    Look dumbass, we can't help you if you don't give us an amount.

    There is no such thing as "decent." It's either good, or it's not.

    Now drop a figure so we can help you.

    1. You might want to edit your thread title (if possible). That's one reason you're getting these fucked up replies...

    2. Assuming you want to record via the computer - you should go get a custom machine made. Search google for "DAW computer"; that will get you the spec's you're after. Print those spec's out and then go get someone to build it for you locally. I'm a huge fan of running dual monitors - so look into that. The soundcard of the month around here = emu1212 or 1820. Go up to guitar center and talk to someone - then go price shit onlie. Maybe get the soundcard before you have the computer built - that way you can have your builder install the soundcard.

    3. Download some *cough* demo's of the different programs like CEP, Cubase, etc... Play with them. Record some test verses and play with the editting functions. You're not trying to test for the best sound - but you need to see which one you're the most comfortable with.

    4. Do you have a decent area to record? Time to really setup shop.

    5. Now all you need to do is get a mic and preamp and some decent headphones - and some monitors.

    See....easy.

    Scroll through a few pages here - and then come back with more detailed questions.

    Jethro....

    You'll need the following.

    1. A mic that fits your voice, and you've got $6,000 saved, so don't be afraid to invest $800+ if it takes it. Let us know what your voice sounds like, or who you sound like, and I'll let you know the right mic.

    2. A mic pre-amp that will give you the sound your looking for. *Note, if you buy an interface, instead of a soundcard, you won't need to buy a seperate pre.

    3. Soundcard w/ good converters...such as the 1212M if you want to buy a seperate pre...HOWEVER, I HIGHLY suggest you purchase an RME Fireface 800 interface.
    It has built in pre-amps...4 if I remember right...a headphone amp, so you can run your headphones into another room into a both, w/ no signal loss, it's got GREAT converters...meaning shit will sound great, and it handles 56 channels of recording, something no other interface can do.
    It costs $1,450

    4. You need accurate monitors in order to mix.

    5. You need high quality mon and mic cables.

    6. You already have a computer, so you need a recording desk to put all this shit on.

    7. Reference headphones.


    Here is what I suggest you get


    RME Fireface 800 $1,450 (www.8thstreet.com)

    Event Studio Precision 8 monitors $1,300 (www.8thstreet.com)

    AKG K 271 S headphones $180 (www.8thstreet.com)

    Monster SP-1000 Monitor cables $50 x2 (www.musiciansfriend.com)

    Mogami Gold mic cable $50 x2 (incase you ever record more than one artist at once) (www.musiciansfriend.com)

    Studio RTA Producers Station $499 (www.musiciansfriend.com)

    Mic (whatever fits your voice)
    Deep voices - Studio Projects C1 $200, AT 4050 $599
    Mid Voices - Rode NT2000 $599, Blue Dragonfly $799, Blue Bluebird $399, ADK TC $599
    High Voices - AKG C414 $700, ADK TL $499, Shure KSM 44 $699

    Any of the mics listed, under the appropriate catagories will do.
