    Well, I am a gigging musician that am now considering setting up a DAW, I have a room that will suffice for now however, do not know anything about getting started,

    Ill tell you what I do have,

    Casio Privia Digital Piano
    Tascam Basic 2 Track Recording Station
    Microphones
    A HP Media Center PC, which has every kind of input imaginable it seems
    Both Electric and Acustic Guitars

    This is what I want (for now)
    - To be able to use guitars, vocals and piano in my DIGITAL recordings.

    This is what im clueless about:
    - Recording Digitally
    - Midi Interfaces
    - Basic Neccecities


    Any websites, advice or anything will be greatly appreciated.

    thanks

    Welcome to RO! This website has a great search function (top of the page). The first thing I'd suggest you do is use this function to read previous posts. This will give you a good base in the overall principles you are looking for. Good Luck!

    Figure out your budget. It will allow you to discard discussions about things you cannot afford when you search for:

    Monitors

    Mixing

    A/D - D/A interface

    Pre amps

    Microphones

    Soundproofing

    Plug-ins


    Getting started is a huge topic and, as nice as the folks are here at RO, we hate repeating ourselves every other week.

    Also, from now on, be very specific, even when describing your gear; what kind of mic do you have? How much RAM do you have on your PC? How many MIDI devices will you be using? How many tracks do you anticipate recording simultaneously?

    Good luck and have fun.
