You mean out of a headphone Jack on a keyboard? Its best if the keyboard has a line out. Plug into the sound in on a computer, use recording software.

If your intention is to record the keyboard sound into a computer (per se), then yes, you would plug in from the headphone jack and into the mic line in in the computer or recording device. The, if you are using the computer, the line in setting to record.

Well, when the keyboard hears a sound, it detects it and goes through the amplifiers, producing a sound on the headphone jack.

That exact scenario does not make sense. Keyboards do not have a headphone jack. Even if they did, recording sound through it would be impossible. Therefore, that question does not make sense.
