I was asked yesterday what was needed to start a home studio by my guitarist's father. He wants to go digital. I told him all I could think of off the top of my head was to get a new computer and Pro Tools or some other recording software. Now I know nothing about digital recording equipment and software at all. In fact I only knew about Pro Tools because I saw it mentioned in Rolling Stone a month or two ago. I haven't been much interested in recording anything really so I'm kinda out of my depth. I have no clue what's needed as far as gear goes, so I am humbly asking for the help of all of you. Please help me develop a rough idea of what is needed with rough price ideas if possible.
