    How you put your home studio together depends on a few things. budget, sound quality, and space. What do you plan on doing in your studio? original material? or just a way to record your singing?

    I prefer simple. You can get stand alone DAW's, or you can get a turnkey system already built into a computer so all you have to do is plug it in, and go, but the turnkey systems are pricey.

    Peace, Tony

    Mind blown I think ill focus on voice till i get more in tune to what i want. But just a true recording of myself honestly to start.

    Tascam, Fostex, Zoom make hand held two track recorders. Very good to high quality with reverb and echo effects . They cost somewhere around a hundred dollars.
    You can plug in an instrument, or music one one track, and plug a mic in on the second.
    They run on electricity or battery so you can record anywhere at anytime.

    Let's not forget the trusty (and portable) ZOOM R8.
    It gives you 8 tracks of recording space and can run on either AC or batteries
    Tony and I both have it and can vouch for its quality! :smile:

    Sounds like a good way to get your feet wet with digital recording. The Focusrite comes with Ableton live which is good recording software, and has loops you can use to help write/record songs.

    The reason I mentioned the handheld 2 track was because that is just a plug, and play unit. The software you are about to get into is a little tricky if you're a beginner, but if not it's awesome software.

    Enjoy!

    Peace, Tony
