My friend recommend that I get Pro Tools m-powered, but I just saw the price and don't think I could afford something like that right now. Is there anything that you would recommend that is a little cheaper, but I could still record guitar, piano, and vocals onto and then be able to mix it all together? Thanks

Reaper is probably the best Free recording software (which i think will let you use VST plugins, i would have to take a look at it.)

but
I use cubase. still getting the hand of recording programs
remember, getting a good sounds is not necessarily mean you have to get the fancy software. or what not.

I tried a POD out and it sounded beautiful. Now i don't want to plug my guitar into my computer directly, until i get an interface.
but thats i different story

Reaper can use VST plugins easily.

It comes bundled with many, and a lot of them are of good quality.

I know a guy on another forum who has done work with the likes of Megadeth, Sheryl Crow and Gin Blossoms who swears by Reaper.

And Cubase is very expensive. Worth it, mind you, but very expensive.

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?

I know it sounds crazy, but try to learn to inhale your voice. www.thebelcantotechnique.com

I have a quick question about reaper. I don't know much about this stuff, but would I be able to somehow hook a microphone up to my laptop, and then be able to directly record into reaper or pro tools or any of these other programs and record guitar or voice?

If its a USB mic then ya. But other than that you need an interface first.

Lol I use a Rockband mic to record

Yeah really.

Many use ReEQ, ReGate, and ReXcomp tons of times, me included. They get the job done.

Some even use more Re(XXX) plugins that I can not name off the top of my head.

If i was you i would get an interface like the m-audio fast track pro, or a lesser one, then get a decent mic and some free software.

Ableton live 8.1.3 comes with fast track pro but im not sure how this compares to the free programs yet.

Another vote for Reaper. It's got a nice trial period and is very affordable. The latest version is very nice as well.

Either buy an audio interface and microphone with XLR connection or a USB mic.
Some comparisons between USB mics:
