Hi, I'm looking to upgrade the home recordings I do on my computer. I've been doing recordings for years (I'm a poor college student now) by just recording my voice/instruments on a mic straight into the computer. As you can imagine, the quality is not great. Now that I've realized I'm serious about recordings, I need to have a better setup. I've posted in this forum before about this, but I now I have at least a better idea of what I'm looking for. I'd like to upgrade soon, so I've been looking at USB interfaces around $150-200. I'm using Adobe Audition, so the software is great. I'm just looking for something that will improve the sound I'm getting from this bare bones method. Does anybody have any suggestions for what I should look into in particular? I've been looking products up on Musician's Friend, but the reviews are always mixed. I need some advice! I use two different PCs, both using XP. One is the media version, and is a newer computer, and those recordings come out the best. When I record on my laptop, if the recording selection is not on "wave out mix" the quality is not good. I'm also wondering if using a device would solve this problem, so let me know! Thanks!
