I'm about to start recording some tracks straight on to my computer and need advice on whether this hardware is good enough to do it / if this is actually what i need.




I've already got Cubase SX3 so software bundles etc. shouldnt be an issue.

any help or advice would be much appreciated

well if you have firewire on your computer I highly suggest the PreSonus Firestudio Project.

8 inputs which can be tracked at the same time and kept separate which is awesome for any situation, great preamps, overall an awesome unit to work with.

Budget is around £200 - £300 for the recording equipment itself and have already found a good set of monitors so that is sorted.

im looking to record electric guitar, bass, vocals and eventually drums once i get a good drum mic set.

ive got vocal mic's and cables already so that isnt an issue in terms of budget, i just need to know whether either of the systems mentioned above will be suitable.
My advice is to blow all you money on an audio interface. Out of the two up there I'd recommend going with the focusrite. Look into a presonus firepod or focusrite saffire series(if you get the pro you'll have enough mic pres to record drums).
A good rule of thumb is that you get what you pay for.
Epiphone special II
Ibanez RG570
Yamaha C-40
Roland Cube 30
ENGL Fucking Fireball
