Will I need to upgrade my sound card for using EZi Drummer/ Drumkit From Help/ Amplitube/ Revalver etc? Also intend to use it for recording. Have a VIA onboard card......will it cut it? I dont want massive latency and glitchy drum sounds.....

I use Line 6 Toneport GX. Got it for about 60 bucks and has a 1/4" instrument input with almost no latency. Not sure how you are attempting to use the onboard soundcard for instruments tho. EZ drummer shouldn't be a problem, but Amplitube might.

When I connect my guitar to the mic port, I get maybe 1 1/2 seconds of sustain, a very weedy tone and almost inaudible cleans.

All soundcards/chips should be AC97 compatible and that should be good enough for the basics. But an interface is a huge advantage for getting guitar recorded. I wish I had one but I make do with my RP150 MFX and a little mixer so I can record direct or mic up my amp, depending on the sound I want. Latency is a bit of a drag but getting tracks in synch is no big deal with most multi-track recording software.
I pick up my guitar and play

I recently became enlightened about just how far cheap USB inputs have come. This $40 Behringer unit works great as a low-latency input and can also work as an audio out if you need it to: http://www.jr.com/usb-guitar-link/pe/BEH_UCG102/


Hey...its got two inputs. Perfect! Only.....its Behringer

It has one in and one out. And Behringer’s pro-audio stuff is regarded as being pretty solid, unlike their cheap amps and pedals.

a multi track recorder, is a mixing desk that you can record to various media (cd, built in hardrive etc.) look up tascam porta 002

what you are better off using is a DAW (digital audio workstation) this is software based via a interface......seeing as you sound very new to recording get Reaper, it`s a free download.

for highend semi professional use go for protools LE(M-box 2 interface or higher required - £220 and higher) or protools M-powered (M-audio Fast track - same price as a toneport)

Edit:- wrong forum, i`ll get it moved to the recording forum...reported for the move
