Never been impressed by Steinberg.

Suggest you look at MOTU and Focusrite.

Unless you like their Cubase software (who would?) which it probably works well with.

Line6 tend to the cheap end of the market, but some of their top of the range stuff is worth looking at.

Steinberg has the best preamps and conversion in its class... but as already said, their hardware support is less than stellar.

For the money I'd get a mackie onyx blackjack, though the steinberg's will work just fine as well.

Skip line 6.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

I have the MR816x and I LOVE it. FW drivers were a bit of a bitch to install, but it has been running for about 4 years steady now without a hiccup, and it sounds great.

I have dealt with Steinberg tech support very infrequently, but have always been impressed. I even got to chat with Charlie Steinberg himself once. Truth!

I also love Cubase. I've stuck with it for probably 15 years and have never felt the need to switch - even after working with a friend in his ProTools studio.

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?

I know it sounds crazy, but try to learn to inhale your voice. www.thebelcantotechnique.com

Cubase (or any other DAW) has zero effect on the sound. Also definitely go Steinberg over Line6, the UX series sound like ass.

You do one of the following:
(a) Don't
(b) Put a mic infront of it

choose option (a) if you don't have a good quality tube amp or aren't 100% nailing the tone you want when you put your ear within a foot of the speaker (obviously using ear protection). Also choose (a) if you don't own/want-to-buy a microphone, or learn the intricacies of mic placement. To make (a) an actual useful suggestion, once you've decided not to mic your amp take a look at our amp simulator sticky. Plug your guitar straight into the interface, and load up some of the plugins in that sticky, and you're good to go.

So I should get the lanny ironheart studio and skip all this headache (I was planning to get the 30w combo)

You forgot:

(c) Connect the preamp out/effects send to interface and run an impulse with it as your cabinet.

Most amps that are good enough to do that with are generally worth putting a mic infront of.

TS I don't know what that amps like but maybe, if it's a decent amp. Otherwise hook up an amp sim, it's pretty quick and easy to do (check out the sticky on them).

Usually - but micing is also a technique that takes practice, a lot of beginners actually get better results with impulses this way then they would micing the amp.
