    I'm from Worcester MA. I play guitars, mando, banjo, dobro and have lots' of toyz.

    After several years of procrastination, I finally bought a decent digital recorder (Tascam DP01FX/CD). I have 2 AKG C3000s and 2 AKG C1000S condensors in addition to several Shure SM58,SM57,beta 58's and a Shure 55. I also own 2 Mackie mixers (1604 for the studio and 1402 for travel).
    I could go on about gear. Right now I plan to add a Alesis drum machine and a decent set of recording monitors to my studio. Any advice, especially on finding a good set of *passive* monitors would be greatly appreciated.

    My friends call me Mark, but you'all can call me drive-south.

    My goal is to be able to record practice sessions and multi-track our original tunes and a few covers for a demo disk. So far I've managed to record a few practices and created a stereo master which I burned to the CD burner for my band-mates. Everyone is very impressed and exited about recording our music. At some point in time, we will probably want to rent some studio time in a real studio but right now we need to do a lot of experimentation so we all understand the recording process before we waste money on studio time. I think I'm the only one with any sort of technical no-how and any appreciation of the recording process.
