If you want to record with your PC, you're going to need an audio interface. Cheaper audio interfaces have 1-2 mic inputs, meaning you can only record 2 tracks at a time. So if you want to record drums, 2 mics isn't really enough.

The more expensive interfaces have 8+ which is usually enough to record everything track by track.


Basically you need Mics + Audio interface + Computer with recording software

well for a beginner Reaper is a good program. It allows you to record multiple mics at a time. Also your gonna want some good mics. a mixer would do good. get a usb compatible one (or firewire if you have a mac) and try it out. http://www.sweetwater.com/feature/daw/ this is a good article.
