Give 10 UGers a rope and ask them to pull. 4 will push, 1 will ask for buttsecks, 2 will tell you get an Ibanez and the last 3 will start complaining about Line6 Spiders.

it does as well as the weakest link in your recording path. if you plug a $15 mic into it to mic your cab/acoustic/vocals, youll get the results of a $15 mic. if you use a nice mic to mic your cab/acoustic/vocals, you get a much better sound. there are way too many people who forget this.

but, that interface is pretty decent. definatly a good place to start when recording. it has 2 inputs so you can do things in stereo, or use some depth. many people that frequent the recording forum are happy with that interface. unless you arent going to do much recording, i would think you would be pretty satisfied with the device.

Yeah I meant for guitar not so much for vocals

The modelling on these things is always really digital.

Mic a real tube amp with a straight up interface.

It's crap. The built in modelling sucks. I said it was digital before, but it just sounds nasty.
You can mic your amp with the same setup, but it's kinda stupid because you're paying for the modelling, and if you dont' use it, you're wasting cash.

Micing your amp is just sticking a mic in front of it.

under $500? ill tell you what i would do. if you have a laptop, then use this and then a shure sm57. XLR cable might put you over $500, but you will get good quality. same with this, its just PCI so for desktop.

or for a cheaper card, this or this work well. then get a nice tube preamp (im sure you can find one if you look). or you can go none tube, but tube preamps sound warmer. then the rest of the money on a couple mics, starting agian with the shure sm57.

all of those are kinda expensive for just trying to get your guitar on your computer, BUT will make a great starting point if you want to do more recording in the future. of course none of this mentions software, but some of those things come with Cubase LE. good recording software is another important part, but you might have to skimp on that if you want to get the high quality cards for now.
