Hello all, I'm starting to get into the whole recording thing. I have a lot of questions, but I'll ask the most important one first. How do I start? The producer of my bands debut album told me I should get a computer devoted to just recording, an audio interface, mixer, and of course mics. I'm getting a laptop soon, but I'm not sure of the power it needs to handle recording. He told me to get the Motu 8pre Audio Interface: (Dead Link Removed) Now is there a better interface I can get for that price? Or am I better of with a different one or what? Mixer...I have one. 8 Channel mixer Behringer Eurorack UB2222FX-PRO. Mics I have a few in mind I don't need help with that. I'm gonna be recording I'd say mainly drums because I'm a drummer but I also play other instruments and want to record a lot of my own solo projects. Where do I start? What specs on the computer? What interface? and if there is anything else that is necessary please share. Thank you.
