I'm going to buy some recording equipment tonight.

I plan on getting the mbox 2, and running it through my pc
I'll mainly be doing guitars and vocals, so I'll get a mic too.

I'm just wondering if there's anything else I'll need.
cables, programs, cords, i dnno.

What do i need to plug the box into my pc? will it have it?
I'm sure i can get these answers at the store, but I want to know what I';m getting into before dishing out about $400
And we will weave in and out of sanity unnoticed
Swirling in blissfully restless visions of all our bleary progress
Glowing in radiant madness
With the Mbox, you get everything you need right out of the box to start recording. Have you taken a look at one of these bundles yet: http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/product/Digidesign-Mbox-2-Factory-Studio-Bundle?sku=583511

This comes with a solid pair of studio monitors & a pretty good condenser mic for just a little more than what just an Mbox will cost. Also, if you plan on micing a guitar cab, I would suggest getting either a Sennheiser e609 or a Shure SM57.
