I'm thinking about starting up a simple home studio but with pretty good quality. I was thinking about getting Alesis MultiMix 12USB Mixer (Dead Link Removed) since its a pretty simple plug and play, I was wondering if I decided to buy a sound card could I plug the main outs of the mixer to the sound card? I'm pretty sure you can but just checking. I was thinking about using Adobe Audition or Cubase (I need help with that dicision) because I heard both were good programs and they are very user friendly to noobs like me. All thats left is looking for a all around condensor microphone preferably 2 pack around 300-500 dollars (im trying to record acoustic guitar and cymbals), and then a vocal microphone preferably around 300 dollars. Is there anything else I should buy to make the sound a better quality with the equipment I am purchasing?
