This is for the gear-heads in the crowd. I’m starting over from scratch on my home studio. I’m looking for real world opinions, reviews, recommendations on recording rigs (PC-based or self contained), soundcards, software, near field monitors, the works. I’ll primarily be recording acoustic guitar at first, but will eventually add other instrumentation and vocals. Sonic quality is important, but I am looking for the most bang for the buck. Any advice or helpful links would be appreciated.
The floor is yours.
