Hey guys,
i've got a few questions about recording wich i couldn't find a clear answer for on the forum.

I want to start recording my guitar tunes to my PC but i don't really know how or what stuff i need. At the moment i use a Roland Cube 15x, a Epihpone les paul standard plus and a digitech rp50. I'm using a quite old PC. What stuff do i need to record my stuff? i've read some things about using a microphone but i was wondering if it isn't possible to just record with cables from my amp to PC. I'd also look to know wich software i need (prefere free stuff) and i'd like to know if theres anything i need to buy to be able to record. i don't really want to spend a lot because i don't know much about this.

Thank you in advance.

look at the guides at the top of the recording forum page

www.tweakheadz.com
read the guide here

basically your going to need an interface and some software (audacity and reaper are free) to get started.

Would this be a good and cheap solution for the interfaces?

It's a Fame HR-2 mobile recorder

Or is this interface good enough for recording?

it's a emu 0202 USB USB 2.0 Audiointerface

or to get even more cheaper. this one.

The first one is not an interface. Its a moblie recorder. I wouldn't get that for basic recording stuff.

The other two would be fine from what I can tell. Though not the best choices. And just for the record, I don't read any german. and really don't know anything about either of the two interfaces you posted.
Don't forget that you get what you pay for.

Read my sigs, you can actually skip half the stuff i said you need thats mostly if you want to start an actual home studio. The emu 0202 is fine by what i've heard. You MAY want to upgrade your computer though.
