Just wondered if effects can be used as audio interfaces rather than using an interface along with the effects to use through a pc, and what pros and cons might be involved as this is something ive never considered before!!

If so, any idea what effects do a good job?

An audio interface will channel the signal from your guitar optimally for use recording through a pc. I use a VOX multieffects pedal as a preamp, but you're going to encounter both latency, and poor signal strength using just effects.
Im not at this point looking to record but just to beable to play through the pc, its just finding something that is maybe an effects processor and audio interface built into 1, but not sure if there are any!!
