ok, so I went into guitar center to look for one thing today and left with a few things and NOT the thing I wanted. here is what I baught... M audio Radium49 usb midi keyboard controller. yamaha mg12/4 mixer. and M audio Delta 44. the delta 44 comes with ableton livelite 4. How is that software? So far thats a bulk of my gear. I have some studio headphones, crappy yamaha monitors, one shure sm58 and one 57, and a bunch of cables. I guess you have to start somewhere!!!!
