You could connect your Guitar amp output to the aux in (3.5mm) on your PC, that's correct. Or you could use something like this which would most likely give you a better sound quality.
I'm similar to you, OP. I use amplitube 3 through Logic Pro X. I actually love it. My question is, how important is the interface? I have a pretty cheap, $40 interface, does it make a huge difference? Should I invest in a more expensive one?
EDIT: Here's a link to my interface, in case anyone was wondering.
yes, If you dont have an interface with an instrument port than you can buy this device for pretty cheap if you shop around. I got mine for $20 and it works great, sometimes there is a little bit of a delay though.
I use a Behringer Guitar Link. Its not very expensive, yet it does the job well. I have no issues with Lag/latency. I also get a good basic tone.
I ran the tone through Garage Band to get a alright sound. If your just practicing, or just want to get a good idea recorded its perfect. I now use Amplitude. (If you can find a download, I recommend it.)
Behringer makes a really cheap USB audio interface that comes packaged with software ready to go. My buddy uses this and it's not bad. There's alot better stuff out there but for $30 you can learn how to use audio software on the cheap and upgrade later.
If you check the reviews it's great for beginners but not so great if you have experience with more expensive products.
^Use something like this, and use "Ableton Live" or "Adobe Audition" or any program like that for your editing.
I used to use the rocksmith cable with Guitar Rig but the cable stopped working randomly so now I use this and it works like a charm
This might be a better idea: [link]
i use a USB plug, works a treat, like $30 on amazon, no delay when i run headphones and record in audacity.
get a 1/4" to usb 'guitarlink' adapter + otg cable + galaxy nexus + usbeffects. ultra low latency is possible, trust me
I'm assuming it's an electric guitar you are looking to hookup.
Plug guitar into amp. Assuming your amp has a headphone jack, plug the headphone jack into the computer's mic in.

Audacity is free software that works really well for basic recording needs.
Here ya go. 34 bucks.
I use the Behringer Guitar-Link. $32. Researched before I bought it to make sure it was good to go on linux.
This should be a ok for an interface.
