    Hey everyone I'm new to these forums, and I'm new to pro audio. I would like to get some suggestions on equipment/gear I would need to get basic recording started, if you could put in links to items I would need that would also be helpful, So I could figure out a rough money estimate! Thanks

    Threre's a very wide range to choose from. In order to keep the dissention at a minimum, some input from you would help.

    Do you have any gear you will be using along with the new items you purchase?

    What will you be recording, will it be one track at a time or drums bass guitars vocals in one pass?

    What do plan to use to record with, DAW, stand alone digital system, or old school console / tape recorder?

    I current have NOTHING, I'm starting from absolute scratch... I would like to record by doing one thing at a time versus recording everything at once. And I'd like to do it digitally

    Are you planning to work by yourself? What do you do, play, guitar, ... keys? Are you recording acoustic instruments, samplers and loops midi based sounds ???? Do you need monitors as well? How big is your control room ??? .. All this is part of the question.

    How much do you want to spend.? We can specify sytems that range from $500 for the most basic 8 tracks to over $10,000 or even more .... "need input".

    Hey man,
    Why don't you browse the site for a while before you take any grocery list that we might come up with for you to Guitar Centro and end up buying stuff you don't actually need. Do some browsing and lurking, ask more specific questions on things that don't make sense, and try not to rush into buying things that you don't understand yet. :)

    You can record digitally on a computer, or you can get a stand-alone digital mixer/recorder and do everything in it. Do some research and figure out which method you would be more comfortable with.
