Uhh. Ok, Im setting up my own mini home studio. I got the instruments (Piano, guitars, mic, etc), I got the program (currently using Adobe Audition), but I need the equipment. I was thinking of buying a small 6 port Stereo Mixer, since all I'll be recording is electro-acoustic guitars (plugged in) and vocals. Anyone know the equipment ill need for this? also, how to plug in a stereo mixer into my computer? my girlfriend is gonna let me borrow her boss bx600 while I find which mixer to buy, so I wanna know how to plug it, cause she doesnt know how x_x (her dad knows, but i never get a chance t talk to him)
You don't want a mixer, you want a firewire interface. Something like a Presonus Firepod/Firestudio. It will allow you to record multiple sources onto their own tracks right into your computer.
Okay... whats the cheapest one? (for acoustic) And what can I do to connect my mic? just get a 1/8" to 1/4" converter?
Your mic plugs into the XLR/TRS connectors on the interface.

Exactly how much are you able to spend?
