Hi,

I'm thinking about buying a new sound card for recording guitar. As mos=
t recommendations I've seen on the Net are quite old (latest I could ge=
t was from 2012), I'm asking here to get more current information :-)

My current setup is a V-Amp 2 connected through the headphones' output =
and a stereo jack to the line-in input in my computer. It's got an AMD =
Phenom 945, 12GB RAM and a built-in HDA Intel clone. It works, but it's=
noisy and I think it distorts sound when I pump up the volume. I've al=
so tried a Behringer UCG-102, but it adds a hefty amount of latency (60-70 =
ms as measured by qjackctl).

I'm not searching for anything "pro", just something cheap (&=
lt;150=80) to play and sometimes record at home. I wouldn't mind a PCI/=
PCIe card, though I worry that two or three years from now computers stop c=
arrying PCI slots and I have to get rid of it. Searching for USB compatible=
devices, I've seen the Shappire 2i2, but reports of it working on Linu=
x are mixed. A pity, because it sure looks good :-)

So, based on this, what would you recommend?

Thanks in advance,
