    what's a good software for recording simple riffs on guitar and/bass? i have an amp that has a hot output, which in my experience has given me a lot of feedback.

    i have a rev.4 12" pb.

    thanks.

    Gargeband or Live 4 or Live 5. I mostly use garageband for getting the riffs that I want, then I record it in Live 4. I am using a Boss GT-6 floor multi-effects pedal. I run that through an M-Audio Firewire Solo.

    Yup I just bought my M-Audio F/W 410 interface a few weeks ago.

    I've got the gear and tons of recording experience, but learning the software presents a tremendous learning curve for me.

    ProTools just came out with a new MBox 2, but it's still USB, so you're actually better of with an M-Audio F/W interface that can handle Garage Band, Live, Logic, Motu, Cubase OR ProTools M-Powered.

    If you're recording acoustic or vocals it really helps
    to have a minimum 2 simultaneous mike inputs.

    Stay away from m-audio's guitar usb interface. It's the cheapest of the interfaces. I think it's about $100. Don't buy it. There is a terrible delay when playing the guitar through it. It's only USB 1.1 not USB 2.0. Pay $200 and get the m-audio firewire solo. You can also put a mic into it and play and sing at the same time.

    You do not want to HOT plug any M-Audio F/W
    interfaces into your system period!
    Still they are far superior to any USB device.

    I'm actually very surprised that the brand new M-Box
    is still USB 1.1
    How stooopid Digidesign.
