Ok, so ive read up on how to get the ipod touch line in to work. Apparently the line in pins are active. So there are many DIYs but i was woundering if anyone has done this? I am wanting to plug my guitar in and record. The line in is used on the pins of the dock connector, so my other question is can i use the mic input of the 3.5mm as a mono line in instead of a mic as my guitar is mono. Also when i plug another 3 pin 3.5 plug in with a mic on it the ipod says no mic..do apple use technology to verify there own mics? next the line in pinouts have Line in Right, Line in Left and an audio GROUND. if i were to run the screen of my cable to the GROUND and the other single core (mono) to the line in RIGHT and bridge between RIGHT pin line in and LEFT pin line in i would get RIGHT and LEFT input and output sound? Correct? ALSO WHERE CAN I GET ONE OF THOSE OLD BIG STYLE IPOD USB CABLES!! CHEERS!
