I'm going to get one of these from the local music shop next week.
They are quite cheap & if nothing else it will allow me to record myself for practice purposes.

I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with these?

http://www.behringer.com/UCG102/

From what I gather the package includes 30 day trial versions of 3 different amp combos. After that you pick the 1 you want & download it.
It also includes "Kristal Audio Engine multi-track sequencer and Audacity audio editor". - does anyone have any knowledge of these pieces of software?

For $75 would this be a good purchase or are there better ways to go?
I'm not too keen to spend alot of money & all I really want is to be able to listen back to myself playing (to hear where I am lacking) & also create backing tracks to jam with.

Thanks in advance for any assistance. biggrin.gif

Those are fine if you have the soundcard from hell, if not (like 95% of the population) it won't sound too great. Unless you have swapped out your soundcard, chances are you won't get what your looking for. I'd suggest a Line 6 Toneport; they work great and don't bust the bank.

I wonder if perhaps you already have an USB interface for PC, in case, I suggest you the Fast Track Usb from M-Audio, does its job and price's not prohibitive.
I admit I wonder about the purposes of an USB guitar if you already have a USB interface...
Personally i record simply using mu guitar + the amplifier + the fast track, that is enough to get a true amp sound, with my own guitar.
For what concerns the software, I have never tried "kristal Audio engine" but I have installed a version "Audacity" (which btw is freeware) and I don't like it for it doesn't work with USB sound input but only with mic.
In the end I suggest you to buy a USB card and maybe to get with Emule a version of Cubase or the audio editor you prefer..... if you haven't already done it, that's clear smile.gif

I didn't hear good things about this interface..Considering the price I would suggest any of the Line6 toneport device starting from the GX model..You get much better software support and everything...I think they are the same price..
Check out their website : http://line6.com/toneportgx/

I've been looking into this myself and I've heard/read all good things about Line6, so tht's what I'm going with. I ordered the Gx just to get started. For what I want to accomplish that seems enough.

Thanks heaps for all the comments, guys.
I now realise there were quite a few threads about this type of stuff.

After reading as many as I could I ended up ordering the Line6 Toneport UX1 last night.
I should get it in about a week. biggrin.gif
