So i just spent $700 on a really flying machine. I got a pentium D 2.8 ghtz processor on a decent board, with 4 PCI slots, an AGP slot AND a PCI express slot. It has space for ddr and ddrII ram, so i bought 1gig of 667mhtz PC3200. Im using a behringer studio mixer, its a small 8 channel mixer connected into 2 channels on a tascam US428. For the dollar, the US428 is a steal. USB connectivity with minimal delay, mulit channel recording for up to 4 tracks, even on my crappy 800mghz. I kinda wish it was firewire and faster though, but the way i create music is different. Im running fruity loops, reason and acid to create instrumentals, and i do single channel recording to create layers. Then i get the females for the vocals. Then the rapping begins. I play jazz too, and thats the only thing i need multi channel recording for. Anywayz, i also got a DVD burner and 200gb SATA Maxtor harddrive, an old MSI ti4800 card (128mg AGP x 8) and a really sweet case with an led temp display on the front, ha ha. Ofcourse i payed the extra dollar for the quietist fans and case, only like 30 dollars extra.


So to break it down, i got the case, quiete power supply, quiete fans, DVD burner, 200GB SATA hard drive (with 16mgs of cache) , ASrock mother board, pentium D 2.8ghtz, 1 gig of pc3200 667mghz ram and some cool looking LED package, lol, had to throw that in. :D

it all comes with a 1 year warranty too

Everything else i had, the video card, US428 and behringer. I use a yamaha p200 for my controller and i use it to record some really nice piano, rhodes and organ sounds.

Anywayz, cant wait till it gets here, ill keep yall posted as i rebuild this lil in-home studio. Happy recording.
