    I want to start recording and I have a windows vista laptop that never moves from my desk, and I want to turn my whole desk into like a mini recording studio I guess.....idk what crap to get, I am up to like a couple hundred bucks and I want it to look all fancy so when my friends come over they see the little purple twisty things and crap. So I need like a package or something for recording that brings like software and stuff.

    tascam fw-1082 is a really solid interface and has motorized faders, they certainly look cool when they are zipping around, even if they aren't all that useful.

    Get yourself a used Firepod. 8 simultaneous digital imputs. Enough to record a band live, or overdub however many guitar mics they want... I found mine very useful over the last 2 years.

    if you want to get into recording, maybe do some research and see what you are getting into... for a couple hundred and ease of use, something that will give you instant results and compatibility with your computer would be something like a zoom recorder:
    turn it on and hit record, play some, then transfer the files to a free or cheap daw and edit.
    or just spend a couple hundred on led lights and a box of awesome and impress your friends.
    and crap.

    You want lights and thrills, no matter what else you get, you need this:


    Regular Christmas trees :hyper:....will impress anyone (apart from also being the industry standard in fine-quality metering.)

    Think of a Dorrough as the next best thing to a lava lamp in your production environment :smug:

    ....ok, I'll leave now.....
