Alright. So, a great deal of my friends are involved in the local band scene, or solo recording. Recently, a number of people have approached me asking me to record them and help produce their stuff. Now I can always learn audio software, but I have lots of questions. First off, I'm thinking I'll need a new computer that can run some processor intensive software (all my current computers are 3 years old or older). I might buy an Intel iMac (17") or a new iBook (13" model) for the time being until I get enough money to buy a MBP in a few years. Either way, I'll still need to buy software and cables and other accessories. What exactly I need I have no clue. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
