Yes you can. Provided your computer has a built in sound output. Most do. Tho, the drivers used are very "generic". Not efficient. Well enough for playing a song or watching YouTube, but audio recording can demand more for a clean recording. I highly recommend you consider an Audio Recording Interface of some kind. Presonus carries many different devices for many different situations. Choose one that suits you. This will give your recording software and setup more efficient devices and device drivers for recording smooth and clean audio. And of course a fair set of monitors will never be remiss. If you want to hear things a tad better than from headphones or generic PC speakers. Just don't get anything that will make your neighbors disagreeable. Unless that is what you're going for. All good.
