Guitarists or similar – home recording
That one won’t do microphones – you are correct the levels/impedances are not compatible.
For a cheap quick a dirty recording, it will do the job well – classic behringer quality*.

Looks cheap, looks like it’ll do what I want – any reason not to get one? I do need it cheap – I notice that the Tascam US-122 looks cooler and has hardware monitoring but it’s triple the price. All I want to do is record and play back. I’d use the soundcard on my laptop but the latency is too high.
I would quite like the ability to use a mic too, I don’t know if that cheap one will suppor that, aren’t mic levels lower than guitars?Posted 4 years agonickdaviesSubscriber
Depends what you want but those mini jack USB leads are quite cool and work well if you have enough power to the USB. I’d vote guitar port though, small and will cope with vocals but not really cheap. Great bit of kit though, mine always travels with me and my Steinberger headless guitar so I can turn hotel rooms into home 🙂

If you just want something cheap and relatively good sounding for playing by yourself then the Vox Amplugs are worth a look. Not the best build quality (my first one arrived broken and they do feel a bit flimsy) but I’m really happy with the sound of my bass one. Use it for recording and playing at home. Haven’t tried any of the guitar ones yet though but I’d be tempted. The AC30 sounds pretty nice on the audio demos on their site.Posted 4 years agothegiantbikerMember
The Line 6 Pod is a good one to go for. It looks a bit pricey, but comes bundled with some really god amp simulation software that lets you create pretty much any tone you can think of and play with it real-time. Its also survived a few years of being chucked around a class full of music tech students, so you shouldn’t be able to break it too easily.
<Self-plug> If you want to hear it in use, I used it for the guitar at around 2:00 in on my coursework.Posted 4 years ago
Hmm, some good stuff here, but cheapness is a necessity, as is the ability to overdub myself and my primitive drum machine. My drum machine has thousands of built in rhythmns but hardly any I actually like, so I need to be able to sequence my own and then record. I have an ooold copy of the cheap version of Cubase, which I’d use, but as above the soundcard in my laptop has too much latency.
I’ve got a multi effects thing too which I’d use, so all I need is a means of getting the audio into the computer quickly enoug, for minimum outlay.Posted 4 years ago
