    I'm an 18 year old, looking to begin recording myself on a small scale level and a resonably small scale budget. I'd like to start out spending no more than a $1000 or so.

    I would primarily be recording guitar(acoustic/electric) and vocal, but also consider recording other instruments in the future (drum kit, keys, random).

    Being new to the recording world, I know none of the lingo, technology, and solid products within the industry, besides what I've learned surfing the boards.

    I'm not concerned with anything except getting sounds on to my computer as of now, so all I need is suggestions on a audio interface.

    Here are my computer specs as of now....
    --P4 3.2Ghz
    --Asus P4P800S Motherboard, Intel 848p Chipset
    --800Mhz FSBus, USB 2.0
    --1024 MB DDR400
    --200Gig Hard drive
    --SiS Xaaber200-X20L DDR Video

    As of now, I am fluctuating my decision between the Digi002 and the MBox, but feel that there are other options that I simply have not heard about that would be better all around.

    --Would I be compatable with Digidesign products based on my software specs?

    --Is there much more to recording than plugging the audio interface in (on the mbox/002) and recording?

    --What other options should I consider, I've heard things about an EMU product, anything else on a budget less than a Digi002?

    Thank you for your help, all replys are sincerely, greatly appreciated!!!!

    As far as other ideas for under 1000 have you thought about presonus,rme,lynx,mackie,yamaha?
    Also add mics and a stand into your total price equation as they are as important as anything else.

    I also took a look at the Zoom MRS-8, but it didn't come with software, and I'm not really sure about the quality of the recording.

    I will mostly be recording an acoustic guitar, vocals to start, if that helps any.
