    Hi guys, newbie in da jaus!...well, I've been surfing several forums and tutorial pages, but I still cant find the proper answer to my question
    "what basic equipment do I need to set up an editing room?" (ok, to be fair, the ones that I found we're talking of budgets that I cant afford..right now:p hehe), I just got out of college (communications, and we cover pretty simplistic video and film editing, but, we didnt got into the details). I want to start taping shortfilms and music and corporate videos (I got a canon xl2 and a canon hv40). So far I've been working with my macbook pro 13", OS X, 2.4GHz Intel core 2 duo, and use a 1T g-raid mini when editing + creativelab speakers:eek:...see why I need ur help??. I use a lot FCP7,PS and AE.

    So, as you can see is more than simplistic and I want to improve it since I want more professional, indie, but professional results.

    So any guidance will be greately appreciate it, since I dont want to get anything that is not in my level of expertise yet or buy stuff that is not gonna be helpful for my needs (starting a pretty indie video production biz).

    Ohh..yeah, "the budget"...well, just keep in mind that I just got out of collage and have this huge entreprenurial desire, but I dont have lots of savings for this solid pro-indie editing suite (so far...$3,000:().

    10xs again!!:D

    All you need is an iMac for around 2000-2500 bucks. You are pretty settled with software.
    Throw away the Creative Labs speakers and get a pair of near field monitors from MAudio, Behringer or whatever ($150)
    A god set of headphones, like Sennheiser 280 is also important.

    Got an audio setup for your cameras?
