  1. Hey- i am home recording illiterate. I am trying to build a small home studio for demoing tracks before I could to a full studio. I don't know whether or not I should go usb interface, what programs, mics, and midi's to use? Or should I use a digital workstation with burner. I want to be able to create lots of sounds as well as recording acoustic and electric, and paino. Not sure what to do. I have limited budget as well. Please Help

    Here's what to do:

    go to computer store and get a laptop PC. go to the music store and get the alesis usb io for $149 (comes with cubase LE), a shure sm57 mic $99, and a mic stand. Get 48 pcs 3" wedge foam from the foam factory on ebay for $67. the foam comes with spray glue, put the foam at random places around the room and in all the corners.
  3. lots of sounds? of you meen electronica music or beat making. two words... Fruity Loops its an amazing program and the demo is all i need wich you find on the fruityloops site for free. It takes some time to get used to but its WOW! ♥ about the other stuff lsten to tht guy. i have been trying to get my hands on Cubase. but pricey and me no money

    you could also get the m-audio 24/96 audiophile sound card which the one I bought a while back came with cu base and live lite-4.
