That ones pretty affordable. But you need a decent program, you can get a demo of like sound forge 9.0. Its not super great, but it works.

al i use is garage band(mac) and a 1/4 inch to 1/8 inch adapter for my patch chord. i also run a compressor which odly seems to boost the sound level which is good and multi FX but and plug the guitar into the audio in 1/8 inch jack.

i don't run any amplifier

the jam on my profile althouhg not that great will give you an idea of recording quality this way mind you it is done on a epiphone specail 2 with problems

I'm guessing you want to record the Valveking. All you need is a preamp, like the Fasttrack above, a microphone (Shure SM57, and maybe a $100 condenser for voice if you can afford it...sometimes it can be used for guitar for good bright results), an XLR-XLR cable, mike stand, free software like KRISTAL (arrange) or Audacity (master the audio) and perhaps some monitors or headphones to make sure your mix is semi decent.

$240 + headphones or monitors, these can be $100 or so, and you're good to go.

I use a really, really patchworked system, but it works. I program my drums in Hydrogen, and then record bass, guitar and vocals (in that order) in GoldWave. I then import the separate WAV files into Audacity.

I mic the guitar amp with an old RadioShack 33-3044 super-cardiod dynamic mic. The bass is run through whichever pedals I'm using at the time, straight into the PC. Vocals are done much the same - no muss, no fuss.

It's a cheap system, but it works fairly well if you've got some patience.
