    speaking of Line6, have to bug my friend to let me see him using his Pod Studio UX2 thing :goofy:

    was hanging with him yesterday but it was too late at night to play guitar and make noise, so he just showed me tabs of what he has been writing :tard:

    that's a soundcard, but I see it comes bundled with POD farm software.

    card looks pretty cool with the meters.

    yeah, I've only read about it being called interface, but it doesn't matter :P

    but it doesn't need to access your PC's own hardware/soundcard for anything? :o

    Connects via usb to your computer and becomes the sound card/interface, the on board realtek etc hardware generally isn't good enough for applications like recording an instrument, you'll run into latency problems (delay between playing and hearing it out the speaker) and the quality wont be as good but you can still connect a guitar using one of these:

    and asio4all software.

    the Focusrite Scarlett solo is just perfect if you don't want to do too much but just record a single instrument at a time

    I was going to buy this originally but seeing as its a reasonably long term purchase (last one lasted me 9 years), and that I'm a geek, I went for the bigger cousin, the 2i4. This is a really good one.
    you should, one small soundcard investment opens up a whole world of sounds and softwares and all sorts of other cool stuff, who cares what you play, just make some noise. :smokin:

    does the software that come with these things simulate effects too or just emulates particular sounds of a certain amp?

    saw the line6 at a store yesterday, went for 120 euros I think.

    But since I moved and left the hifi stereo at my parents, I don't even have a proper system anymore, I just put cds on my laptop and hear them through headphones :tard: so I was thinking I should invest in a system or speakers first before buying instrument gear.

    most come bundled with some kind of recording software, there's also all sorts of good freeware apart from the pirate stuff.

    the scarlett solo goes for about half that, there's probably a bunch of other options too but speakers first, what kind you looking for ?

    Well, not just speakers, I don't want to have to turn the PC on (it takes ages) just to put some CD on :goofy:

    A speaker set might be okay but some days I just don't feel like turning the PC on..I need to look into things.

    Next month car insurance will leave me with no money on my account :snarl:

    probably work out much cheaper with just a speaker set than for a full system, no sure though, haven't owned one in a long time.

    Decently entertaining, watched the review too.

    Though it's just a practice amp, don't they all suck? :o

    no idea, not a gear snob, but I'll agree with spending 150$ on a bias FX type software instead of a not very good small amp.
