M-Audio Fast Track or a Line 6 Toneport.

Simple USB interface is what you need.

A USB interface should do the trick. I have a cheap Behringer mic and it works fine, noiseless recordings.

I bought a Line 6 UX2 a couple weeks ago, comes bundled with Pod Farm (amp sims/effects etc)+ Ableton, Riffworks & Reason pretty good value, USB minimal setup.

I have used things made by M-Audio and PreSonus. Look for something with the number of mic and instrument inputs that you need and go from there.

I record with a MXL USB Condenser mic with a foam cover over the top to reduce background noise. It works pretty good and I usually get a pretty good, verrry limited background noise recordings. Cheap, easy, and more convenient for me anyways.
