Topic Audio Interfaces - Ive chosen 8 but which one would be best?
Hi All!
Edit: The list of audio interfaces is at the bottom of this post in code tags, its the only way I could lay it out in a table format.

Ok so ive decided for my beginners home studio I need an audio interface as I would like to record vocals, acoustic guitar, base and some other instruments (sometimes together, sometimes individually).

My budget for the audio interface is £300 which has left me with a staggering number of choices - im very confused!

Ive narrowed it down to the following list due to my requirements for 3+ inputs, firewire, midi inputs and PC compatibility.

Given that I have no idea of the difference between any of these, would you guys have any reccomendations which one to choose or which ones to stay away from.

Also are there any other good choices that I have missed?

Thanks very much,
AM.

Well, i think you can't go wrong with one of the following:

the Motus
the presonus
or the TC Electronic Konnekt 24D 4 2 2

these are top notch brands with solid experience and reputation.

I agree with kon. Presonus and MOTU are pretty good entry line. I haven't experienced much with the TC but I have not heard anything bad about them.
