I am looking into starting to record my own music and was wondering about how to go about seting up a portable recording station using my pc, and I have no idea where to start. Any help would be much appreciated.

Well if you get a mixer or a cheap PA, use the line out direct to the computer. Thats what ive got in my shed and it comes out very good qaulity, theres i mic above the drums in the middle abouta metre above, 1 on the bassdrum and one on the snare and it sounds good. then just mic the guitar amps up with a single mic on each and your set.

It depends what you want to do... If you just want to record yourself, those line6 things seem to do a preety good job ive heard.... If you want to do full band recordings id highly recomend getting a presonus firepod (8 simultaneous input interface) that you link to your computer via firewire, then record with cubase le... Works verry well... I have a Rode NT1 for vocals/acoustic guitars/sitar etc, shure sm57's for snare drum and guitars, DI the bass straight into the firepod, a behragh dynamic for the bass drum and two seinheisers for the overheads for the drums.... Also got a couple of nice KRK monitors....That cost me in total about $3000AUD with cables and stands etc
