    Here is a noobie ?. I have a Gateway Core 2 Duo Laptop, and I've been reading all of the stuff about needing 2 computers/harddrives, and was hoping someone could give me some pointers about getting this HP Pavilion 734 desktop, that I pulled out of the garage hooked up correctly, and were to put what as far as software, DAW, etc, and what to use each unit for. I don't have much so far. Here is the list;
    -Yamah S90es Keyboard w/mLan
    -PreSonus FireStudio
    -The 2 computers, ( Core 2 Duo laptop and P4 desktop
    -Cubase LE and the rest of the plug-in stuff that came with it all.
    -Also an SM58 mic and a Faderport.
    The goal, for now anyway, is to better learn the keys and theory and to learn about the whole digital music thing. Thanks, rlharv2

    Welcome to RO. First, the search button is your friend.

    Second, I'm not sure what info you've been reading to make you think you need 2 computers. 1 for tracking, 1 for mastering??? or ??? Whatever it is, you don't need 2. An additional hard drive (internal or external) is not only a really good idea, it is becoming almost a requirement.

    To learn the theory there are a bunch of web based music theory sites, many free, or inexpensive software options.

    Start with that and the search button and see if you can ask specific questions.
