    I'm looking to start recording some of my music at home. Don't need anything professional level, as it will mostly be for my own use. I do need to be able to record guitars, bass, keyboard, and vocals, as well as probably needing a something to program drum beats. So basically, what software/hardware would I need to get started? Not looking for anything amazing here, to be honest since I have no experience it would probably be better for me to start out with less pricey stuff. The only piece of equipment I already own that would be useful at all is a sennheiser e906 for my guitar amp.

    iMac
    Audio interface eg: Apogee Duet or Motu ultralite
    Garageband is built into the iMac.
    The 906 is a great mic.

    the mac isn't exactly an option. I don't have the money to buy a new computer just for recording.

    Email me at jearlyc@comcast.net I have a Digi 001 with a ProTools version that works with XP..I've recorded some nice stuff with it..all you need is a PC with Windows XP 1 card slot and a Gig memory..I just upgraded to a 002 so I have no need for it and will let it go at a very low price..these are very easy to record great music and easy to use...

    Sorry, thought you wanted a computer too
    For PC, the above option sounds good to me. You get to learn PT as the software is nearly identical to the full version and it should sound fine.
