    Any recommendations on inexpensive interfaces. I', not looking to spend over about $100 and want at least two ins. Thanks.

    M-audio makes some decent cheap stuff but for two ins I think it'll probably run about $150.

    ^^ Agree.

    Why multiple inputs? Doing live tracking?
    If you have a small mixer you could make use of a cheaper, single input interface.

    Check out the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2. Should do everything you need and run about $125 new.

    Steinberg CI1. I'm having an issue with it not turning on and I'll check back with you to tell you if it's my fault or if the device has a problem. I got mine for $80 at MF

    Lot of choices at that price point.
    Can go with a pedal that has USB in like the Zoom 2.1u (used will hit your price), or you can go with a Lexicon Alpha, ART Pre USB, M-Audio, or TASCAM.

    I have NI KA6 but at this price this is the answer IMO

    I have a Lexicon Lambda. It's USB and plug n play, so you don't need special software to run it. Works great. They go for $100 to 150.

    PS. I have a Presonus FireWire Studio - needed more ports - but I keep the Lex around for its portability.

    It's about $250 but Tascam's US1800 is pretty awesome.
