I have purchased an apogee duet, as I read this was the best available in my price range. All I've tried so far is plugging the guitar lead into the guitar input on the Duet then recording into Garageband. I found it too quiet to begin with, so I increased the volume to around 44 where it was much louder but not clean, and just moving my fingers up the guitar was incredibly loud, louder than on any other recording I listen to...

Whats the best interface for me? I'd like to create an ambient sound but would just like to get started first.
