    I'm going to guess that, like me, you're not a high end pro with lots of gear and knowledge, or you wouldn't likely be asking this question.

    If I were just starting out...hey wait a minute...I am just starting out!

    I'd first buy "How to build a small budget recording studio from scratch," by Mike Shea (ISBN0-07-138700-5), because if your room sucks, EVERYTHING sucks.

    Then I'd buy "The audio pro home recording course," by Bill Gibson. This comes in two volumes, has 4 CD's of audio examples you can hear, and I would think that from it, one could learn all one needed to to create decent recordings.

    Back in the day of Alesis ADAT recorders, I made a whole record with my band from Michael Molenda's book: "Making the Ultimate Demo" It's a bit dated regarding equipment(1993) but the recording techniques should be tried and true, and they guy who mixed it for us told me it had been well recorded.

    That's my 2 cents.
