time (63) and I still haven't learned much!
Also, is there a better, simpler, and easier way to do this. I'm not locked in to any particular method.
Thanks very much!
