I've been playing guitar since 8th grade, and I've gotten tired of writing down my ideas in tablature, only to come back to it months later, having forgotten the rhythm. So, I'd like to start recording on my computer, and I was wondering if you guys had any setups you'd reccommend. I'm not in a band right now, so I don't need 16 or (even 8) channel mixers, advanced pre-amps or expensive processing software. I would like to get a setup that I can add on to later on, but for right now, i'm looking for a sub-$300 setup that I can plug into the USB port of my lap top. Thanks for all of the help, and sorry to put this here - I just couldn't think of any subject to put this under. Thanks again, all advice is appreciated.
edit: Admins, please move this to the correct area if i'm mistaken in posting it here. Thanks again.
