I have the software and a macbook. Plus a guitar I love and a tube amp, a standard mic and a MIDI keyboard/controller.

What would you recommend getting? I use the mic to pick up the tubey sounds or I have a zoom g1x for direct input.

I am on a very limited budget but make your recomendations anyhow.

An interface. A condenser mic for vocals

The PreSonus Audio Box Studio Recording Bundle is a cheap, decent package.

you will want an interface.

what are you recording? track recording, live room recording? 3 piece band, 6 piece, solo stuff?

what instruments do you plan on recording?

you could get by with a small 2-input interface, but if you wanna do some fairly serious live room recording then you may want an 8-input interface. i use presonus.

I am working on solo projects now, occasionaly I will record with friends. I record guitar drums and the Midi keyboard mostly(which I usually use for drums) I also sometimes do vocals and it is track recording.

you can get by with a little 2-input then. a condenser mic would be nice to have, but i don't see it as imperative. just spend a bunch of time on practicing recording.

edit: and post some of your recorded stuff on UG profile. never hurts.

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.
