2 years ago I bought a M-Audio MobilePre USB. 2 inputs for guitar/bass (you can record 2 instruments at the same time), 2 phantom powered inputs for mics, no latency with asio driver. I paid for it about 200 euros.

Here are couple of suggestions from Thomann.de, all great examples bellow 200e:

http://www.thomann.de/de/m_audio_fast_track_prosc600.htm

http://www.thomann.de/de/focusrite_saffire_6_usb.htm

http://www.thomann.de/de/tascam_us_600.htm


Personally I would strongly recommend Focusrite because of the quality of the preamps, or M-Audio, if you would like that microphone too.

Consider the M Box as well if you are on a Mac, a very pro solution

Awesome guys!

Is it important to have USB 2.0? the only one within my budget that has that is the tascam

The responses have laid out some great choices. Ivan has NAILED many of the best bets and the MBOX is a great choice as well. Here is a link to a full guide on THOMANN.DE about audio interfaces.

http://www.thomann.de/gb/onlineexpert_105.html

USB 2.0 is important. USB 1.1 has very limited bandwidth. It's not a deal killer for you probably but go 2.0 if at all possible.

IF budget is an issue, take a look at the TASCAM US-800 ( 8 inputs USB 2.0) which goes for about $100 U.S.

IF you can swing it, I can personally suggest the Tascam M164 UF (my personal unit choice) which is a full mixing board with FX and USB connection. I've recored four live mic inputs at a time with no issues and it works for live stuff as it's a full mixer. But it's more expensive so maybe for later.
