I'm a middle-school student and I LOVE sound/music. From very young I've been running school concert audio, have used a serious house sound system for our talent show last year and will again this year for the talent show as well as the musical. I now have a Macbook Pro and a pair of UE-5s (Ultimate Ears super.fi Pro 5) which I listen to a lot and love the quality of. What I'm asking, is what could I do and where could I go with sound recording/live audio performance as a hobby? I don't want to spend a WHOLE lot of money and probably won't in the near future, but anything I could do spending a maximum of, say, $1000-1500? (Ideally more like a few hundred bucks.) Looking for ideas of something cool to do with this hobby and what I would need to buy to implement them.
