Hello Pit. I am at a cross roads. I do not know what I should buy to continue recording onto the computer.

I have found 3 products that suit my needs. I humbly ask your advice and experience with these products. ( Or anything similar that fits the needs. )

These are the products, in order of price.

1. Line 6 POD Studio GX with POD Farm http://www.musiciansfriend.com/pro-audio/line-6-pod-studio-gx-with-pod-farm

2. Line 6 POD Studio UX1 with POD Farm http://www.musiciansfriend.com/pro-audio/line-6-pod-studio-ux1-with-pod-farm

3. Line 6 POD Studio UX2 with POD Farm http://www.musiciansfriend.com/pro-audio/line-6-pod-studio-ux2-with-pod-farm

Note: I already have software for recording and mixing and production. ( Cake Walk ) But I'm interested in what you use or suggest.

Please, share your experiences with recording onto the computer with whatever products.

My story: Spend super long time recording 8 minute masterpiece. Had to do 100 retakes because I had to record it in all 1 shot. Realize the metronome I recorded with was off by 10 bpm when I try to sync up the other instruments. 2 hours of my life gone.

Wrote EP with band using my computer and Guitar Port.
BSOD.
Lost every track.
Named it "**** you, God, we're making this whether you like it or not".

If you just want something solid for Guitars and Vocals I would recommend this, I was in your position 3-4 months ago and settled on the Blackjack and haven't regretted it.

Its limited of course and you'll need a new DAW possibly but its great quality and problem free with the ASIO drivers.
Kaya Scodelario... Wow

GEAR:
Air
Purple Tortex Jazz Picks

+1 to Presonus. I have the Inspire. Line6 aren't so hot but they are popular. ^ Oh yes and Macky/Mackie (not sure of spelling?) make some good products as well. I haven't used their I/Os but their desks are good quality

TS why did you have to record all in one shot? The beauty of digital recording is that it's non destructive. You can edit parts without destroying the rest or even cut bits out and do retakes without having to also re do the rest. That's exactly why we've moved on from tape?
