    A Few Different Questions
    I was wondering two things (1) what is a good vocoder plugin for Logic Pro/Garageband/Ableton Live, I'm looking for a sorta Daft Punk soundng one, and (2) what is the best affordable (college budget) MIDI recording interface? Thanks for the help!

    Hi, I cant help with the vocoder, but I assume you mean a midi control surface. Have a look at the Behringer BCF-2000.

    I actually bought one just to see how bad it is, and its surprisingly good! It works perfectly with logic. You can set it to different emulation modes, so no setup is required.

    Have a look at http://www.behringer.com/BCF2000/index.cfm

    Thats looks useful, but I was thinking of more of a audio/MIDI recording interface like the TASCAM US-144. Thanks for showing me that though!

    I've been using the m-audio firewire solo for a while and it hasn't let me down yet. Not sure what your needs are, but m-audio is a solid product and you can usually work the salesman at guitar center for a nice discount. The midi controller I have is that m-audio, tiny blue, oval thing with wires for $30 haha. Cheap little thing registers my hot drum beats with the best of em

    Well college budget audio interface: lexicon alpha definately. It might be a bit basic, but if you only need good quality in and out without bells n whistles, thats the one to get. Note that it doesnt have phantom power though.

    The lexicon alpha looks great for the price but I need something with MIDI in/out also or is a MIDI to USB adapter reliable enough?

    Yeah a usb / midi unit will be fine. The lexicon omega has midi in / out, but at that price there should be other products to consider also.
