How to connect a guitar to ableton, with a usb lead?

I recently bought a lead from the guitar to a usb so I could connect it and record through the laptop. However I do not know how to authorise it in ableton. If possible, could you tell me how to connect it

    Hi! Why would you have to authorize it? It is an external instrument, right?

    So all you would (theoretically)have to do is this:

    - plug guitar into your computer

    - adjust levels in your audio preferences

    - select the correct input in an Ableton audio track

    - record.


    But if you really want to record quality guitar sounds, you would need a decent audio interface, plug in the guitar input (audio cable), select the interface in Ableton's preferences, and record the sound into an audio track.


    Hope this helps.
