I need a USB interface to connect 2 mics, a midi keyboard, and an ipod to a computer, for both live mixing and recording. Hope?

I have: a mac (desktop and laptop), two mics, a midi keyboard, a piano, and a singer. I want a way to connect all that to my computer for recording, and (ideally) for live performance as well. What software and hardware am I missing?
For recording, one track at a time is fine. My guess is I need something like these USB interfaces
. And for live performance, I heard that Apple's Mainstage app
was good. Garage band can probably handle my recording needs.
previous question was helpful, but what's the difference between a $30 and a $500 USB audio interface? Will I notice?
I'd like to do this for under $1000 if possible.
