    I'm a jazz guitarist who is looking for an inexpensive way to record my guitar on top of prerecorded CDs and MP3 files using a Windows XP laptop to later create MP3 files or burn to CD. I would also like additional features, such as tone selection and metronome which would be helpful for quietly practising without the background CD or MP3 files.

    Can you help me? Thank you!

    Kind of synonymous with cheap, capable and easy.... Also very light on the computer resources as I recall.

    +1 I really like reaper and it's fairly straight forward if you have any recording expereience. It also has a click but I would recommend you get a free demo version of addictive drums as it sounds much better than the supplied click... and even basic beats are more fun to practice against!

    Good luck

    Have you looked at toneports for interfaces yet? I know line 6 has a love hate relationship with many musicians but for a budget interface, this describes what you are looking for:
