Well, this is my first post and I hope I'll learn a lot from this forum, so hi to everyone I'm thinking of buying my first USB soundcard/interface and I think I've narrowed it down to 3 but I need some help choosing. I'm at university, so money is tight and I can't really go over £100 ($160) but an extra 10 won't matter much. I use Cubase and Reason (both versions @ 5) and I play guitar, but I may want to record vocals in the future also. My amp isn't ideal for mic'ing (being a solid state I might as well just go guitar -> effects pedal -> interface or record the guitar dry) but both it and my effects pedal have emulated line out/recording jacks. I don't have any microphones yet but my university has a big range to choose from. So, the choice (won't necessarily buy from here, just a decent source of info): PreSonus Audiobox USB Presonus Audiobox USB Audio Interface at Gear4Music.com Line 6 Pod Studio UX1 Line 6 Pod Studio UX1 USB Audio Interface at Gear4Music.com M-Audio Fast Track 2 MKII M-Audio Fast Track 2 MKII USB Audio Interface at Gear4Music.com Thanks!
