alright guys, i've written a few songs of my own and i was wondering.how the hell am i supposed to record them? i've seen bands record in a studio before and i was wondering,what are the basic equipment that i must have to record them so that i can play them back on my phone,ipod whatever,without other unwanted noises. any suggestions?
You need:

A Computer
A DAW (digital audio workstation) IE: Logic, Cubase, Reaper, Pro Tools, etc. etc. etc...
An Interface (something to plug mics into that makes em go to the comp, in laymans terms)
Monitors (speakers with a flat respone)
how much are those??(except the computer yeah?) and where do i find them? i don't think they are available in shops that sells guitars right? gotta be some place that sells home theatre stuffs?
