Hi everyone, I've been wanting to make a proper recording studio in my house for quite a while now, the problem is, I don't really know where to start! I would like to produce electronic based music (synths, drum machines etc) but once in a while, I would like to do some accoustic stuff (I play guitar and I'm a singer - I would also like to use sampling on my songs with singers). It's probably best I take you through what I currently have: Arcam FMJ A32 amplifier with PMC OB1i speakers, Yamaha MiDi keyboard from 2001 £300, Creative Audigy 2 ZS Platinum Pro Sound Card, Cheap £30 Stag mic (don't ask!) Really nice £2000 Vista PC (built by myself ). :lol: Apart from the hi-fi system and the PC, I guess the rest needs updating. I was planning to do a setup consisting of synths going into a mixer or good stereo soundcard (best quality available please) and into a sequencing programme such as Cubase or whatever. Is this what I would do to produce my own music in the same sort of style as Progidy, Massive Attack, Paul Okenfold, Van Halen (and plenty more). I would also need a mic for recording accoustic stuff and samples. I would appreciate it if anyone could help me set-up a er... set-up! Budget is around £2000. Many thanks!!! -oh, ps...vintage stuff gets the full from me!!! Love the stuff!!! I've always wanted a Linn Drum Machine and an old Oberheim OB-X!
