I received way more money than expected for my birthday and I want to change my setup a little bit. I've been wanting to get a bass for a while so I could do my own backing tracks and record my own songs.

I want to sell my Vox AC4TV and my EQ and get some sort of interface like the line 6 pod. My parents have been complaining about the noise and I'm moving out soon so I won't be able to have an amplifier.

Are there better interfaces than other ?

Is it possible to control them with the foot or add a real effect pedal to the mix, like my Big Muff of a Wah ?
