    Hello all,
    I have never really used music production software or hardware before but wish to develope an adequate home studio....Can anyone recommend a decent standard yet user friendly package, that I can link to my pc? My requirements are that it'll will need to record live drums as well as inputted instruments, samplers etc.

    In short....I know nothing about this.....what EXACTLY do i need to record from home on my laptop..mixers? P.a? I really dont know. You wont insult my intelligence just reel off the obvious!

    Newby Scott.

    I reccomend buying a book, reading magazines, and getting a basic understanding about "Sound Chain"(the way sound travels from input to output), and mic placement for drums(crucial), and instrumets. It's really easy nowadys (with computers being readily available to everyone) to skip steps and miss out on some fundamental building blocks about the mechanics of sound.

    Good luck,

    Hope you make some smashing tunes,

    Festa
