    im just setting up my home studio.. currently cleaning out a room with a door directy to the garden which is nice =) but its home with the downstairs toilet which sucks.
    buit i just orderd a 1ghz pc with 256mb RAM 30gig ATA 100 7200rpm hard-drive and platinum 5.1 soundcard. digital surround speakers, and all the other bits and pieces.
    i got cubase, reason, fruity loops, cool edit, soundforge. - anyhting else you recomend?
    i have my decks a couple mic's a few guitars, a drum kit some bongo's a keyboard and stuff..
    just wondering if there is nyhting else i need..
    I want to get a small mixing desk and some deacent PA speakers. but is there anyhting else i need..
    i dont really want to much outboard stuff.
    but any suggestions?

    i was gonna say Mackie, get a Mackie, they have a great sound, but then again, maybe you should go for a digital mixing desk, or even a digital dj mixer could be good. Tricky could advise more accurately about that.

    www.mackie.com - excellent mixers for the price. I'm getting a Mackie 1604 desk for my home studio.

    I had a MACKIE 1604 VLZ PRO for a few months (had to sell it when i moved out of France) and it was indeed a very nice analog mixer.

    One thing though, if you are a computer/techno freak, you should consider a 2nd hand YAMAHA 01R... it is a very good digital mixer.

    good luck

    isnt this home studio forum neat

    ooh.. im not a computer or techno freak..
    i really wanted an all outboard studio, but its much more expensive.
    im going to be recording alota accoustic guitar and vocals.. but im going to make electronic music as well..
    like funkstorung.. they are amazing.
    but ive never done that before.. so this is the beginning of my adventure into instruments that i dont strum or hit!

    I got a Promix01 and could not live without it now, total recall, 2 FX processor.

    You're a IDM fan ? I like funkstorung too, great band.

    im running gear thru a mackie 1402 VLZ and i like it. love the mute/alt output. and other good features. they are the phatness.
    good filters (the low mid and high knobs). they are soooo powerful, and i use them so much in my sound sculpture.
    with a computer, if u think u might like to make electronic music ..... when u get ur hands on it u certainly will be!
    FUN
    serious FUN
    !!!
