Need some help getting over my confusion. I've been toying with the idea of being able to record my playing and some research on the web and this very sub forum has given me the basic understanding of what I might need. Now I've seen a few posts where people have advised the Focusrite products over the Behringer ones. I'm not totally sure why but as it's multiple people I guess there most be a good reason for it.
Now I'm coming to this from the direction of someone who just really wants to have the ability to record a guitar through cable rather than a miked amp. I just want to be able to generally mess about, have a bit of fun, laying down a guitar part(s) over other backing tracks and be able to add effects through the DAW. I'm really thinking just to keep a record of my progress as a player and possibly be able to share things with others at some point and just being a bit creative. I'm most certainly not looking to build a private studio or become a songwriter or anything like that.
So with that in mind, coupled with the fact that the Behringer is a third of the price of the Focusrite and pretty much in 'beer money' territory would it be a huge mistake to go the cheap route? I appreciate that you probably 'get what you pay for' but given the modest requirements I have is that a problem?
If it helps I'm pretty computer literate, have a reasonable PC (ex gaming rig) that the DAW will run on so I'm hoping that part of the equation will not present too many problems.
