awhile back, I purchased a Line 6 Toneport GX from guitar center
I am running it on windows vista home premuim

When I plug my guitar in the toneport to record, it sounds just fine.
But, whenever i go to record (using cakewalk/SONAR 7) it tends to have an audio drop out.

I'm not sure what that means, and I'm aware I don't have the best recording hardware, so I can't just get something better.

What does dropping out mean? how do I fix this? and might it be my sound card that's the problem... Realtek HD audio...
I don't know. I have Garage Band, and it works just fine. You should get that instead.
riffs and recordings?

Probably a combination of your processor and memory. My old computer was useless and although it did work most of the time Audio dropouts still happened. I think it's when you're 'puter is using too much memory so it has to cancel the recording for whatever reason. If this isn't correct feel free to prove me wrong.
"Drops out" how? The toneport may have a built-in noise gate/compressor you might have to configure.
