    I have nooo idead what I need or what I have to buy. I have used a CO1U Usb mic...but didn't really like cause I couldn't hear myself in the headphones. I'm looking to record using a mixer or something non digital or half digital. I have NO equipment,mics, or anything. Just headphones. I would like to now the basics of what I will need and what would be good. I'm doing mostly hip-hop things. Links would be great...Thank you very much for any links or help.

    5k is a good start!

    I'd get a nice vocal mic (Neumann TLM103), an audio interface (maybe a Mbox or 002 rack) and a controller keyboard (X-Station perhaps). Then buy a couple decent soft synths or a hardware synth (Tritons are popular amongst the hip-hop crowd). With all the necessary leads etc, that'll be just about hitting the 5k mark...

    Check out the tweakheadz guide for some info for beginners

    Of course, having a decently spec'd computer is a must. I'd start with that first up...
