i would get one of those, im saving for one at the moment and ive heard good reviews about it, it has a drum machine etc
it would mean saving up bout $70 more though...

i would check out the line 6 website for software but i dont know if it would work or not

Nooooooo don't get one of those.

If you already have a computer, you can do a lot more with software and an interface than one of those.

Now, TS, do you own a Mac or PC? Also, do you already own an audio interface? Because you will need one, which you have to take into account with your budget.

That being said, alot of interfaces come with software.

Get an M box and Pro tools. Search on ebay for it.

How do you plan on getting your sources into the computer? That is as important if not more important than just the software.

The interface will take your analog signal and convert it to digital. Your current soundcard does the same thing but since the basic soundcard only has to be good at converting digital to analog it will be crap for recording. Basic interfaces today will usually have mic preamps too.

You know there is so much free, professional-grade software out there, right?

Ardour - Replaces CuBase, ProTools, Sonar etc.
Hydrogen - Great drum machine
ZynAddSubFX - Greatest synthesizer, ever! Link fixed*
amSynth - Immitates analogue synthesis from devices like the miniMOOG
LADSPA - Bunch of free, open-source plugins. Everything you could possibly need. Bye-bye VST
JACK - Low-latency audio server that ties it all together

There's much more, but this is enough for a basic studio, and it doesn't cost you a dime. Spend money on hardware, not bits and bytes.

Well your going to need an interface first, but with a good interface I can get wonderful quality recordings, in the free program audacity, google it if you dont already have...im no help on the drum situation though.
