Alright, so I know I need some hardware and software. I would like some recommendations, and please keep in mind that I'm almost 18 and therefore don't have oodles of money, but am willing to spend a bit. I would greatly appreciate links to items you suggest to online stores (preferably Musician's Friend). OK, here are the things I really want to be able to do: Record multiple tracks (one at a time with real-time playback while recording new track without bleeding over) (and two or three tracks at the same time into 3 different track slots in order to post-recording edit and work on each track (EQ, Levels, Effects, etc.)) High Quality Recording voice and being able to pitch correct (I'm not that good of a singer) and vary pitch (for harmonies) Mixdown into a popular music format (MP3) in order to make discs Thanks for your help in advance.
