    Interface : PreSonus FireStudio FireWire Recording Interface ($700)
    OR : M-Audio ProFire 2626 ($700)

    Vocal Mic : Shure KSM27 Studio Condenser Microphone ($300)

    Drum Mics : Shure PG 6-Piece Drum Microphone Package ($400)

    Software : Cakewalk SONAR 7 Producer Edition ($500)

    Inst Mics : Shure SM94 Recording Microphone (2) ($180 x 2 = $360)

    Cables : Mogami Gold Neglex Quad Microphone cable for Studio Neutrik XLR (6) ($36 x 6 = $216)

    i was also thinking for drums using my vocal mic for a snare mic, get 3 sm 57's for tom mics, get a shure beta 52a for kick and using my 2 sm94's for overheads

    Seems to me, you'd be much better off buying a Digi 003, an Audix Drum mic package, an SM57 for guitars, an SM7 for vocals, and a nice set of monitors. Should be around the same price, maybe just a bit over but that'd be a much better setup in the long run.

    The fidelity will be much better and you'll be learning the industry standard software and you'll be compatible with pretty much every big studio on the planet if/when you need to track and/or mix elsewhere.
