A touch OT here, I admit but:
Like not a few others I´m thinking of doing some home recordings. And not with a phone, since I want better sound quality. (The pictures will be with a phone: we appear to require pictures with music these days. A certain form of decadence, but there you go.)

My harmonica recording I have done through and old RP 150 as ... sound card (?) and that has worked alright (Audacity is on the receiving end) -- unless I want warm, un-distorted sound, which is not to be found in that machine.
But now I´m thinking of adding vocals.

Any pointers on a really inexpensive sound card (if that´s the word?) that can be used in a very un-pretentious context?
What to look for, what to avoid?

Behringer Um2, UM22 or the new Behringer UM22HD. Those are cheap.
Any $100 usb interface would be very good.

I use REAPER as a recording software. It is a bit more complex than audacity, but it works way better for recording. Aksim it is free as long as you like.

You can also use Amplitube as a amps sim:

Sorry for any misspell, english is not my first language.

We have a Canon Powershot camera that does photo and video. It does the job pretty well. A bit over $100.
Music and travel destroy prejudice.

Thank you guys, I´ll check these gadgets out. $100 is about what I´m ready to sacrifice!
