First I'd like to say that I've read MacRumors forums for quite a while (despite my lack of posts), but I've never ventured into the Digital Audio subforum. I'm very pleasantly surprised at all of the great info you guys have posted here. I don't mean to ask the archetypal newbie question on recording on the mac, but hopefully someone can help me out a bit: I've read quite a few posts here (including the stickies which gave me a good starting ground), but the advice I need is quite basic. I would like to know what pieces of equipment I would need to record quite good sounding demos for a 4 piece band (guitar, bass, drums, keys; plus vocals). I have mics, amps, etc., but I am clueless as to the recording process in the digital world (other than random messing around with Garageband and Line-in). Based on what I've read, I figure I'll either need a Firewire or PCMCIA Interface (what exactly do these do?) to start with. For software I already have access to Garageband, obviously, as well as Logic Express. My sig has the specs of my computer. Can someone give me some guidance and point me in the right direction? Thanks a lot.
