do you have usb 2.0? older usb is slow and results in delays between you playing and the computer registering, it makes playing over a track a lot more difficult, although still possible.

usb 2.0 still has a delay but it is practically negligible, a few milliseconds.

if your computer has a firewire port (you can buy a firewire card for about £5-£10 ($10-20) provided your computer has a free slot, it would be best, but usb 2.0 should do fine

^ the mic isn't great, we have it for our singer.

the mic that comes with the firewire version is quite good though, slightly thinner sounding than a sm57 (or 58? whichever is the all-round one) but definitely worth the £30 or so it costs

Any of the Digitech modeling processors, models RP150 and above, have USB connectivity.

I've got one myself, and it's great fun.

Example of people using them:

Toneport UX2.



+1 for the tone port, has a good range of amp and pre amp modles and can also be used jsut for micing up an amp in the normal way, although ableton only alows for four tracks, unless there is a way around that????

I bought Cakewalk Sonar Home Studio; I didn't much care for the Ableton Live Lite either.

I just ordered a Line 6 Toneport UX1 (the $129.99 version). I looked all around the internet looking for the best bang for my buck and it kept going back to that product for quality and price. I saw some less expensive that seemed wretched and some that were more expensive that gave less quality.

there's a $200 version that will let you record two guitars, or a guitar and bass simultaneously. but I just bought the one that had one guitar jack and mic jack because I'm going to be doing all the recording myself. I'll just add the bass in second.

I haven't recieved it yet, so I can't speak for quality yet. but everything I've heard has been fairly positive.

here's a link

I got the UX2 too, I use it with Cubase SX. The modeling is decent, but I'm looking forward to getting a decent mic, so I can use my amp.
