Green newbie needs help with gear :)

hi everyone, im looking for some help on setting up my gear in a specific way.

i currently own a Behringer v-tone gmx110 amp
Boss ME-70 guitar pedal board
custom Ibanez pgm3

i would like to know how to connect my gear to my computer so i can start recording and making tracks, in the comfort of my own room using software to record and make the backing tracks etc im breaking into an advanced level of playing although my theory knowledge is poor.

i have a windows 7 operating system on my computer.
advice on software to use would be apreciated thanx

Reaper is awesome for the price.

However you will need a mic and interface to record your amp.

My suggestion tho is:
Get reaper
Get an interface so you can record directly from your guitar
Get amplitube or guitar rig. Or other amp software

Optional: Get a good impulse response loader and some cabinet impulses.

Here's a link to a cubic buttload of guitar based VSTs

the v-tone evidently has a "Stereo Tape output with speaker simulation for direct recording and live applications". it looks like that output is a RCA output, but you can get something like an RCA to 1/8" TRS adapter and plug it right into the input on your computer.

while this isn't the highest quality was of doing it, it should be quite effective for basic recording.

if you don't mind spending about $150 more, you can get a nice USB interface and plug the amp into that. if you want to spend ~$100 more you can get a mic for that USB interface and mic the amp up.

edit: forgot about the DAW. if you get an interface then it will prob come with DAW software. if not, i have heard plenty of good things about Reaper, or you can just type 'free windows DAW software' into google and you should be able to find something.

that is also a possibility. if you also want to use some of the behringer's effects (prob not necessary) you could put the boss me70 through the effects loop and still run the tape out on the behringer to the computer.
