I would recommend a 4 track self-contained unit like Tascam offers to start. It's easy to operate and gives you basic multi-tracking capabilities. If you're a computer geek there are some great options from Cubase and others. You need to do some research here. Your topic os so vast, it's hard to find a place to start - get some professional help.
Good luck.

You might be better off looking around at something like ProTools free if your computer can handle it, or another cheap computer platform. Sure there might be a bit of a learning curve, but its not that hard. Also, you'll most likely end up going there down the road, so why not just start there. There are lots of cheap computer based recording solutions, that will end up costing you around the same, if not less than a 4 track anyway.

Computer + Pod = recording package, easy7 once you've gotten past the learning curve, and allows you to use up loads of tracks. Apart from that, a digital 8track or the like or something second hand if you want something non-computer based. Still, the POD is usefull.

The Echo Mia is a very useful soundcard and runs for around $180...

i use a PoD and a four track and it suits me fine at the moment, its best to start at the shallow end and learn about what you want to record and how it all works, a freind of mine loads all my stuff into Cubase and mixes it, adds drums ect... im just starting to upgrade now but i suggest only buying one piece of kit at a time, ive seen people buy a whole studio and lose themselves completely!

I have the Line 6 Pod, and what I find is that when you add other pedals (eg: Going from Guitar into whammy, into the pod, then into the computer), the signal reduces quite a lot -- the volume goes down a hell of a lot. What would be the best way to record onto computer using additional pedals?

Mic your amp. The Sennheiser e609 Silver is $99 new, and is a good amp mic. I've also used the Oktava MK319 (requires phantom power) with good results, but that is a bit more suited to vox and acoustics.

Get an Audiophile 2496, a Shure SM57, Cubase SL and a reasonable synth (edirol, yamaha whatever).. you're on! For the late night silent recordings get a V-Amp.. dunno!
