I decided I want to record direct into my computer. I been using a Nikon 5300 and external mike and its okay but nothing like the clips I hear direct recorded. So I am not looking for the best just the basic to get me started. Sweetwaters has the WAVES GTR 3 PLUGIN AND Berringer UMC 404 HD interface all for less than a $100 . My computer is windows 8.1 R CORE tm-2 quad 9300 with 8gb. And ideas. I just to be able to post guitar clips that sound good. I did download reaper but have no way to get my guitar sound into the computer. Thanks for any input.
