4.0 out of 5 stars A great buy 11 Sep 2009
By isis 1958 VINE VOICE

A really useful piece of kit.

More tricky to use with acoustic guitars with a pick-up - just couldn't get the balance right so knocked off a star - no real instructions with it. Not that there's anything complicated.

Was dubious about it at first - seemed too cheap. But does the job admirably on electric guitar.

No frills.

No problem recording my guitar in Ableton Live. Not tried any other DAW with it or recording software.

4.0 out of 5 stars On Windows machines.. 14 Aug 2011
Lindy USB Guitar Cable 5m works without drivers, plug and play on XP and above.

On XP it's advisable to configure an ASIO driver such as ASIO4ALL (free, google it) on older operating systems to reduce latency to near zero if you are planning to use some sequencer software for recording and live monitoring. You will still get latency if you try to use only the standard XP Wave Device, ASIO drivers eliminate most of any lag.

Under Win7/Vista use the windows WaveRT device instead of Wave, and the ASIO driver should not be needed.

On latency, a slight improvement with the cable and XP+ASIO4ALL than I got via the onboard sound on my ASUS motherboard when using ASIO, but the cable does get far more signal out of the guitar and into the recording software (using Mixcraft 5 here).

On signal level - one thing to remember is that you will probably have to go into the audio settings on the PC (right-click the speaker, properties-> recording controls), enable advanced control viewing and in the advanced controls for the new USB sound device, DISABLE the AGC which is a software automatic gain control.
The levels coming from the cable dont need this, and you may need to reduce the volume slider to 20% or so (I did) to get the level low enough to be useable by your software.

Another "gotcha" to remember, is that the mini-soundcard that is inside the cable's USB plug has an unused and non-functioning sound output device built into it's chipset - if you get no sound from your normal speakers after installing this, youll need to check the sounds are going where you think they were - and disable the output device from windows. This is an input cable (unless you expect the guitar to work as a loudspeaker?

I was looking for an inexpensive way to connect my electric guitar to my PC and Mac. This works great with both but be aware you will need software such as Garage Band.

5.0 out of 5 stars impressed! 9 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase
Impressed me enough to write a review! it's simple: plug and play. I have a macbook 2.26ghz intel c2d, 4gb ram and tried it out with garageband. no detection issues and no latency whatsoever even with GB's heavy fx guitar rigs and even when overdubbing loads of guitar tracks with live monitoring. so glad I didn't have to buy an external audio interface.

I just got this delivered today, and was itching to try it out after a 2-year battle with an M-Audio Fast Track that refused to work properly.
At first I was worried when I plugged the cable into Windows 7 and there was no new device sound (though the blue power light came on straightaway); however when I switched USB ports it was fine, so I'm guessing that port was just a bit temperamental.
I've tried the device in Ableton Live today, and after realising it was my guitar volume that was making the output so quiet (slight blonde moment there, lol), the cable worked perfectly; it was recognised instantly by Ableton and only needed some very slight tweaks to get the best output (and considering that I'm no music recording expert, that's a very good thing). The sound quality is excellent, even with my guitar's single-coil pickups (I have a Fender Squier Affinity Series Strat); in fact the only time I got any unwanted noise was when using certain noisy effects, and even this could be remedied by tweaking the effects themselves.
I did have some latency, but to be honest, this isn't a real worry for me; I was expecting latency on a laptop and I know what actions to take to reduce it. Today was just a test :)
All in all I am extremely happy with this product, as it means I can finally record decent-quality guitar; now I can finally make some songs! I've already written a glowing feedback message to Lindy, and I would thoroughly recommend this product to anyone who wants a quick, easy and quality method of recording guitar on a pc.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not good for Realtek HD Audio 11 Jan 2012
By Dr Aza
Verified Purchase
If you have Realtek HD installed on your PC, be aware you may have problems getting it to work. I have spent 5 hours trying to get it to work with no luck, i have checked the Lindy site and they say there are problems with Relatek HD audio compatibility and are looking into it for me. I have tried every option possible and can't get it to work, and looking on the net, lots of other people have had the same problem.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Good Enough 10 Jan 2012
By LuMan
Verified Purchase
I decided to buy this after reading a number of reviews on Amazon and other sites. Most of the reviews were good, but a number of them refered to latency and sound quality issues. Despite this, I decided to take the plunge.
Latency - It's awful. There is no way you can record effectively (particularly quick guitar licks) with a delay of this type. I'm using an iMac Core 2 Duo at 2.26GHz and 4Gb RAM - more than adequate for this device. A quick search through various forums advised fitting more RAM(!) or recording a few seconds of nothing and then trying again. Still, no avail. I tried direct recording on other machines and using different software to rule out Garageband, but it was still too, too laggy to be of use.
Then there's the background noise. It's horrific. Garageband has issues with this anyway, but this lead just made matters even worse. By the time you've filtered out as much hiss as you can, there's little left of actual required sound to bother recording.
At the very best, this isn't good enough to be a spare.
I'll be returning this item and may opt for a direct replacement, just in case I had a rogue unit. If this is the case I'll repost an amended review. For the record, the actual purchase process was very quick, efficient and the item arrived very quickly.
