HELP: I want to set up a home recording studio and am unsure whether to get a totally self-contained and portable digital studio (eg Roland VS 1880, Korg, etc) or a PC-based system w/ Cakewalk, Soundblaster, Echo, etc? My budget for the recording apparatus would be around $2500-3000. I could spend more if it would make a huge difference I but would prefer not. The portable factor seems nice since I could record guitar, bass, vocals, and eventally keyboards and then take the unit to my drummer's house and he could run his Roland electronic set right into the recording unit. My goal is to record myself, others, and then burn CDs in small quantities, enough for friends and family; not hundreds for record deals and mass distribution...at least not now. Currently all I have are my instruments and amplifiers. I know I'll need a couple of mics, cables, drum machine, and eventually a synth keyboard/sampler. I believe most of the recording units have FX like compression, echo, reverb, EQ, etc.
