These, days there are a lot of audio interfaces out there that are ready to suit any price point.

With Steinberg, you also get Cubase AI, A version of one of the industry standard compositional software packages on the market; and a world away from free audio software like Audacity.
Plug your mic into the UR12s D-PRE preamp that has +48v phantom power if you need it. Or plug a guitar in through the Hi-Z input and set the levels with the onboard controls. Each input has a peak light so that you can set the perfect level, and listen back directly through an easy to reach headphone input on the front panel. Plug your speakers in the back and your ready to go!
