Hi everyone, fairly new to all this stuff. I'd love to record some songs in garageband using my electic and acoustic guitars, and a microphone for vocals. I soon learnt for this I'd require a digital audio interface so I began my research.


I'm on a Macbook air so I saw I'd need one that runs from USB... and after a bit more searching I found Apogee seem to be a recommendable company.


Can anyone point me in the direction of one of their products (or any companies' product) that will do the job of recording my guitar (from a standard jack cable) and my vocals (from a standard band-style microphone) that will 100% work with Garageband on my Macbook Air via USB? I'm on a budget of as cheap-as- possible, but I'd like a fair amount of quality in the product, so any price you can reccomend will be considered.


Any help is greatley appreciated, apologies if this is not the relevant section or even site to ask this question.

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.5), Memory: 4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
