    I would like to be able to record sound samples, but I don't have protools or the like... What is the most economical way to record to my laptop? Is there a way to plug my beta 57/mic pre into my mic input on the computer?

    I don't need fancy editing software just a way to record a few tracks that sound decent, as apposed to the compressed format my little digital Korg 4 track offers. Sorry if I come off as completely ignorant of digital audio, the simple fact is... I am.

    Thanks

    I've been using Audacity for a few months as a learning tool using the loop function. In the last 2 days I've been recording with it and like it so far. That is if I can figure out a couple of small things I don't know how to do.

    So far it's bee pretty simple and it interfaces seemlessly with the Tascam US122 I'm using.

    Also recognizes my M-Audio Rev 7.1.

    Yeah, I'm going to try some of this software out, I just need to get an inexpensive audio interface. All I want it for is to record sound samples and some basic song ideas. I'm not looking to record my next big hit....

    I have about 7 g's of pedals, but I can't drop the coin on an Mbox, LOL!
