Yes, that will do the job.

If that's the top of your budget, then grab it and go. If your budget can go higher (comfortably) then you can generally always do better, at least in the entry-level...

As long as the interface is plugged in and you've set it as your i/o, then it shouldn't just default back without you unplugging or redirecting it. The interface probably won't know that it doesn't...

Pretty much EVERY interface will act as your computer's soundcard while it's plugged in, it won't be listed as a main feature on any website because it's so standard.

You can write the tabs in GP and export the midi files - drop them into Reason and load a VST.

Alternatively, you could just compose on your actual guitar and record your guitar audio in a DAW. Just...

Nah, just look at your drum grid and drag the hits onto the proper notes. Are you using a Lite version or a full version of Ableton?

Are you using a preset? Check the last 'page' in amplitube - where the rack units are. All the presets have a compressor jacked up on the final stage that will raise the noise floor up to the ceiling.

You can record one mono track, then double it and cut the highs on one (then pan left) cut the lows on the other (pan right) and you have a poor man's stereo piano!

WAY more likely that it's the room than the headphones. I use open-air headphones when tracking scratch vocals, and there will be a tiny tiny echo but it's negligible.

Because the cable is input-only. The presonus box gives you high quality output, and it's amplifying your dirty noise in a way that you can't hear on your laptop speakers ;)
