First off, I'm completely new to this so please have patience.
I wish to setup a home recording studio capable of recording vocals, guitars, piano and so on. What I would like to know is; What are some good ( i.e. best "bang for buck") audio interfaces that are compatible with what is running on my PC, and also what what kind of set-up would be most efficient? (i.e. mixer/soundcard or AI/soundcard etc. etc.)
- Ubuntu Studio 12.04
- Ardour as a DAW
- Condenser Mic (Phantom Power needed) (XLR)
- Instruments (w/ leads etc.)
