Hi, I am looking for a budget ($100 - $200 max) USB interface for recording. I am currently using a Line 6 TonePort UX2. I have been very happy with it, that is until I tried Peavey's Revalver MKIII and Waves GTR Solo. Tone and feel wise, the amp models are just several steps better than what the Gearbox software can do. The problem is, I am having a hardtime getting the UX2 to play nice with these other pieces of software. I am using ASIO to interface and I am getting too much latency. I really like that the TonePort has "zero" latency monitoring and that it works perfectly as a standalone. I much prefer standalones to plugins. In fact I rarely use plugins, I like to hear what I am playing right then and there. So my questions are: Is latency just a given when we are talking about most standalones? Have I been spoiled by Line 6's "Direct Monitoring"? Should the UX2 be able to work with the other software I mentioned? Maybe I am just configuring something wrong? If you would recommend another USB Interface, which one and why? Your thoughts on any or all of the above are welcome. As a side note: I see that Line 6 now has new interfaces that look like the old TonePorts with a makeover. I assume these are replacements as the price has dropped on the older Toneports. I wonder what the big difference is. They are bundled with a new Pod farm plugin. I wonder if those would be better than the UX2 as far as working with other software? Oddly the sound sampes sound better than the UX2.
