Hi renato,

only saw the question now, so sorry for the late reply.
The input voltage of soundcards depends on the headroom of the AD of your
soundcard. (e.g. Dynamic Range).
Pro and semi-pro cards often have a line level of +4dBu (1.227V RMS, 3.472V
Peak) plus a bit headroom.
Hope this helps.
Moshe

It's incredible the sound it has considering it's a piezo stuck bet=

some scrap wood and weed-eater strings

The piezo is putten directly into the soundcard and it clips... I should
parallel it with a zener diode... BTW what is the max voltage before
clipping on soundcards? is it soundcard-dependant?

No offense to real basses meant... of course it's only a game... but I<=

suggest trying it!
