    Hi guys,

    I just joined this great community.

    I want to create a circuit to record my guitar songs. I have limited budget so i cant buy a usb soundcard also i interested in electronics.

    I am planning to make 2 or 3 (that's about microcontroller) inputs and usb sound output. I am a programmer so i can get sound input from usb and record that into a file. That part of projects isnt a problem.

    I was searching all the day long, i couldnt get any real resource.

    Here, my questions,

    Can adc made by microcontroller, (i prefer PIC)
    Is it possible to make 3 inputs for audio? (2 guitars a vocal :D )
    Which microcontroller should i use?

    I think this informations is enough for me for now, i can get other information by search in this forum i know.

    Thank you guys! Regards!

    Sure, some have multiple ADC inputs along with USB ports.

    See #1

    Don't. You'll only have 10 bit audio, lots of noise problems, and it will cost you way more then going to the store and buying a sound card.

    If you want to save money get a sound card from China off Ebay.

    Pretty much all PCs and Laptops etc these days have sound cards already built in. There should be a 3.5mm stereo jack socket for line in or mic in.
