Default USB Recording Interface!!

Hey all!
Im looking to buy a USB recording interface that can record at least 4 tracks at the same time (in 4 seperate channels).
Unfortunately i am unable to use firewire as my laptop doesn't have a firewire port :(
My budget is no more than 230 for all this.......it doesn't need to be 8 pre amps , just 4 so i can record 2 overheads , one kick and one snare :).
Cheers all!

Looks reasonable. That should work fine. I use a Line 6 interface that is really great - just wondering if there is a four-channel version. If so, I would recommend that for the money. I use a Line 6 TonePort UX8 and a smaller version of that would certainly be worth looking into.

Any interface should put the different channels into different tracks. What kind of software are you going to be recording with?

Cubase or Mixcraft. Most proberly Cubase.
My old mixer couldn't record more than 2 stereo tracks though? It was outputting via RCA out the mixer.

Because you were using the RCA Output.

These devices with USB or FireWire do the A/D Conversion and then simply put the binary data into the computer directly. A 'normal' mixer doesn't do the A/D Conversion and you're dealing with a purely analogue signal.
