[personal profile] alexbayleaf posting in [community profile] sound_design
I'm interested in buying some gear for home music recording. I'd like to be able to record acoustic and electric guitar, vocals, keyboard, and I guess some other random stuff I might come up with (like, idk, tambourine or something). I have a Macbook and Garageband. I don't have any sort of good studio setup -- we're just talking about a living room in an average house.

I'm thinking of getting something like the M-Audio Fast-Track Ultra and a couple of microphones (probably something good for vocals, and something good for acoustic guitar). Anyone got any recommendations/thoughts on good mics, and/or reviews or opinions or alternatives to the M-Audio doodad? Is there anything else I might want to pick up that I haven't thought of?

(Just to explain... I'm heading back from the US, where I've been living for a few years, to Australia, where all this gear will cost at least 50% more, so I'm trying to buy any major purchases I might want before I leave.)
