Hey guys, I have been looking arround on this site and it has helped me out with learning new things that I had never thought, or knew about before. My interest in recording has brought me this far and I think im going to take the next step and actually buy something… Ok heres my story,, I am really interested in the whole (computer recording) deal,, I love it and have done a bit of it myself, and know I want to go off get my own stuff. all I really have at the present time is my guitar, and other instruments that I am planing to record…when I start recording. Because I am going to school In the near future I have thought about getting a new computer,. So this is not that big of a deal on the money issue, because I am getting hooked up largley with a mint computer.. ( I cant catergorize the style of music but it is acoustic style with other instruments.acoustic guitar, d jembe, piano and sometimes full drums) the thing is I am going to have to go out and buy is basicaly the nessesities that I need to record with good results, but that is not that extremley expensive) which I am willing to do. . .I have learned of many different styles\setups thanks to this site and from researching.. I am looking towards the soundcard , then out to a mixer and then plug my instruments straight into the mixer..what size mixer should I buy and should it be annolouge or digital? Do I even need a mixer?? If the soundcard has mic pres in it,,? I am pretty lost in what to do,, If you guys have any suggestions at all or any equipment you think I should check out, I would appretiate that so largley The main thing that I am trying to get out of this post is,, what should i buy. I don’t really want to throw out money for things that I don’t need..
