I've tried to plug my electric guitar into Toshiba Thrive tablet and record some music using the default Sound Recorder app.

I found that the tablet recorded sounds as if the guitar is not attached to the tablet, there was a lot of noise and the guitar sound was not clear.

When I plug my guitar to the sound card of the PC the sound produced is similar to what I hear when I plug the guitar to a real guitar amplifier; the sound is "clean". I expected the same when plugging into the tablet.

Is there a method to achieve the same clean sound on my Android tablet?


The info I'm finding suggests that you need a 4-ring TRRS connector to use a mic, and that the bundled Sound Recorder app will ignore this regardless and just use the internal mic, so you'll need a different recording app.
