Does an instrument input have to be midi?

I have a connection from a guitar, with a lead that goes into to a usb port into my laptop. I was wondering if it is possible to use my guitar with this type of connection and how I would set the guitar up for recording

    Not sure if that works with usb. Usually you would use a soundcard with pre-amp, plug in the guitar, and record the audio into an audio track.

    Set the audio track input to "ext in", choose the correct channels of your audio input, arm the track and hit "record".


    Hope this helps.
