:confused: ok... i'm very new to any homerecording stuff in general.. and i just got a mackie mixer, drum mics, some sm58's ... blah blah.. now for the question... i wanna be able to record somethign with all this... is PC recording a good way to go? or should i go into digital tape recording?
i looked at the some of the Cubase and Cakewalk programs.. but i'm lost as to what interfaces i would need in order to actually have multitracking on my computer.. can someone point me in the right direction?? thank you so much

If you already have the equipment you listed and a PC, you have a foundation for putting together a PC recording system.
You are correct about there being several options for software and interfaces. I'm a Sweetwater Sales Engineer and I'd like to find out a little bit more about your current PC and what your looking to do so we can find out which software and interface would be right for you.
Feel free to give me a call directly or email me and I will get it all straightened out for you!

I agree w/twitch - but he is no longer at Sweetwater. If you want to talk to a former Microsoft tech support employee about this, give me a call.

I think digital tape is a thing of the past. PC recording can run the range of home studio to total pro studio depending on your setup and where you put it. That is, if you have a nice studio space. PC is a hell of a lot easier and cleaner and it's easier to go to CD that way too. A PC is a lot more powerful than most digital recorders too as far as effects and editing.
