    Hello. I am new to this forum. I am building an audio setup at my home to mess with digital audio and to play music. I selected a MBP with 4gig ram running iTunes and Live7 Suite. I have the Axiom 25 midi controller connected via usb. I have been messing about with this setup for a few months now. I have the Harmon Kardon computer speakers and sub that came with a Dell a few years ago. The sound could be much better.

    So what do I need?

    I am looking at an audio interface, perhaps the duet. Expensive though. And, do I need an additional amp? What speakers do you recommend?

    My goal is to be able to play what I create, play other music, or to mess around on the Axiom using Live.

    Please recommend...

    Thanks.

    How much do you want to spend? Are you looking to do more than that later?
    I have a NI Audio 8 DJ audio interface but I think it is over kill for you.

    You will need either an amplifier and passive speakers , OR active (self powered) monitor speakers.

    Have you read the sticky posts at the top of this forum?
