I was wondering if some one could give me some information. I have a extra room in my house that i want to become a studio. I have moved some things into the room. I have a computer with CakeWalk and FruityLoops, 2 Technic 1200's, A Casio keyboard(nothing special). And i have everything running through a stereo on the AUX channel. Could someone tell me the things i would need to hook the keyboard and the turntables up to the computer to record. And how would i go upon making a booth. How would i run it so the person in tha vocal booth would use headphones to hear the vocals.

Hello,

I have finally came to the bridge, which you are about to venture over. Mind you below the bridge is a deep cavern of dispare and hardships.
I've started out with buying some MIDI equipment. ( Casio MT640, Roland PR100, Yamaha QY10 Sequencer, Casio Tonebox, and last my Brother diskdrive. I got a Dell Computer (Dimension 4100) with cakewalk. I've been using cakewalk since they had 1.0
Just last month I bought a Professional Mic set, Boom Mic Stand, Cables, Takamine Acoustic guitar, kick butt flat panel speakers w/ sub, 4 track recorder, headphones, Lexicon Omega Recording Studio (USB) Load of MIDI, AUDIO,and Adapters to complete the studio. This month I'll be getting a Strat, and a 12 string guitar. Possibly a Drum Machine.
Thus Far I use ProTracks Plus, Cakewalk Sonar, and Sound Forge 6.0 for all of my recording needs.
I will be looking into a Roland Digital Mixer/Recorder which will have 8 XLR mic inputs and a butt-load of outputs. But I did learn a workaround to do the recording but I did run into a problem. The Tascam Porta 02 Recording Station records 4 tracks on tape. This is good, only problem is...Track 1 and 2 are only heard, 3 and 4 are gone. What I learned was I need to do all the recording tracks 1-4 then mix-down to a master recorder. Unfortunately funding has ran out. I am trying to get the sound from the output of the 4 track recorder back to my computer. This causes major problems. The sound is muffled, hissing, humming. Can't figure out what I need to do on this. But thus far I am making killer recordings with my "BAND IN A BOX" Just waiting to transfer them to a master recorder.
