    decent by who's standards? mine? lol

    cause i work out of some $30,000-$100,000 studios that i'd hardly consider "decent" to make a quality recording in

    yeah you need a budget first off.

    hell i'm throwin down at least $20,000 for my home setup. of course its a work in progress, but still, that shit wont be enough, i'll still need to take most sessions to an actual studio.

    I had ...

    Studio Projects B1 Mic, Studip Projects VTB1 Preamp, and an Audiophile 2496 soundcard.

    I always got commented about how good my quality was.

    if you got a lil mixing skills u can make that shit sound pretty damn good.

    but hit up sweetwater.com or musicianfriend.com and search those pieces of equipment I listed, read the reviews and whatever.

    ebay is also another good place to buy equipment, if you get it from the stores on ebay, they usually are good for giving u free cables and mic stands and shit with the mic.

    ^^ yeah man.

    just get a mic, preamp, soundcard, mic stand, pop filter, cables. and your good to go. If its all for fun then you'll be good. Depends how well you want your audio to sound.
