Welcome to HRC.

Going from your FX direct to your PC isn't really advisable unless you have some sort of direct box or amp simulator like the POD or Behringer Vamp. otherwise the sound will be very up front and in your face, kind of annoying sounding.

However, there is a little application called The GreenMachine that works as a software based amp sim and is quite cool for a good price. www.homerecordingconnecti...tory&id=488

Thanks I think the zoom gfx-4 has amp sim, in the instructions it recommends turning on amp sim and setting type etc. which is then set for all patches so it doesnt sound that bad just need to get my head round cool edit or can anyone recommend another product, only needed for using backing tracks to play over and record (for now)

cubase, sonar, logic, pro tools, cool edit, nuendo, acid, traction, and many many others all do recording, for you specifically i'd recomend Cakewalk's Guitar Tracks Pro (er i think that's the name anyway) it's basically a trimmed down version of their top of the line DAW Sonar, that is geared tward guitarists. every one of 'em has a learning curve of about 6 months to a year before you can really get stuff keep readin' and learnig!! it'll come slowly and stedily.
