Ok people, I'm pretty new to recording hardware....basically i need a usb audio interface , but there is so many different kinds i don't know which is for me.....I want to be able to record vocals and guitar.........i already have a Shure sm57 mic at the moment aswell. Do I need some kind of mixer aswell?? I Have a budget of around £150 sterling. and would prefer to order from this site: www.gak.co.uk ...just because its where I buy all my stuff from.

yes you can run a mic into that mixer...it's got a USB output meaning it's somewhat of an audio interface built in.

I like the M-Audio products best like the Fast Track MKII

As stated in a later post, research how to record and what to get before buying. See my sig links for useful sites.

Also check out the Line 6 UX2 - they make great hardware and the Pod Farm Amp Modeling software and plug-in is amazing stuff - a whole lotta fun - it's every bit as good as the Commercial big-guns (Guitar Rig, Amplitube, etc) IMO. The software alone is worth the $$$ and the hardware is sweet.
Now running an Eleven Rack with Pro Tools 10.3.3 - it's amazing and I'm having ball with it - worth every penny. PT 10 is tops IMO and the Eleven Rack is a work of art!

Last I checked, Line 6 was a pretty major commercial music company who has been doing amp modeling and effects modeling way before Guitar Rig or Amplitube hit the market. Even then, before Line 6 did Pod Farm, they did Amp Farm (a TDM Plugin for Pro Tools HD).

Its just recently that they did Pod Farm. To throw my 2 cents in there as well, Pod Farm sounds way better than Guitar Rig and Amplitube (Amplitube probably being the worst amp sim ever made)
