How do you record?

Ben Fleury-Steiner:
I know this was a topic in the previous board, but I really would benefit from some advice.  I'd like to purchase a cost-effective, portable set up for my PC.  I've recently switched to Ableton Live and really like it, so I'm talking interfaces.  If I recall APK mentioned a very affordable "small tower" of sorts with lots of connectors for mics and the like - that one that caught my interest especially...thanks again!

Well, most of the people i'm talking to dont believe me when
i tell them the facts about my Devices. ;D

There is my Laptop (standard everyday Laptop, nothing special) with build-in Soundcard.
So basically the sound from my guitar + the effects went directly into the onboard soundcard
straight to Ableton Live.

I'm also kind of amazed, how clear the quality of the recordings is.
So i guess i cant complain, but perhaps a bit more CPU Power
could be great.

That 'tower' interface was the Focusrite "Saffire LE".
Its very good for the money.

BIG thanks, Tony.  That's the one I'm after. BTW, since everyone''s gushing about it, Tony, what do you think of Live? 

I don't use Live (I use Sonar, and recently getting into Reaper because of the great routing and ease of recording of VSTi's live), but I have used it and think its excellent - solid program (code) and well designed. If I used sample loops I'd certainly switch to it 'cause its unmatched in that area and so user-friendly. Plus, as a live stage platform for manipulating loops on the fly its brilliant. Manipulating loops is its forté, but its a fine sequencer in its own right.
