@laird and childj - $2k is what i got for basically the computer and audio interface. other equipment can come later. it's definitely a hobby, albeit expensive. i don't think i'll be doing more than just making music for myself, friends. and having friends come over to record stuff. i might have the...

... personally I'd rather spend that extra money on a good audio interface, monitors, etc.. I don't know how much gear you already have, but things other than your comp soon add up. Apart from your sound card, things to consider in your budget are -monitors and isolation pads -headphones -mic's and...

@ewistrand - i've searched online for a "how to" guide of building your own rig, but most of them are dated, like 05 to 06. does anyone have a recent how to? i built computers back in high school, so i technically "know how." i guess i just don't know what parts to buy. i've been searching newegg. a...

@beats me - if not m-audio, what do you recommend? and if not pc, i know mac, but what is it about mac that is better? i am up for debate, i guess is what i'm trying to say. @laird - i have been trying to figure out the benefits of pci vs usb sound cards. i guess i was under the assumption pci would...
